  • My time working with Becky was one of the most transformative experiences of my life

    I felt extremely comfortable opening up to Becky and sensed her warm and empathetic approach. Within the first few sessions, Becky was extremely quick in helping my draw the dots, and we pinpointed the key areas I needed to focus on.
  • I’m simply happier as a result.

    Her key value to me is that she really does listen, picking up on the smallest cue and finding the key to challenging my assumptions and turning my issues around
    Review of Becky Franks
  • Thanks to Becky, I love myself for the first time in 38 years and for this I will always be grateful.

    Becky is not a chin rubbing, tweed wearing type of therapist. She’s a no bullshit, say it how it is, make you feel normal type of miracle worker.

Working together

Good therapy is a collaboration between the therapist and client. It's not about being told what to do by the therapist, it's about working together to see the bigger picture of your life in order to put your jigsaw together in a way that is right for you.

The schools of thought making up my personal blend of integrative therapy


This is a very 'warm', and human therapy. Central to it is the idea that we all have the capacity within ourselves to be the best self we can be, and that this can be unlocked by an empathic, supportive, and nurturing relationship between therapist and client. One of the founders of humanism; Carl Rogers, said, "“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change"


The existentialists believe that life is hard, and that it is a struggle to be with ourselves, and in our relationships with those around us. But that we do have a personal freedom of choosing how we react to things, and that can be a source of great support and succour through these inevitable struggles.

Other schools

I also integrate elements from these other very important schools of thought - CBT and CBTi (for insomnia) ideas around the link between thoughts and actions, Mindfulness noticing and awareness ideas, concepts of Neuroscience and Neurobiology, Psychodynamic concepts of early attachments, and of transference and countertransference, and concepts from the Jungian and Gestalt schools of thought.

Some of the issues I work with:

Anger/ aggression
General feelings of 'stuckness' in life
Loss of meaning
Low self-esteem
Managing emotions
Panic Attacks
Relationship problems
Stress & change
Suicidal feelings
Well being
Insomnia/sleeping issue
Race (personal and/or issues and experiences relating to it)
