About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I’m Fran and I offer short and long-term psychotherapeutic counselling for individuals and couples who are having difficulties. If you need to talk to someone who will understand how you are feeling, and who will listen to you without judgement, then I will be happy to meet with you. Please ring or text me on 07522 109106, or if you prefer you can email me at

I work with individual people and couples from my home, and can offer you a warm, empathetic and confidential space where you can talk freely about your experiences and current difficulties.

I work in a person centred way where I focus on your emotions which surround your difficulties. I also use a psychodynamic approach where we can explore how your past is affecting how you are feeling right now.

I have a Diploma in Transactional Analysis which helps me to understand why you may feel or behave in a certain way and which may be holding you back and causing upset and confusion in your life and affecting you and others around you. Through talking together, I can help you understand your thoughts and feelings, and together we can move towards a happier, healthier you.

Specialising in every kind of abuse and all sorts of trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), I also have considerable experience in working with a range of difficulties, including loss, anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, low self-esteem and confidence, anger issues, personality disorders, addictions and relationship problems.
