Hello I'm Fran, if you feel unheard and are struggling to manage and understand your emotions, I would love to connect with you and offer a listening ear. It can be difficult to reach out, but asking for help is a huge step in the right direction.
I am naturally an empathetic, intuitive and caring person and I enjoy bringing these qualities into our sessions together. As a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, I have years of experience working with adults supporting them to explore painful experiences and moving forward to create a more balanced life.
I currently offer telephone and online counselling sessions, I understand that sitting in front of a camera can be uncomfortable for many, which is why I also like to offer sessions over the phone.
I trained as an integrative counsellor which means I can adapt different therapeutic techniques to find what works best for you. Some examples include: Person Centred, Gestalt and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) looking at the individual person as a whole, mind, body and spirit.
Building trust and rapport are very important to the relationship as this helps aid a solid foundation for the work we do together and creates relational depth. I work at your own pace so sessions can be short or long term.
The aim of therapy is to help support you and explore your life, gain insights, have a greater self awareness and to be able to face life challenges by changing behaviours and reactions. It can give you a new lease of life and help you to feel empowered.
In the first assessment we have a chance to meet, discuss your needs, any concerns you may have about counselling and if we both feel we can work together. I believe it is really important to feel comfortable with your counsellor and to be client-led to give you autonomy.
Sessions are booked weekly, it is usually helpful to have a few sessions and then a review to see how things are progressing for you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
