Francesca Durosini - Humanistic Counsellor - BACP Reg.
I am a BACP registered humanistic counsellor with over 10 years’ experience.
I currently run my private practice in Brighton and Hove where I work with individuals and couples presenting with a wide range of issues. I have a background in mental health, having worked for a number of years as a mental health outreach and recovery worker. As well as working as a counsellor, I also worked as a tutor teaching counselling skills courses in a college setting.
I provide a safe, non-judgemental and accepting space for you to explore your life, thoughts and feelings. I believe that every person is unique and has the ability to change and grow towards their full potential. My wish is to help you explore and make sense of things and find your own answers within yourself. I strongly believe in finding a way of working that most suits you, so I often draw on different therapeutic approaches to produce a unique therapy adapted to your needs. My work is trauma informed, and I am committed to continuing professional development and attend regular training and workshops to inform and broaden my practice.
Having a multi-cultural background, I welcome working with people for whom English is not their first language and offer counselling in both English and Italian.
I undergo regular clinical supervision and hold full insurance in line with the BACP guidelines for best practice.
I offer face-to-face and online counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a degree in Person Centred Counselling from the University of Brighton.
I have a background in the Mental Health sector and I worked for a number of years with clients with a variety of mental health conditions and complex needs in Oxfordshire and Sussex. As well as working as a counsellor, I also worked as a tutor teaching counselling skills courses in a college setting.
I am committed to regular clinical supervision and professional development and training to broaden and inform my practice.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
