Truth Joy Beauty

Just my thoughts and reflections about living and loving in the post-post modern age.


My name is Fran and I’ve been blogging on and off since 2009.

I live in Sydney with my beautiful partner Ryan, a naughty dog Ziggy and an adventurous cat Penny.

I have an undergraduate degree in Visual Arts from SCA (Sydney) and a graduate diploma in journalism from University of Southern Queensland which I completed in 2010. In 2015 I completed a graduate diploma in counselling and am now two thirds through a masters in counselling and psychotherapy. At that point, I will be done with studying but not with learning.

I used to write for a living but nowadays I write essays but to keep the creative juices flowing I occassionally post something here, but alas, I have less time for writing blog posts these days. But writing, like music, is something I will always swing back to at some point. Both are in my blood now.

I am now practicing and currently working as an AOD counsellor and in private practice when time allows. If you would like to know more about my counselling practice please visit
