About me

Hi, I'm Francesca and I am a fully qualified integrative therapist. I am trained in a variety of modalities, however, we all experience the world differently so it's therefore important that your therapeutic experience is tailored to your needs and suits you. 

I work at your own pace and your focus, as you are the expert on you.  

I feel there is nothing more beautiful and rewarding than helping others through difficult times and feel that everyone can benefit from having a safe space to just be you without any judgment. 

My role as a therapist is to provide a safe and supportive space through which you might better understand the difficulties you may be facing, how you feel and how you can move forward without feeling overwhelmed. 

It's ok not to be ok.

I will hear you, ask questions to gain an understanding of what life is like for you,  so I can see the world from your eyes. I will provide you with the tools you need to move forward in life to feel empowered and able to trust in yourself.

Therapy can be a part of a treatment plan but it can also be a form of self-care that helps us process past experiences, increase our self-awareness and live a fulfilling life. 

I am always grateful to my clients who have let me grow and learn with them, they have trusted me and given me the privilege of sharing their stories with me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I am a member of the BACP

I have monthly supervision and I am fully insured.

I also regularly partake in CPD [continuing professional development]

During my counselling training, I volunteered for 2 years, working at 2 different agencies, working with a diverse range of clients both face to face and online. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, bereavement, anger, abuse, trauma, eating disorders, low self-esteem and addiction.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

The most important part of building a trusting and therapeutic relationship is that we can work together as therapy is collaborative.  

I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation, this will give us time to have a chat about your needs and to establish if you feel I am the right fit for you and we can work together. 

The best way to contact me is via email or text and then we can arrange a suitable time for us to have a telephone consultation 

I look forward to hearing from you.
