About me

  • An experienced, qualified counsellor registered with the BACP, based in Epsom. Working with both individuals and couples, offering friendly and non judgemental counselling.

Hi I'm Frances- my focus is on establishing a warm and welcoming space for you to share.  I will always listen to your needs, in order to maximise your benefit from sessions and help you achieve what you hoped from counselling. I am a qualified integrative counsellor which means I can call on many approaches to tailor counselling to your needs. Together we will work out the best way to work for you. 

I work with clients on a wide range of issues including low self esteem, loss of self worth and low self-confidence, anxiety, general anxiety disorder, social anxiety, health anxiety, panic attacks, depression, feeling sad, relationship problems, stress, family issues, anger management, bereavement and loss, domestic abuse, separation and divorce, redundancy and stress at work.

I offer both individual and couples counselling for those experiencing relationship issues. I am experienced in working on both a short term and long term basis, it is entirely up to you how many sessions you would like to have.

How Can Counselling Help You?

Counselling can give you the time to focus on you, in a warm and empathetic space, without judgement. This time can give much needed clarity and a place to talk honestly and openly, away from our lives. Whatever the challenge or issue you choose to bring, counselling can provide a rare space to explore your thoughts and feelings without distraction. Counselling is an investment in your future well being and I have seen many clients benefit hugely from this process.

I believe that everyone would benefit from counselling.  After all, we are all human beings doing our best to deal with life's ups and downs.

Counselling is not about changing who you are but about increasing awareness of yourself, challenging negative thought patterns and exploring different perspectives together. Helping you to find a better, happier and more peaceful way forward.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
