Louise Walsingham BSc Therapeutic Counselling
Welcome to CaLM Counselling and Life Management offering a safe and confidential counselling service with life management skills to individuals and couples in face to face sessions. Supporting clients in their emotional healing and facilitating the changes needed to find a more productive way of being.
Counselling is not just about listening; it provides the opportunity to challenge negative thinking and gives space to develop the strategies that enable change. If you feel stuck in the same cycle of emotions and behaviours and feel you cant move forward, then perhaps counselling is for you.
Following an initial assessment we will agree upon a working contract following the ethical framework of the BACP. You will be offered six initial counselling sessions with review and flexibility for continued work.
All counselling sessions are conducted from a private address so as to maintain client discretion at all times. Parking is available
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified practitioner with experience in both private practice and the voluntary sector.
I have a Practitioners Diploma in Counselling and a BSc Degree in Therapeutic Counselling
I have always been interested in the complexity of human behaviour and interactions. After studying psychology and sociology I enrolled on a concepts to counselling course and realised that the concepts of counselling sat comfortably with my own personal core believes and ethics. After qualifying as a Counsellor I am privileged to have worked with a diversity of clients with many issues.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
