About me

Are you currently experiencing difficulties in your relationships? Or perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed and anxious at the moment? Do you feel like you would like to make some changes in your life, but you feel unsure about where to begin? Have you been through something traumatic, such as emotional or physical abuse, and need a safe supportive space to process what has happened to you?

Hello there, I'm Fran. I provide a non-judgmental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings. My focus is on supporting and empowering you, to help you make sense of your feelings. I go at your pace, meeting you with warmth, kindness and understanding; supporting you to build confidence and self-esteem, helping you to identify and meet your own needs. 

Like many others, I have experienced periods of anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement, trauma and health issues. I have felt low, anxious, insecure, stuck and lonely. I have had therapy myself, and so I know how it feels to be vulnerable; sharing difficult thoughts and feelings with someone I don't know. My training has provided me with the skills and knowledge to work with you and help you to process your thoughts and feelings.

I work with adults (18+) who are experiencing anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, bereavement, domestic abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, relationship difficulties, low self esteem and family issues. 

You have a choice of where we work together:

  • Face-to-face at the Wetmore Clinic near Ludlow, Shropshire
  • Outdoor therapy (walk and talk) near Ludlow, Shropshire
  • Online - anywhere in the UK.

So you can take your pick and choose an environment that works best for you. 

Would you like to find out more? I welcome you to get in touch and we can see if we're a good fit for one another!

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.
