About Frances Hamilton Counselling & Psychotherapy
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist who has had an extensive and in-depth training. I will work with you to help you find your potential and to understand what can get in the way of you moving forward with your life. My Jungian training places importance on seeking the essence of who you are. I am interested in the conscious and unconscious processes that motivate or constrict the way we live. Understanding how our learnt patterns of relating came about, can often provide the key to the changes we wish to make.
What I provide is a safe space within a professional setting for you to explore your world. I offer both short term work which may be for a set number of weeks or months and longer term work which can be open ended to suit your needs. We will meet once a week for fifty minutes; greater frequency can be arranged if needed. The initial session is an exploratory one where all these details can be discussed more fully.
My consulting room is situated within a therapeutic community in central Bath. Parking can be found via google; the rail and bus stations are within a 10-12 minute walk. Bath is easily accessible from the nearby towns of Chippenham, Melksham, Trowbridge, Bradford on Avon, Corsham, and Bristol City.
My training, work experience and any achievement
Throughout the past 18 years I have worked extensively as a counsellor and psychotherapist with sufferers of anxiety and stress, anger, bereavement and loss, depression, eating disorders, low self-esteem, separation and divorce, trauma and abuse, and a wide spectrum of mental health disorders.
During this time I have worked with the charitable organisations of Cruse Bereavement Care (Bath), Southside a community family service, Penny Brohn Cancer Care (Bristol) and Wessex Counselling Service (Frome) an affiliate of Westminster Pastoral Foundation (London). Since 2001 I have been in extensive further training with the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy and worked as a psychotherapist in private practice. I am on the approved list of counsellors and supervisors for the training programmes at Wessex Counselling Service and the Bath Centre for Psychotherapists and Counsellors.
I began working as a clinical supervisor 15 years ago providing supervision for qualified counsellors and those in training, facilitating groups and individuals. My supervisory experience has been gained through the organisations Southside, Penny Brohn Cancer Care and Wessex Counselling Service.
Since 1999 I have been a post graduate member of Wessex Counselling Service (WPF London) after gaining their Diploma in Counselling.
I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP) and abide by their Code of Ethics and Good Practice.
I am also a professional member of West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy (Jungian Section) registered with UKCP (the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists) and qualified as a Jungian Analytical Psychotherapist. I also abide by their Code of Ethics and Good Practice.
