Louise Hales at Orchard Counselling. BSc. (Hons) Open, Dip.Couns (MBACP)
*I have returned to offering face-to-face sessions, however continue to offer sessions via zoom for those clients who wish to work remotely.*
Hi I'm Louise, a Person Centred Counsellor working in a non-directive way, this allows you to use your session to explore whatever aspect of life is important to you; such as feelings of anxiety, relationship difficulties, bereavement, job-loss or perhaps you just would like to get to know yourself better.
A person centred approach allows us to work together at a pace that suits you in a non-judgemental, safe and confidential environment. We will work together to find your best way forwards.
I am a registered member of the BACP and work to their ethical framework, ensuring high standards and evidence-based practice.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
