About me

Have you ever imagined living a happier life?  One where you are less stressed, anxious or depressed?

Or maybe one where your relationships with partner, family, friends or colleagues are easier ? 

I'm Louise, and as your integrative counsellor I work with you, enabling you to help make those desired changes possible.

***I currently offer a free 30-minute face to face consultation in my Winnington Office. Whilst this is not a counselling session, it offers you an opportunity to meet me face to face, ask more about the counselling process and everything that involves and visit the room where counselling will take place.

My feedback from previous clients when first entering the counselling process, is that it is both daunting and confusing. They comment this session helps with those fears and concerns and they then feel much more aware and prepared for their first counselling session. ****

I have worked with many clients experiencing a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and self sabotage whilst additionally supporting many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

Our counselling sessions will be empowering, liberating and can even be life changing, giving you the opportunity to gain the confidence to make positive changes to uncover your full potential.

"You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step"  

(Martin Luther King Jr)

Why choose private counselling ?

NHS counselling is usually accessed via Doctors surgeries and is often time-limited (on average 6 sessions) and there maybe a lengthy waiting list.  This counselling is not always face to face and possibly not weekly.  You may not have the opportunity to select your preferred counsellor, how often your sessions will be, where you can see them or the approach they offer.  

My therapy style is warm and interactive and work using time limited sessions or open ended therapy but noting the pace will always be set by you. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioural, humanistic, psychodynamic and others I can discuss with you as we develop our counselling relationship. I will tailor our sessions to meet your unique and specific needs.

I always acknowledge you as the expert during our sessions because nobody else knows exactly how it feels to be you, living your life every day.

I offer face to face counselling sessions, but if you do not feel comfortable meeting face to face for any reason I also offer online counselling. As we return to pre-COVID schedules life can be hectic and I understand that the usual 9-5 doesn't work for everyone. Bearing that in mind, I can also offer sessions at evenings and weekends to make sessions more accessible, we can discuss this during our initial call.  

Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to working with you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
