Louise Goldsmith BSc (Hons) UKCP Psychotherapeutic Counsellor MBACP
The Bircham Centre
Does something need to change in your life? Would it help to talk it through? Being 'heard' is crucial to our development and ability to validate ourselves as worthwhile human beings.
I provide a non-judgemental counselling service in a safe environment to help you explore your concerns and gain control of your situation.
As an integrative counsellor, I am able to draw from a range of theories to suit your needs as an individual. Through counselling, I can help you to understand yourself and as your self-awareness grows, provide you with the opportunity for positive change.
Many people have been given a label for their difficulties such as 'depression' 'anxiety' or an 'eating disorder'. I work with the person, not the label, and through this help you discover your worth as a person.
Whether you want a few sessions or need longer to work through a problem, I can help you progress. I provide a flexible and confidential service, built around your needs.
I am a fully registered and accredited member of the UKCP, to which I adhere to their code of professional practice.
I have regular supervision and undertake training regularly for my professional development. Periodically, I will engage with a personal counsellor to continue my personal development.
I have completed my degree in Integrative counselling.
I qualified as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor in 2010 and have had a private practice since then, and also worked within NHS, employed by Mind mental health charity for 7 years.
I have worked with a diversity of difficulties with very positive results. If you are interested in working with me, do call, and we can arrange to meet for an assessment after which we can talk about whether working together would suit your needs.
