Fran Capanna provides a supportive, warm, non judgemental space for clients to freely express how they are feeling. She helps them explore their feelings and emotions and look for patterns from the past that may be arising in the present. Fran uses a Psychodynamic approach to help clients get to the root of their problems, working with unconscious thoughts and bringing them into the clients awareness. This enables the client to get a sense of who they are and why, enabling them to move forward and manage their lives differently. Fran believes that our childhood experiences can influence who we are as adults and working through our past can lead to clarity and peace of mind.
Having worked in the past with vulnerable adults and children, Fran feels that being warm, patient and understanding helps to build trust and enables the therapeutic alliance to develop. Fran aims to understand the clients world through listening to their thoughts, feeling and experiences, to create a trusting relationship with clients. Fran would like to support clients to empower them to make decisions to move their lives forward in the direction they wish to go. Fran understands how challenging coming to counselling can be and works towards supporting clients with any anxieties they may have.
Fran has completed her foundation year and is currently working towards her diploma in Psychodynamic counselling. She is registered with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). She works within The Awareness Centre’s low cost counselling service in Clapham.
