My practice is based upon the belief that if you are able to move forward towards a state of self acceptance, that you will have gained the ability to more easily overcome the barriers and challenges that life can throw at you and as a result, live a much happier and more fulfilled life. Life has the ability to throw incredible pressure at us sometimes and we can become increasingly overwhelmed and lost within it.
These difficult circumstances, whether it is fuelled by depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship difficulties or any other form of distress that manifests in our lives can make us feel alone and we often don't know how to get out of what feels like a downward spiral. My purpose is to makes sure you know you're not alone and to help you figure out how to come out of the other end of what you are struggling with.
" I've found it so helpful to have someone who could listen to my darkest problems who was non-judgmental and kind. Counselling has opened my eyes in so many ways and has helped me to gain a better insight into how my mind and feelings work. Thank you so much Frankie! "
" Working with Frankie has been invaluable after a really difficult few years since I lost my husband. The warmth and honesty she offered me helped me actually look forward to my future. When I first started seeing her I was incredibly depressed but we have been able to work through so much together. She isn't the stereotype you might expect."
" Therapy for me has been life changing. I cannot say thank you enough for your compassion, your empathy and your kindness. It has been such a blessing to be able to have you as my therapist."
" When I first went to counselling I felt hopeless, trapped and powerless in my life. My anxiety was through the roof and I didn't know how to function in my life anymore. I am now on the other side of that, I still have difficult days but going for counselling helped me learn why I react the way I do and how I can manage it before it gets out of control. Frankie's honesty and warmth have stayed with me. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending her to my loved ones or anyone looking for support and help."
" I wasn't really sure what therapy could do for me but I can honestly say that it has made such a difference to my life. I was always surprised at how well Frankie remembered the little details of what I told her and for the first time in my life, I felt heard."
"It makes me laugh when I think about it now but when I first started working with Frankie, I asked her how old she was in the first session. I couldn't understand how someone in their mid or late twenties could possibly understand how difficult life can be sometimes. I was so wrong and learned very quickly that age really doesn't matter. I saw Frankie for a year and managed to put many of the changes we spoke about into practice. It has helped my relationships and various other parts of my life as well. I cannot thank her enough."
