About me and my therapy practice
I have dedicated the last 10 years of my career to working in mental health and therapeutic services. This has left me with the skills and expertise to support those in a variety of situations.
My journey began working with older people who were adapting to new ways of living, I then went into working with addictions and psychosis, before doing crisis work. After working in these areas, I moved over to specialising in anxiety and depression, which is where I gained a qualification in guided self-help, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT).
Since, I have gone on to study Mindfulness-Based CBT, Humanistic, Gestalt, Psychodynamic and Narrative Therapy amongst other therapies. 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 the therapy to fit around you and your needs rather than making you fit into the therapy.
Throughout our journey, I will make sure we are continuously reviewing and checking in to ensure you are still benefiting from our route; and we make adaptations where necessary.
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 based locally.
Rooted Psychotherapy takes its name and influence from nature, and connecting with your roots is at the heart of my work. Whether that be identifying with your inner, deeper self, discovering parts of your heritage, re-rooting and stabilising your foundations, or finding a new route to take on your journey.
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 the opportunity to learn a little of your experiences, needs and wishes.
In our first 50 minute therapy session we will focus predominantly on learning your story. It’ll help us gain a greater understanding of your aims for therapy, while also exploring how you came to be where you are today. Think of the session as planting roots.
