About me

Hi, my name is Frances. I am a qualified and experienced counsellor. I have many years experience working with a variety of issues. I offer a confidential environment in which you can begin to explore your difficulties and better understand yourself.

My main theoretical approach is Psychodynamic, which aims to help you understand the influence of the past on present behaviours.

I integrate other models of therapy which include CBT, Person Centred Approach and Transactional Analysis. Integrating various models I feel allows flexibility to support your individual needs.

I have worked extensively with clients who have been victims of sexual abuse (adult and childhood), rape, domestic violence, coercive control, trauma, exploitation and relating issues such as anxiety, depression, low self esteem, eating disorders, alcohol and drug misuse, difficulty forming and maintaining relationships, disassociation, PTSD, Complex PTSD,loss and shame.

As well as running my private practice I work for a local counselling organisation providing counselling both long and short term to clients presenting with a range of issues including those who have been victims of crime, sexual abuse and domestic violence.

If you feel I may be the right counsellor for you then please do get in touch. sessions last 50 minutes and are charged at £45.00.

I look forward to working with you.

Member organisations


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.
