Fran Jordan (Torbay Community Counselling) MBACP Registered
I am a Humanistic Therapeutic Counsellor, working with Adults over 18 years in the Torbay Area. I adapt Therapeutic approaches, Person Centred, Gestalt and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) looking at the Individual person as a whole, mind, body, spirit and emotion.
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 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. It is really important to feel comfortable with your counsellor, so this is a time to see how it feels and if we could work together.
Sessions can be booked weekly, it is usually helpful to have six sessions and then a review to see how things are progressing for you. I work weekdays, some evenings and my hours are flexible.
