About me

Hi, I am Louise. I am an experienced counselling psychologist working in private practice in Marylebone (Central London). I work as an integrative practitioner; which means I have experience with CBT (including third wave CBT mindfulness techniques), Psychodynamic and Relational models of therapy. I utilise the various approaches to suit the unique needs of my clients in both the short and long term.

I am committed to a high standard professional therapeutic practice, offering a confidential, non-judgemental space to help you enhance psychological growth and development. I excel at being able to accurately identify ways to support individuals and couples improve their psychological well-being and to thoughtfully find ways to move forward in their lives. Delivering a warm and compassionate approach I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship as a platform for change and the beginning of a more satisfying and authentic experience.

I suggest that we talk over the phone, I offer a free telephone consultation to discuss what brings you to therapy and what you hope you get from it. You can call me or text me on 07702 235 380 or email me to arrange a time to talk and discuss any further enquiries you may have.



Training, qualifications & experience

My background

My passion for psychology began when I became interested in the psychology of health, having worked in healthcare for several years. I began working with behavioural patterns and relational dynamics to gain insight into individuals and what motivates their desires and intentions as I have a natural ability to engage, empathise, and ground patients. This allows me to build and maintain lasting relationships. And so this begun my journey towards obtaining a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology. As such, I have extensive experience in supporting adults with health-related issues-including coping with infertility, cancer, bereavement, anxiety and depression, occupational challenges and supporting emotional and behavioural disorders in both the NHS and Secondary care settings.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.


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.
