Hi I’m Francesca, a wellbeing coach
& Somatic trauma & mental informed practitioner. 

 

I have 20 years of expertise supporting both children and adults, working directly with individuals as well as in schools, charities and the corporate sector.

 

I am currently based in Oxford, in a clinic specialising in supporting children and adults with both physical and emotional challenges. 

 

The type of clients I work with are children and adults with:

  • Anxiety/low mood

  • ADHD

  • Autism

  • Back, neck, shoulder and hip pain

  • Digestive problems

  • Low confidence and low self-esteem

  • SEN

  • Sleeping issues

This type of work can be particularly helpful for teenagers who find it difficult to engage in traditional talking therapies, as well as supporting and teaching their parents and caregivers practical ways to co-regulate - something which is especially helpful for neurodivergent adolescents.  

 

In the corporate sector I support professionals of all shapes and sizes with practical tools to deal with stress and the mental challenges they face in their roles, as well as with various forms of physical discomfort.

 

Using a range of tools including mindfulness, breath work, movement, therapeutic art and play, to explore and work through difficult emotions and issues. The aim is to support my clients to live with more joy, freedom and ease. This not only increases productivity, efficiency and performance generally in the workplace but also leads to more contentment with life and the relationships that we cherish outside of it.

 

How will you feel after a session?

 

There is always a great appreciation of the sessions being tailored on each occasion to each individual's specific needs, as well as the varied "set of tools" that I use and encourage my clients to "take away" with them and to practice and use in their everyday life.

Clients tell me regularly that they "feel lighter", "more in tune with their body and feelings", "more hopeful", "less anxious" and "more relaxed in their own skin".

I'd love to help you too.

"Francesca’s teaching alongside her calm and nurturing personality has enabled me to move away from an almost constantly anxious state. She has given me somewhere to release pent up feelings and emotions which isn’t easy at home with two young children, one of whom has ASD.  Francesca and somatic movement are a permanent part of my coping toolkit".
