My name is louise. I'm an experienced therapist and I love working with people from all walks of life, those with some experience of counselling and people who are completely new to this.
I encourage clients to see me as another ‘thinking person’ alongside them; someone to explore their experiences with.
Through talking and thinking about issues, important people and relationships, different patterns surface and can be worked through by the individual more easily than before.
This process can lead to increased self-awareness, greater freedom from repeated patterns of experience and an ability to be more whole as an individual.
Training, qualifications & experience
Masters Degree in Psychodynamic Counselling (BACP Accred)
Post Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling (BACP Accred)
Member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)
I have worked in a variety of settings such as a counselling clinic, private practice and the NHS.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
A characteristic of Psychodynamic counselling is that it encompasses the whole individual and all the complexities involved rather than being limited to specific issues listed above.
I deal with all areas of life according to the individual experiences and outlook of each client. However, above are a few examples of areas clients may initially wish to talk about.
Many individuals come to counselling because they want life to be better in general; it may be about personal growth and development rather than any one particular issue (and it is worth mentioning of course some people are initially unable to identify a specific issue, they just know they are unhappy or feel something isn't quite right).
Initial introductory session is free.
This gives people a chance to meet me and to get a sense of what I'm like and how I work. People are then free to decide what they want to do.
I can offer some flexibility in my work hours in order to accommodate shift workers, cabin crew etc.
Appointments are treated with confidentiality; and I can be contacted for initial enquiries by email.
The counselling room I work in is a purpose built consultation room with separate access, at the back of my property. It provides a bright and pleasant setting for therapy, in a quiet location.
