Hello, my name is Louise, I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working with adults in central south London. I offer short and longer term counselling in a quiet and confidential space, 2 minutes walk from Tulse Hill rail station.
I aim to bring compassion, warmth and respect to my work, together with a passionate belief in the therapeutic process and individual’s capacity for growth. People come to counselling because they are looking for something to be different in their life, I am dedicated to helping you achieve this. I genuinely believe that everyone has the capacity to achieve profound change, heal from past suffering and build fulfilling relationships. The therapeutic process aims to help us understand ourselves, our lives and to foster expanding awareness. My hope is that you get to know and accept who you truly are and find meaning in life and its difficulties. I understand how daunting it can be taking the first step, but once you’ve done that we will work together to address your concerns at your own pace.
Training, qualifications & experience
There are many approaches within the field of talking therapy but in fact a lot of research has shown that the type of therapy is less important than the quality of the relationship between the client and counsellor. My training together with my experience of working with clients over time has confirmed this. I am trained to Masters level as an integrative therapist which means I draw on more than one theoretical approach depending on your needs. These include the psychodynamic, humanistic/existential and CBT approaches.
I hold a Masters Degree (MSc) in Therapeutic Counselling, gained after three years of professionally accredited training. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My practice honors the BACP Ethical Framework. I work as counsellor and psychotherapist with individuals, both short term and long term. I have worked as a therapist in the NHS within GP surgeries across Lambeth, for mental health charities as well as in private practice.
I regularly attend supervision and professional training workshops as part of my continuing professional development, and for my own interest and growth as a practitioner.
