Dr Carole Francis-Smith Counselling Psychologist
Offering services from The Old Rectory Clinic, Iron Acton, near Bristol and Online via webcam
Welcome and I hope you find what you’re looking for here.
It is my belief that life can be a struggle for us all and seeking help a first step to reconnecting with the world. We are all unique and I look to customise therapy to suit your needs. I am a firm advocate of self-compassion as a life skill and If you work with me you can expect to be treated with compassion and respect.
I find a flexible approach is helpful in aligning with your needs and start with a full assessment for all my services. Having Counselling Psychology training and experience means I can offer a range of approaches and interventions, but if I am not the person for you at this time I will help steer you towards appropriate support.
It is a great privilege to be in this position and if you feel I might be able to help please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
