About me and my therapy practice
I have dedicated over 10 years of my career to working in mental health and therapeutic services. My journey began working with older people who were struggling to find meaning and purpose in a new way of living. I then went on to work in addictions and psychosis, before doing crisis work. After I worked in these areas, I specialised in working with anxiety and depression, which is where I gained a qualification in guided self-help, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT).
Since then, I have gone on to study existentialism, mindfulness-based CBT, humanistic, gestalt, psychodynamic and narrative therapy. It is here that I gained my Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy qualifications.
My studies lay the foundation for my work which is pluralistic/integrative, meaning I tailor therapy to fit around you rather than making you fit into a therapy. Throughout our journey, we will continuously review our work to ensure you are still benefiting from our route; and we will make adaptations when needed.
The most important part is to hear your voice, as this will be the guide for our work.
Rooted Psychotherapy is a privately run psychotherapy practice setup by me, Francesca.
The practice is based in London, but due to the nature of online sessions I am able to offer my services to anyone in the same time zone.
Face to face services remain limited to those who can access N1, London.
Rooted Psychotherapy takes its name and influence from nature, and connecting with your roots is at the heart of my work. This might mean connecting with your inner, deeper self, growing to love parts of your identity, re-rooting your foundations, or regaining a sense of purpose and meaning.
I have worked in mental health and therapeutic services for over 10 years, and whilst I specialise in ethnic minority and mixed backgrounds, I have experience with many communities and I leave my services open to all.
My first session
FREE CONSULTATION CALL
I offer a free 15 minute consultation call which allows us to get to know each other a little. It’s designed to help you decide on what sort of therapy and therapist you want, whilst also giving me the opportunity to learn a little of your experiences, needs and wishes.
In our first therapy session we will focus on learning about you in more detail. This will help anchor our work, alongside gaining a better understanding of your aims for therapy. Think of the session as planting roots.
