Louise Barrow MBACP DipTC
Hello, and thank you for stopping to look at my page. If you've found yourself looking for a therapist then I'm guessing you're in the process of making changes in your life. You know what you need ultimately, and I would like to help you with whatever it is that has prompted you to seek counselling.
I can offer you a safe space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings and be however you want to be free of judgement.
You don’t need to be in a terrible place to benefit from therapy. People sometimes come to counselling to cope with a specific challenge, perhaps family or relationship issues or generalised anxiety; low confidence; being a parent; bereavement; problems at work; or perhaps feelings arising from childhood events or trauma …many different reasons. Very often people I work with just don’t know where to start, or can't explain or understand why they feel as they do. I don't have an approach of 'one size fits all', everyone has different needs, so I work in a way that is most helpful to you.
The most important thing is to see if I am the right person for you. We will arrange an initial assessment where we can meet and discuss what is troubling you, from there we can arrange a time that suits both of us.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked with East Kent Rape line supporting survivors of rape and sexual abuse KCA where I supported service users. Along with this experience I also have extensive training in areas of mental illness, Rape, sexual abuse, these can be available on request.
I work for a counselling service where I see adults and children, presenting with complex problems. I also see private clients
I work for a private fostering agency where I counsel children in residential and foster care, this is extremely rewarding.
Having achieved my Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am working towards my accreditation with BACP. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy [BACP] having achieved their Certificate of Proficiency, and I work to their ethical framework.

In the first instance we will arrange an assessment, this will be for 40 minutes and will cost £20. This is so we can discuss what it is that you want from counselling. I will talk to you about how I work and if this is a way that will suit you.
Counselling will be at the same time and day each week; we will arrange a time that suits us both in our first meeting. I offer 12 sessions to start but this can be more should you feel that you need it.
My fee's are £35 an hour for face to face counselling.
