About me

Helping stuck people move forwards.  Making your world a better place.

My name is Franca and I am a fully qualified, registered Clinical Hypnotherapist with additional extensive training in Counselling, Psychotherapy and Mind Coaching.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, and the challenges many people face, I am offering appointments by telephone, Zoom and Skype.  I have more recently started seeing clients face-to-face in my home clinic in Derby, where strict COVID-19 guidelines are in place.

My aim is to support your journey forwards.  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 Emotional Healing, helping to support and guide you through issues from the past or present.  I also specialise in Hypnotherapy for Fertility, both natural fertility and assisted fertility, such as IVF; Psychotherapeutic Counselling, 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, Psychotherapy, Counselling, Cognitive Therapy and NLP.

You are very welcome to contact me by telephone or email for an informal chat about how Hypnosis, Psychotherapy and Counselling can help you find permanent, positive resolution to many issues.

I offer Clinical Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling and Mind Coaching in clinics in Derby and Harley Street, London and online via telephone, Zoom and on Skype to clients all over the world.

Member organisations


The General Hypnotherapy Register

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
