About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I’m Fran and I offer short and long-term psychotherapy for individuals and couples who are having difficulties. 

We are living in strange and difficult days due to the corona virus. If you are scared, anxious, angry or lonely, or if you are missing your loved ones, or if someone close has passed away, it might help to talk to someone who will understand how you are feeling, and who will listen to you without judgement.

If your relationship with your partner is having difficulties due to the lockdown then I can support you as a couple.

I am able to work face to face with you because I work in a Covid-19 secure environment. I am currently also offering phone consultations and consultations via Zoom. Please ring or text me on 07522 109106, or if you prefer you can email me at

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.

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 Psychotherapy 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.
