About Me

Helping stuck people move forwards.  Making your world a better place.

I'm Franca and I provide confidential Hypnotherapy, Counselling and Psychotherapeutic support to clients all over the world. 

During the challenging times many people are facing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, myself and many other therapists are offering either free or reduced rate therapy to NHS staff and other key workers.  

I am an experienced, qualified, professional Hypno-Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Mind Coach, and along with stress, anxiety and panic attacks, I specialise in helping stuck people move forwards, helping to support and guide you through issues from the past or present.  I also specialise in Hypnotherapy for Fertility (both natural and assisted fertility, such as IVF); I am a Psychosexual Dysfunction specialist, and I also support clients on their journeys through spiritual growth and personal development

I have a particular interest in empowering my clients to achieve their best from within,  and my aim is to support your journey forwards.

I offer a professional, confidential therapy service.  By guiding you to use the tools you already have, I can help you to make permanent, positive changes to maximise your potential for well-being, by using a variety of techniques, including Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling and Mind Coaching.

I love to educate my clients, and believe that we benefit from knowing what our mind is doing!

You are welcome to contact me by telephone or email for an informal chat about how Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling and Mind Coaching can help you find permanent, positive resolution to many issues.

I usually offer Clinical Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy and Counselling in clinics in Derby and Central London, but during these testing times, I am offering my services by Zoom, Skype and telephone only. 

You can also find me at, where you can download and enjoy a free deep relaxation recording on the Free Self-Help page.

Namaste, Franca.
