Rosemary Francis B ED, MBACP (Accred) UKRCP Counsellor/ Psychotherapist
I am an experienced counsellor based in chingford. Are you feeling anxious, depressed, having problems with relationships or just feeling stuck in a rut? Maybe you are aware of a need to be really listened to, valued, understood and accepted ?
I offer a confidential and safe space to both adults and young people for short and longer term counselling. My approach is Integrative, which means that I am skilled at using a variety of counselling interventions so that sessions are tailored to meet your individual needs.
Working through your thoughts and feelings within the context of a supportive counselling relationship can lead to a re evaluation of ways of thinking and being, so that changes and choices can be made to help you to live a more fulfilling life.
Change of any kind can often seem daunting but together we can aim to get to the root of problems, find creative solutions and overcome obstacles to your growth.
Research demonstrates that the single most significant factor in predicting the outcome of therapy is the relationship between therapist and client.
I am committed to that relationship and to helping you to explore, express and untangle aspects of yourself that may be painful, uncomfortable or confusing. It often helps and can be easier to speak to a person who is impartial and separate from your friends and family.
I have over 16 years experience as a counsellor working in educational settings, the voluntary sector, the NHS, as well as in private practice. I am also registered to provide counselling and psychotherapy under the following private healthcare schemes: Aviva Health and Pru Health.
My fees are £45 a session. Appointments are available during the day on a Monday and Wednesday and evenings.
Please contact me either by email or telephone initially. I have an answer phone and will always return your call.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold full Professional Liability Insurance and am registered with the UKCP and am an Accredited member of the British Society Of Counsellors And Psychotherapists.
My background training is in Person- Centred Counselling.
I gained a Certificate in Integrative Counselling in 1999, an Advanced Diploma in Person Centred Counselling in 2003, and became an Accredited member of the BACP in 2006.
I have extensive post qualification experience and regularly attend courses and workshops to ensure that my practice is up to date.
This enables me to work Integratively which means that I am able to draw on ideas and theories from a Psychodynamic, CBT, and Gestalt approach to psychotherapy and counselling where appropriate .
