Louise Johnson-Gibbs MBACP
Are you going through a difficult time? Do you feel unhappy, confused or stuck with a situation in your life? Counselling can help you to find your own way forward and gain a better understanding of yourself.
I am an experienced, Person-Centred counsellor who is warm and welcoming. I can work with you to explore your thoughts and emotions in a non-judgemental and confidential environment.I am passionate about encouraging and enabling my clients to feel more empowered to see choices they have and to gain a deeper understanding and acceptance of who they really are.
I work from The Lifeways Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon and I am a member of the BACP. I offer an initial "try out" session for £25 only fee, where you can discuss your concerns, find out more about counselling and decide whether you feel comfortable working with me. I have one hour appointments during the week, Saturdays and evenings for your convenience.
Training, qualifications & experience
I initially trained to become a Person-Centred counsellor and psychotherapist at Warwick University. I regularly update my knowledge and skills by attending training courses and workshops. I attend monthly supervision to ensure that I am working ethically and professionally.
I have counselling experience working with children, young people and adults. I have worked with issues including stress, self-esteem and identity, trauma, depression, anxiety, change and relationships. Most recently, I have worked at a local hospice counselling terminally ill adults and supporting individuals and families who are facing loss or dealing with bereavement. I have worked as part of a team training other counsellors to work with grief and so I am very aware of the impact that sudden change and all kinds of loss can have on a person.
