What happens when people open their hearts? They get better. 
~ Haruki Murakami

My Approach

I am an integrative psychodynamic counsellor who is able to truly adapt treatment and approach to each individual client's circumstances.  The focus is always upon the client's healing needs in a safe, non-judgementally, and fully understanding therapeutic environment.

I have practiced modalities such as person-centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, hypnotherapeutic, and psychodynamic for many years.  Clients are urged to feel self-empowered and autonomous from the get go as they practice healing techniques, which I assign, in between appointments to maximise the benefits. 

I have a particular interest in working with issues of PTSD, eating disorders and relationship issues with oneself and others. I am also a mindfulness practice teacher, a university lecturer, and a student mentor.

Success Stories

I would like to thank my patients for some of their kind words 

Probably this was the best investment in myself so far. Thanks to Dr Rutland, I got rid of my anxiety and my palpitations have especially reduced. I feel more optimistic of the future, I have got back my ability to deal with whatever life brings to me  Thank you again!

 Having had several sessions with Blue Sphere, I would totally
recommend anyone who feels they need counselling.
During our sessions I really felt heard and Francoise’s warm personality made me feel safe and at ease. I had noticeable improvement immediatly. Thank you!

Before I started the sessions with Francoise, I had given up and believed I would never get out of years of depression and addiction. She went directly to the core of the reasons of my addictions. She was patient and empathetic. It's been a year now I don't use anything and I feel great.
Thank you!
