Change your life by changing your mind
My name is Franca and I am a fully qualified Hypnotherapist, Counsellor and Mind Coach practicing from Chellaston and Mickleover in Derby and Ashby-de-la-Zouch in Leicestershire.
I have a particular interest in empowering my clients to achieve their best from within, and along with stress, anxiety and panic attacks, I specialise in Hypnotherapy for Fertility, both natural fertility and assisted fertility, such as IVF; I am a Certified Hypnotic Birthing Practitioner; and I am a Psychosexual Dysfunction Specialist.
I offer a free consultation, and a professional, confidential therapy service. By guiding you to use the tools you already have, I can help you to make permanent positive changes to maximise your potential for well-being, by using a variety of techniques, including Hypnosis, Cognitive Therapy and NLP.
You are very welcome to contact me by telephone or email for an informal chat about how Cognitive Hypnotherapy can help you find permanent, positive resolution to many issues.
I offer Clinical Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Therapy and Counselling in Derby, Ashby and the surrounding areas.
