About me

I am a humanistic counsellor working from my practice in Lee -On-The-Solent. I strive to offer a safe and welcoming environment and aim to work alongside my clients, exploring difficulties they may be having that may be stopping them from enjoying life to the full.

I have worked with children, adults and couples and can offer, face to face, telephone or skype counselling.

Please take a look at my website and if you have any questions I am always happy to answer them. Louise.

Prior to training as a counsellor, I worked for many years in an office environment. I also did voluntary work at the Samaritans which led to a desire to study counselling further.

I have worked in a number of professional settings including private practice and the NHS (patients and staff in a hospital environment). I have run group workshops for patients with terminal cancer using creative art therapies. I have undertaken voluntary work counselling family members of prisoners and have also facilitated group sessions for the same organisation.

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.

Further information

Counselling is a process unique to each of us. It provides a regular time and place to explore the difficulties you are experiencing and the associated emotional and mental state in a safe, supportive and dependable environment. My aim is to help you to understand your problem more clearly, feel in control of your life and find your own solution. It is an enormous step entering therapy, whether it is for the first time or not. There are many different approaches and research shows that what most influences the success of therapy is the quality of the relationship between the client and the therapist. Therefore the first and most important step in your recovery is finding the therapist who is right for you. It may be personal preference and what feels like a comfortable connection. if you have any questions please give me a call and I will do my best to answer them.
