Louise Alltimes PGDip MBACP
Sometimes life can throw up some challenging and difficult times, or there maybe a time in your past that you have carried with you that's been surfacing recently or holding you back from what or where you deserve to be in life. Maybe you have been experiencing feelings that you are not sure off and would like to explore them in a safe, supported way.
Counselling can be a great way to explore these feelings, around a number of issues you maybe facing or finding difficulty facing. I work with you at a time scale that suits you and through all sorts of issues, Anxiety, Stress, Trauma, Abuse, Confidence/Body issues, Bereavement, School, Exam pressures, Family issues, Depression.
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor working with Adults, Children and Adolescents, offering a space to explore feelings in a safe, supported and contained space. I have trained in all modalities, so I can shape a tool kit that allows me to offer individual 1:1 counselling support to the client in front me.
I like to work in this way because I believe everyone is different, not one size fits all. You are not everyone else, you are you and you are important!
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over six years experience working in private practice, schools and the charity sector, as well as 100s of hours volunteering for charities such as NSPCC, Crisis, Every Parent & Child. I completed my post graduate training with Terapia, who specialise with Children and Adolescents accredited by Middlesex University. I was also qualified and accredited to work with Adults who I see in private practice.
I continue to develop and attend regular CPD and am an Individual member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and abide by the ethical guidelines.
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.
