Francesca Harden Couples Counsellor

Francesca Harden

I am an experienced couple and individual psychotherapist and offer support to anyone facing challenges in their close relationships.  I completed my postgraduate training with Tavistock Relationships. Tavistock is a renowned centre of excellence for couples therapy. I continue to practice there as a Visiting Clinician and Assessor.  I am also a member of a small clinical team offering relationship support to NHS staff.  I am a registered member of the BACP, and a graduate member of the Tavistock Relationships Association of Psychotherapists and Counsellors (TRACP).

My core approach is psychodynamic. This means that alongside exploring current anxieties and difficulties, we might also think about past experiences and patterns of relating.  The approach often provides valuable insight into why things might feel repetitive or ‘stuck’. It can unlock greater understanding and empathy for yourself and each other leading to lasting change.  I also offer my clients ways to explore and improve daily communication and interaction, using a mentalisation-based approach.  We will consider pre-existing strengths and resilience in your relationship, and how you might draw on these in the face of current challenges.

I have experience of a diverse range of clients in terms of background, culture, age, and sexuality.  Here are some of the areas I offer support with:

  • Communication difficulties
  • Feeling confused or stuck in your relationship
  • Repetitive and/or escalating arguments
  • Lack of intimacy – emotional and physical
  • Infidelity
  • Parenting
  • Fertility and conception
  • Difficulty in maintaining lasting relationships
  • Anxiety and/or depression
  • Life events such as loss, trauma and illness
  • Sexuality and identity issues

Above all I offer a non-judgemental, supportive space in which your feelings and concerns will be thought about safely and with sensitivity.

Please contact me for a free introductory call via telephone or zoom. We will discuss your needs and think about whether the services I offer are appropriate.  If we both feel I may be the right therapist for you, we can then arrange an initial consultation, with no obligation to continue.  Ongoing sessions are for 50 minutes, at the same time every week.
