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.
