Frances Maclean MBACP & BPC Registered Counsellor
I am an experienced and qualified psychodynamic counsellor working with all ages of adults (individuals) in a safe, confidential space in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire. I have a wide experience including working with relationships, anxiety, depression,panic attacks, bereavement & loss, anger and self worth. Counselling can also be of help to those who have experienced loss of meaning in their lives or for those seeking a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships.
As a qualified psychodynamic therapist I will work with you in a non-directive way so that together we can explore what is troubling you.
Some of the feelings, thoughts and experiences that you struggle with today may well be connected to the situations or relationships you find yourself in now but others may arise from an unconscious part of yourself; an inner world of forgotten feelings or unresolved experiences that influence the way you think and feel today.
We can explore together how underlying emotional issues may be impacting on you and your relationships. As this understanding is gained, it can be very freeing, allowing you to find fresh and creative ways to approach your life.
How long does counselling last?
I usually work in an open-ended way which means that we will not fix the number of sessions at the start. We will continue until you feel ready to end.
I can also work in a time-limited way, usually 6 to 12 sessions which we agree at the start. Some people find this helpful if this is their first experience of counselling. it can also be effective in dealing with recent onset difficulties such as bereavement, relationship breakdown or redundancy.
We meet on a weekly basis at the same time and on the same day and sessions last for 50 minutes.
What happens next?
If you would like to arrange an initial consultation, please e-mail me or phone on 07503 040785. I use this first session as an assessment - an exploration of why you are coming now, what you are hoping for from counselling, your present situation and your past history. It is also an opportunity for you to decide whether I am the right therapist for you.
