About me

Hi, my name is Louise and I am a fully qualified, experienced integrative and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I am an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and I work within the BACP code of ethics at all times. I am fully insured and hold an enhanced criminal bureau check.

I am the founder and owner of Grey Matters Centre in Ashby, Scunthorpe.
I provide counselling on a one-to-one basis, from a variety of evidence-based therapeutic models giving the most appropriate therapeutic package for each client. My integrative approach includes; Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Attachment Therapy and Creative Therapies.

I am very passionate about my job as a Counsellor and using patience, kindness and care create a confidential and safe environment to help you to explore thoughts, feelings, behaviours and issues that may be interfering with your life. Helping you to understand more about yourself and together, as a team we can find new ways and tools which will help you to make the changes you want.


I understand that to seek counselling can seem very daunting and sometimes it takes courage and strength to take the first step. If you have decided to contact me we can arrange to meet for a full and thorough assessment. This session lasts one hour so it gives us time for you to talk about your difficulties. I will explain how I work and how our sessions will be confidential. I will ask you questions and explore what has brought you along to counselling, what is happening for you and some of your history. It will be important for me to know what your aims and goals are so that we know what we are trying to achieve. Hopefully this lets you get to know me a little and help you decide if you would like us to continue to work together. If this is what you decide to do then we can arrange further appointments for you. Usually this is once a week but we can discuss this if this is not suitable. The duration of the sessions are usually goal orientated and I am happy to be guided by your preference.


Counselling is a safe and confidential environment which gives you the space and freedom to explore your own thoughts. It helps you to understand yourself better and the way you think which will ultimately help you develop a clearer understanding of your problems. The more armed with information you are the more tools you have, the easier it becomes to work through difficulties you are facing so that you can come out of the other side feeling more positive. Counselling can also help you understand other people's points of view and the way you react to them.


I provide a confidential counselling service, the contents of the sessions are confidential between the two of us.


I have had personal experiences with Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety and Panic Attacks so I have done extensive studies on these areas and I am very passionate about this work.
