Counselling & Psychotherapy in Richmond (near to North Sheen, Mortlake, East Sheen, Kew, Chiswick and Barnes).
Sometimes it can feel as though everything is getting too much. Do you feel that your mind cannot focus or slow down and that you're feeling low, anxious or irritable? Or that there is something you want to talk through that you feel overwhelmed or traumatised by? Have you had something happen to you that you want support with? If you have said yes to any of these questions, then therapy may be for you. Being in a confidential, empathic and non-judgemental environment with a trained and experienced professional listening and providing support can help you start to lead a more fulfilling life.
My name is Lorna Francis, I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, working in SouthWest London, Richmond. Together we can discuss your concerns and explore what is happening for you now and how to find freedom from these challenges and emotions. Through in depth exploration with me, new insights and awareness, ideas and choices will develop to help you live a more confident and less stressful life.
I have many years experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist and believe that a good counselling relationship is pivotal for providing you a confidential space to talk freely, to learn and have an understanding of your emotions, certain patterns and behaviours, to find self-acceptance and heal.
For the past 12 years I have been a counsellor and psychotherapist in South West London and Central London. During that time I have been a counsellor in the NHS/IAPT, within a council setting, for a bereavement charity, in private practice and within a forensic setting.
My private practice room is in Richmond. Alongside my private practice in SW London I also work in a NHS forensic setting as a Senior Therapist.
I am committed to providing a confidential and non-judgemental environment, where trust and respect can be.
