About me

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

I offer counselling for a range of issues from anxiety to stress, depression to low self-confidence. I also work with people experiencing grief and loss. Please see below for some of the other areas of counselling I work with. You can also contact me via the number above, or visit https://www.louiselalleycounselling.com/ for more information or to book a counselling session.

Taking the first step towards counselling can be daunting but my approach will be friendly and supportive. I will work with you in the safe space of a therapy room where you can talk about your feelings and thoughts. Above all I won't judge or criticise you, and together we will work through the difficulties you are facing.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP) so I adhere to their guidance and code of ethics. Contact me today to discuss how counselling can help, and start the journey towards improving your sense of well-being.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
