I'm an experienced Counsellor working with Children, Young People and Adults for a wide range of issues with you as client at the heart of my work. Experienced in various settings -NHS,Schools, Agencies. Flexible availability throughout the week, including evenings.

Hi there, I'm Frances. I am a supportive and experienced Therapeutic Counsellor working with Children, Young People and Adults of all ages. I offer a safe, non judgemental space to explore whatever is worrying you. Having someone to listen to and offload can really make a difference.

I work from a Client Centred model, incorporating aspects of CBT and Psychodynamic therapy.

As well as being a Qualified Counsellor, I am also a trained Bereavement Counsellor, School Counsellor and BACP Qualified Substance Misuse Counsellor Practitioner.

I provide Counselling for a wide spectrum of losses, having trained and worked in a Service in the largest London Borough. I have worked with extended family, partners, parents, siblings and carers. My work covers complex and traumatic bereavement, loss of a child, sudden death, loss from addiction, multiple losses amongst other losses.

I have extensive experience in loss and complex trauma across all ages. This includes PTSD and attachment issues. Exploring early attachment helps you to understand patterns in later life.

Some of the areas I work with are anxiety, depression, loss, trauma, Mental Health issues, child therapy, relationships, work place issues, female health issues (including endometriosis and post natal depression)Diversity and family issues.

I work with you as a client at the heart of my work, giving you support at your own pace. As humans I understand feelings of self doubt, worry and difficult emotions.

My service is fully accessible at both locations. I also work in a service in North Kent counselling children, adolescents and adults, and Supervising Trainee and Qualified Counsellors. Extensive NHS setting experience.

I use talking therapy, art and drawing, play therapy, creative tools and ideas. I encourage you as client to bring what you need to therapy.

I can offer home visits and support access to therapy for all.
