[S.B. Aug 2010]   "I first visited Fran 6 months ago to discuss a couple of issues that had been affecting me and my life for a number of years. Because of these issues my confidence and self esteem was very low and I often felt stuck in my own world, with little way out and that no one could help.

Six months on, I am a different person. Initially the therapy allowed me to understand the problems I was facing and why they had been affecting me to such a degree – and it was amazing how immediate the negative opinions I had about myself changed. Through the sessions and use of techniques I have since been able to face my problems head on and I have made huge steps in overcoming barriers that have been built for me and that I have built for myself.

In addition, I have learnt an enormous amount about myself as a person, and this has helped me in other all aspects of life, being able to understand my emotions and be a far happier person. My confidence is restored and I feel really optimistic about the future.

Finally, I have always felt comfortable with the therapy and Fran has been both incredibly professional and caring throughout." [J.R. October 2010]   "Since working with Fran I am able to take things more in my stride, I have learned the importance of looking after myself and gained the courage to put myself first in certain situations. Fran helped me to pick up on certain areas of my life which restricted me from being as happy as I deserved to be and which had the potential to cause me anxiety. I was able to choose week by week what area I wanted to focus on, and this helped me to fully understand myself and change my life for the better."
