Shelley Francis Counselling & Psychotherapy, UKCP REG
I am a fully trained and qualified UKCP registered psychotherapist and Supervisor. I work with individuals, couples and groups. My work draws on over twenty years working in the field of intuitive bodywork, healing and counselling, which has helped to shape and inform my approach to the work.
I offer a calm and confidential environment in which to explore your situation and gain a deeper understanding of the current challenges you are facing. Whether it's for short term counselling which focuses on a specific issue, or long term counselling/psychotherapy.
My training as a transpersonal integrative psychotherapist enables me to use a variety of therapeutic approaches which will be tailored to suit your specific needs.
I pay close attention and really listen to an individual's experiences in life, I have found that this approach enbles a natural process to unfold where buried patterns and beliefs from early conditioning within the family, and the cultural environment can be revealed. Often these obstacles have prevented you from living life more fully.
This may be the first time you have considered counselling/psychotherapy in order to reflect on, and perhaps understand a long term issue or maybe to embark on a period of personal growth. Whatever the reason my approach will be one where the aim is to facilitate both change and a deeper understanding of yourself.
