Individual Counselling

Frances Rippon offers counselling

My counselling approach is a blend of various training and life experience and has a strong mindfulness element. I offer connection, with the intention of enabling more presence so that you might move towards greater ease, understanding and compassion in relationship to yourself.

I am currently part of the Wellbeing with Cancer practitioner team  at The Living Well Centre - offering discounted sessions for people affected by Cancer.

See details of the "Wellbeing with Cancer" fund here.

"I have trained in mental health nursing, Humanistic Counselling, Reflexology and Mindfulness-Based Interventions. I have over 20 years experience in the health service, private practice and voluntary sector.

I came to this work through early experiences of the pain of mental illness in my family and I have sought throughout my life to discover ways of healing mind/heart and reducing suffering."
