About me

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.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.

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).

Fees

Additional information

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.

When I work

I can offer some flexibility in my work hours in order to accommodate shift workers, cabin crew etc.

Further information

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.
