Lou Hearty MBACP (Accred)
Troubled? Can I help? Connecting with someone who can listen with warmth, acceptance and understanding can make a difference to us - whether young or old!
I provide a warm, non-judgemental, confidential space where I work with people of all ages who may be troubled, who have lost their way, who are searching for a way forward- emotionally, spiritually, cognitively- to grow and evolve into being all that they potentially can be.
I work with young people to help them to manage difficult areas of their lives such as relationships, family, problems with friends, school, exams or studies, sleep, bullying, or cyber-bullying. Allowing them to get back to their real task of growing, developing and maturing.
Working with the many selves that make us the person we are, might include art, building, playing, writing, or movement as well as exploring dreams, thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
My background in Art and Education, my training in Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural and Person Centred therapies, and my on going exploration of the Transpersonal, enables me to explore with you in the way that suits you best.
Our initial session is all about finding out how we might work together to help you along your path in a way that fits for you.
We may meet for only one session or many more than that - it is entirely up to you but after six sessions we would review where we were and how we wanted to proceed.
Face to Face sessions take place in Stonehaven which is easy to reach by train bus or car and there is roadside parking outside the building.
