About me

Mental health is spoken about now more than ever, however for some it is still difficult to talk about feelings. Often people are worried about being seen as weak, or they are ashamed of the way that they feel. Feeling unable to talk or to share feelings and experiences can have a huge impact on our mental health. I created Time2Talk Therapy to support those who are struggling with their mental health and don't know where to turn, to let people know that they are not alone, that there is someone here to listen.

Are you feeling lonely, isolated, depressed, anxious or have thoughts of suicide? Have you experienced an event such as bereavement, loss of a job or the end of a relationship? Is your self esteem or confidence low? Do you feel trapped in a situation and see no way out? Are you a parent/carer and feel alone or that no one understands? I offer counselling to help you explore your feelings safely and without judgement. I specialise in anxiety and depression, self esteem, loss and change and parenting/caring, I also have professional and personal knowledge and understanding of Autism and PDA.

If you would like to know more please phone or text me on 07787 395731.  Alternatively you can email me at louise@time2talktherapy.co.uk

Member organisations

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.
