Hope Counselling


My name's Becky Francis and I am a qualified relationship and psychosexual therapist offering counselling to both individuals and couples.

I work from my home, encouraging a relaxed and informal approach where confidentiality and professional standards remain a top priority. I hold a certificate for professional liability insurance.

I have over 16 years experience as a Relate trained counsellor and am a member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapy (COSRT) and work within their ethical framework and guidelines.

I have regular supervision in Derby and attend continual professional development courses throughout the year to maintain my membership of COSRT.

I have been invited to speak regularly on both BBC Radio Derby and Erewash Sound.

My approach to counselling encompasses cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychodynamic and systemic therapies. We may, for example, talk about your background and upbringing and how that has impacted on your formulation of adult relationships, or perhaps how different systems or situations influence how you react to those around you.

You may want to attend counselling with your partner or book individual sessions whether you are in a relationship or not; or perhaps you would just like to make an initial enquiry and have a think about it. That's fine, and I am very happy to chat to you over the phone or via email about the services I offer without any obligation to commit to attending sessions.
