Frances Loveday MBACP
BA (Hons) Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy
DipHe Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy
I am a qualified psychotherapist and a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).
In addition to my private practice, I work at a hospice as a bereavement counsellor. Prior to this, I worked for an organisation for 4 years, which provided counselling for people who had suffered any form of domestic or sexual abuse.
Through my own personal life experiences, work experience and therapeutic approach I am able to be compassionate, and work effectively with a wide range of people and issues.
I know that coming for counselling can feel daunting, I therefore offer clients a safe, understanding and accepting space where they feel comfortable to share and explore their fears and issues at their own pace and in their own time. I work with clients to build a trusting relationship from which they feel less alone, and begin to feel more trusting in themselves. Working together in this way, I find clients become more confident and feel more empowered, increasing their sense of self-worth. From this place, they can begin to find the potential within themselves to accept or resolve the difficulties they are facing, gain more clarity or find a different perspective.
My practice is non-discriminatory, and as a Registered Member of the BACP I follow their principles and ethical guidelines (www.bacp.co.uk). I hold full Professional Indemnity Insurance and am DBS checked.
