About me

I am Louise Bannister, a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. My role is to help you understand the difficulties you are experiencing by working together with you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. We will then try out tools and techniques that you can use to help you work towards your own personal goals and make meaningful changes in your life. One of the main aims of cognitive behavioural therapy is to help you become your own therapist so that once our work together is complete, you feel more able to face your future with self confidence and a deeper level of understanding.

Please note that due to the current COVID restrictions, face to face appointments are not available. All sessions will therefore be carried out remotely via video call on Zoom. I have found this to be a brilliant platform for therapy, however if you have any questions about it, please don't hesitate to contact me and find out more.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified cognitive behavioural therapist with a SCOTACS Diploma in CBT Counselling and Groupwork from The Centre of Therapy and Counselling Studies in Glasgow. I am a member of the BACP and hold professional indemnity insurance.

I have 2 years experience of providing one-to-one cognitive-behavioural therapy and facilitating psychoeducational groups. I have experience in a number of different areas including depression, anxiety disorders and obsessive compulsive disorder. I also have a background in grief counselling.

Member organisations


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.
