Louise Crosby BSc (Hons) Counsellor & Psychotherapist
I am a counsellor & psychotherapist who is uniquely qualified to help you feel better about yourself. Many people would describe me as a warm, compassionate person who is
a good listener, which is helpful if you are feeling fearful, vulnerable or embarrassed about sharing your feelings.
I have a vast and varied life experience that, along with my formal training, additional courses in my areas of special interest has given me a strong insight into what you may be going through.
I understand that the world can feel a scary place to be and it can be hard to begin to trust enough to share what is actually underneath ‘big’ feelings. That’s why I provide a safe, quiet, non-judgemental space with me in my office where together we can work through what is troubling you.
Our sessions can be a time to focus on you, a sanctuary away from it all where you can be supported to explore what truly being yourself feels like.
You are invited to bring whatever is present for you. I welcome you to arrive just as you are.
I value each and every person I work with.
Call me or use the email link to arrange a free 15 minute consultation. This will give us the opportunity to make contact where you are welcome to ask any questions and we can discuss a convenient time to talk on the phone. Once we have talked, if I am able to help and you feel comfortable talking to me, we can then arrange to meet at one of my offices.
After this session, if we decide we can work together, we can schedule weekly or fortnightly sessions of an hour. You may wish to start with six to 10 weekly sessions or consider working longer term. Either way, you are not committed and generally I find that clients and I naturally review progress as we go.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am fully qualified with a BSc (Hons) in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy from Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute Ltd. I have 35 years of working one to one with adults. I have been counselling adult individuals for five years.
I have a special interest in working with adult professionals who are motivated- but would like support with - exploring what might be holding them back in their life, relationships, and expression of who they are.
I believe counselling and psychotherapy can be a highly rewarding experience. My aim is to help you feel comfortable connecting more deeply in that process, with an attitude of respectful, genuine curiosity, and an understanding that I am open to whatever thoughts and feelings this evokes for you.
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.
