Supporting children, young people, families and adults with mental health difficulties. 

 

I'M DR FRANCES BROWN

I understand that if you, or someone you care about, experiences psychological difficulties, it can be really overwhelming.  My aim is to to support people to better understand their difficulties and develop strategies to manage their emotions though evidence based therapy.  I believe that building strong relationships with others is important for us all, and I focus on creating a trusting and compassionate space to achieve this.

ONE TO ONE THERAPY FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

I offer psychological assessment and therapy for children and young people for a range of mental health difficulties. I deliver evidence-based therapy, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, and EMDR, which I tailor to suit the young person's needs and context. I strive to make sessions engaging and fun for children, so they feel relaxed and comfortable.

My main areas of expertise are: 

  • Low Mood

  • Anxiety

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

  • Phobias

  • Behavioural Difficulties

  • Trauma

  • Self Harm

FAMILY SESSIONS

I believe that our relationships have a significant impact on how we feel, therefore I offer family sessions alongside individual support when required.  Within family sessions, I gain an understanding of attachments and use systemic models to enhance connection and improve interactions among family members.  I also offer parenting interventions and am trained in attachment-focused as well as behavioural models.
