Counselling in Bath - Integrative Counselling - How can I help?

Integrative Counselling

France Le Garnec is a Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and follows their code of ethics.


As a Transpersonal Humanistic counsellor, she believes in the power of a warm trusting relationship between counsellor and client to heal and to help the client to become the best that he or she can be.

As an Integrative counsellor, she draws from various theories to meet the needs of individual clients.


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) focuses on behaviour and its connection to thought and feeling and may be especially helpful for people seeking practical solutions to raise self-esteem or overcome a variety of problems including: anxiety, stress, phobia, eating disorders, obsessions or compulsions. When appropriate, France uses CBT techniques and strategies, including Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)), a powerful method developed by an American clinical psychologist, Dr Francine Shapiro, to treat traumatised people. It seems to work directly with 'memory networks' to transform painful memories and rob them of their debilitating emotional power.




Family Constellations
Work this therapy was pioneered by Psychotherapist and Philosopher Bert Hellinger and his colleagues and has become recognised as a powerful approach to finding lasting resolutions even for the most difficult cases.

This therapy can help people heal from deep pain by tracing issues back several generations in a family and free the individual from an unconscious entanglement which is where an individual follows the fate of an earlier family member.
Family Constellation Therapy can be helpful for clients suffering from:
Major life events such as separation of parents or siblings, the early death or loss of a family member, major accidents or illnesses or complications during childbirth.

France specialises in working with Family Constellations in a one to one counselling setting. She trained with Vivian Broughton’s model in 2006. Each module was delivered by those renowned in this field of work – Albrecht Mahr, Franz Ruppert, Jan Jacob and Guni Baxa.
She has very successfully integrated this therapy into her general counselling work.
