About me

Hello, my name is Louise and I am a qualified counsellor working with adults and older teenagers in the Walsall, Sutton Coldfield and Wolverhampton (Willenhall) areas of the West Midlands.

Taking the first step towards counselling can be daunting but my approach will be friendly and supportive.

Above all I won't judge or criticise, and together we will work through the difficulties you are facing.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

There are steps at both Walsall and Willenhall, making them unsuitable for wheelchair access. The therapy room in Sutton Coldfield is accessible via a short ramp. I do offer phone and video call counselling for clients with restricted mobility.

Availability

I offer daytime appointments on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and on all weekday evenings. I also offer online counselling via video call (Zoom).
