Louise Andrew MBACP Reg. NCS Accred.
However much we may feel that we should be able to cope with anxieties, depression, stress, loss, bereavement, lack of self confidence and other difficult feelings, sometimes we can't and we need to seek help.
I offer counselling in a safe and peaceful room overlooking a private garden. My training and way of working is person-centred counselling (Humanistic/Integrative), which is a collaborative partnership, balanced between you, the client, and me, the counsellor, working together to explore issues that are causing problems and distress and trying to find a way forward to manage, or, even better, to resolve these issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
After completing a Foundation Counselling course in 2008/9 I went on to train and qualify as a Cruse Bereavement Care Volunteer in 2010. I then qualified with a Diploma in Humanistic/Integrative Counselling (Dip.HIC) from Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling in 2014. I have been working with Cruse since 2010 and with TimetoTalk, West Berkshire (a BACP accredited youth counselling agency), since 2012. I also run a private counselling practice.
