We all have times in our lives when things are difficult, when we need support and someone to listen to us. When emotions become too overwhelming for us to cope with alone and feel unable to share with family or friends. This is where I can help, I am able to show empathy and provide a safe and confidential place to speak freely. Together we can explore your issues and move to where and what you want to be.
My name is Louise, I am a Counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I realise how daunting it can be to find a counsellor and one that will meet your needs and expectations. I will talk you through how I work and what I can offer to try and take away that confusion and make your search easier. I am based in Wakefield and Leeds
My approach is Integrated to include Person Centred and Solution Focused. This style of working allows me to tailor the counselling to meet your needs and acknowledge that we are all unique and individuals. I believe everyone has within them the ability to heal themselves.
I will offer a safe and confidential space whether it be face to face, over telephone or on line without judgement to explore your difficulties. Together we will work to meet your goals and aims in counselling including managing anxiety, depression, suicide and grief. If you have any questions I am more than happy to help.

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.
