Navigating Seasons Counselling Services

About Me

Welcome to my warm and nurturing space! I'm Fran, an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor based in Oldbury, West Midlands in the UK. 

Here, you can freely explore, grow, and find the support you need. With years of experience and a deep understanding of the human experience, I believe in the power of building a strong therapeutic relationship based on trust, respect, and collaboration.

I am here to empower you to overcome obstacles, nurture resilience, and thrive in all seasons of life. Take the first step on your journey of self-discovery and well-being by reaching out to me for compassionate support. Let's work together to navigate the challenges you're facing and foster positive change and personal growth.

I offer remote counselling sessions via online and telephone, providing you with convenience and flexibility. It's important to me that counselling is accessible and fits into your life.

Note: I have availability evenings only.

I have completed NCFE Levels 2 and 3 in Counselling skills, and obtained the Foundation Degree Arts in Integrative Counselling at Newman University in Birmingham.

Additionally, I have a Level 4 Certificate in Visual Impairment from Birmingham City University and I am a accredited Sight Loss Counsellor.
