About me

Hi, I'm Louise Bradshaw.... and I'm so happy you found me.

I am passionate about quick and transformative results, after all, why would anyone want to suffer for any longer than they have to? No drawn-out therapy lasting years, instead together we will get to the root of the issues you are struggling with and resolve them in a way that is truly transformative.

I specialise in working with anxiety and stress, trauma, fears, and phobias. If you are sick and tired of feeling scared, anxious, and overwhelmed and want to feel better quickly then please do get in touch.

I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy, you are an individual who has lived a life like no other so the way we work is designed around YOU.

Change can feel scary and sometimes it feels easier to stay the way we are and deny the problem, after all, we've managed this long right? But change doesn't have to be scary or difficult it can be an exciting experience full of new possibilities.

Some examples of the benefits you may experience by working with me include:

Freedom from stress and anxiety
Feeling happy 
Greater resilience
Feeling confident 
Freedom from trauma symptoms
Tools to manage your thoughts and feelings 
Increased physical and emotional wellness 

I am a fully insured and qualified Hypnotherapist, Therapist, Counsellor, NLP Practitioner, and Coach with a passion for seeing others live a life free from anxiety. 

I run a friendly, relaxed, and professional practice either face-to-face in Maidstone or online via Zoom, allowing my clients all over the world convenient access to therapy from the comfort of their own homes (or anywhere else they choose to be)

If you are reading this now I'm guessing you are ready to make the necessary changes and I'd love to be a part of that.

Further information

I provide a FREE 15-minute initial telephone consultation, to discuss the issue you would like to resolve, this is an opportunity for you to ask me any questions and for me to establish the best way of working with you as an individual. 

The first full session will usually be 90 minutes. This is key as it allows me to get a deep understanding of what you are struggling with and what you would like to be different and to be able to develop an appropriate treatment program for you as an individual. Subsequent sessions will be 60 minutes long.

My clients often experience a shift and incredible relief after just this session alone.

My programs are bespoke and tailored to your needs and individual circumstances, we work in close partnership to ensure you achieve your desired outcomes.  

I am committed to providing a safe, ethical, and confidential service,  which includes a commitment to my continued professional development (CPD). I therefore regularly attend further training to enhance my knowledge and skill base and have regular clinical supervision.

I firmly believe there is 'no one size fits all', so the initial appointment is an opportunity for us to discuss the goals that you would like to work towards. 

A question that is often asked is how many therapy sessions will I need. This will depend upon you as an individual, the issues you would like to work on and would be something we can discuss at your initial appointment.

I work under the Ethical guidelines laid out by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am fully insured and registered under current Data Protection laws.

Louise Bradshaw is also registered with Hypnotherapy Directory.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
