Frances Carleton

Principle practitioner 

After years of working in change management, training, leadership, and mentoring in corporate environments, I decided to make the move away from overhead florescence and open plan and into my own space where I felt like me again.

I undertook my own therapeutic journey after a significant family loss and decided to study towards a career change.

Having studied art, writing and communications in the past, I undertook a Masters in Counselling and Applied Psychotherapy to enable me to focus on therapeutic work.  I use a number of methodologies and work with the one that most suits the needs of the individual client. Narrative and artistic expression bring together my love of words and the telling of your story for a therapeutic outcome.  EMDR allows me to work deeper with clients that have experienced trauma in the their lives. 

My mission is to guide, facilitate and nurture, while utilising both traditional and modern, evidence based, therapeutic techniques.

I’ll work with you to achieve the goals you desire so you can be the version of yourself that you seek.

Self-care is very important and because I believe that I can't help you if I'm not at the top of my game, I crochet, collect Lego mini-figures, meditate, and spend time walking with my dog Fe.

Methodologies: EMDR, Narrative, Emotional Freedom Techniques (Tapping), Psychodynamic, and person-centered.
