Frances Atkinson

Coaching gives carers the time and space to talk regularly about their frustrations and challenges.  Through powerful questioning and focused listening the carer will gain clarity and insight on how best to support their loved one, other family members and to look after their own well being.

I have been a qualified coach for over 10 years now working with clients who have a varying range of needs and goals. Over the last five years, a large proportion of my work has been with carers supporting a loved one with a mental or physical illness. I have been working for the Leicestershire and Rutland CHAMS Eating Disorder team in a voluntary capacity for 5 years and for one year with BEAT.

I work predominantly with parents and carers supporting a loved one with an Eating Disorder

Fees: No

During these unsettling and uncertain times of Covid 19 I am offering my services for free. 

My coaching fees are 60 pounds for an hour of 1:1 coaching, however this is negotiable depending on circumstances.  Many of my clients who are supporting a loved one with an Eating Disorder prefer 30 minute coaching sessions on a more regular basis at a rate of 30 pounds an hour.
