Louise Drage - BA (Hons) Psychology, MBACP (Accred)
Hello, I'm Louise. I would like to tell you a little about my counselling practice and what I feel I can offer.
I am a psychodynamic/integrative counsellor and supervisor.
My primary counselling approach is psychodynamic. However, I work uniquely and integratively with each client, tailoring the counselling to individual requirements.
I offer short or long term confidential counselling for individual adults.
I also offer EMDR for the treatment of trauma and anxiety related problems.
My therapy room is based within a private clinic, which is conveniently situated in a town centre location. It is within walking distance from the bus and train stations and there is car parking nearby.
The room provides a calm and pleasant space for you to sit, relax and reflect. You will be attentively listened to and will hopefully gain insight and understanding into what may be troubling you presently.
I work professionally and ethically to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) 'Ethical Framework for The Counselling Professions'.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

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).

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I offer appointments on weekdays, during the daytime.
I believe that at our deepest level, each individual has the desire and the ability to fulfil their own true potential and to re-discover their authentic self.
I also think that you, the client, are the expert on your own life and will know the best way forward for you, even if it may be difficult for you to see at this moment in time.
Counselling can help you to understand yourself more fully, using your own inner resources.
With greater self-awareness, self-belief and self-confidence, you may be able to make positive changes that can lead to a more enriched and meaningful life.
