The Therapist and The Practice
Francoise is an experienced and fully qualified Hypnotherapist and Stress manager as well as a Life Coach and Meridian Therapist.
She has more than 20yrs experience in therapeutic practice.
She originally discovered the benefits of Hypnotherapy and Stress Management whilst working in Finance in the Far East in the 80s.
She then learnt to deal effectively with the effects of stress in a competitive and pressurised working environment.
The benefits she experienced led her to learn more about the subject and to train as a therapist.
Upon her return to the UK in 1992 she set up her full-time practice and further qualified with the Association of Stress Management and the Institute of Hypnosis and Parapsychology both based in Derby.
Over the years, while running a busy practice, she obtained many qualifications in related alternative fields such as: Hypno-analysis, Regression therapy, Advanced Psychotherapy, Drama Healing, Advanced Counselling skills, NLP, Meridian Therapy, Meditation, Crystal & Colour Therapy, Feng Shui, Sports Psychology and Life Coaching...(see Qualifications page).
She is presently training as a Gestalt Therapist.
Her approach to therapy is holistic and she handles the problems of each individual client with great care and professionalism whilst creating a friendly and comfortable atmosphere.
She welcomes telephone enquiries and also gives a FREE Initial Consultation during which potential clients' problems are discussed in total confidentiality and with no obligation whatsoever; she also readily gives all information needed on the various therapies she offers.
She is a member of many prominent Hypnotherapy and Stress Management Organisations in the UK (see home page) and abides by their Codes of Ethics and Practice.
Her practice is covered by a full Professional insurance of £1million.
In her spare time she is an Artist (oil, watercolour and silk painting).
