About me

Hello, my name is Louise and I am passionate about helping people to discover the very personal, unique and innate human strengths which we all possess. I know it takes great courage to seek counselling and therapy and I am often inspired by clients who are prepared to take this step.  My aim is to provide a safe, confidential, accepting, supportive space to explore the often complex, personal issues, experiences and feelings which may be causing distress or confusion.

Talking therapeutically with a caring, empathic, committed professional can help people to understand things more clearly or help to see issues from a different perspective.  For me it can be about helping to bring out the very best in people while sometimes dealing with the worst, most moving human experiences.  Having professional support to enable the process is essential scaffolding for positive change to take place.

I have worked in voluntary, corporate, school and mental health agency settings and am particularly passionate about enhancing the wellbeing of children, young people and teenagers.  Key areas in which I work include concerns about depression, anxiety, trauma, difficulties with anger, self-esteem and relationship problems.

I also have a special interest in working with survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence and child sexual abuse, providing longer-term support for the healing and recovery process.  I work with adults, adolescents, teenagers and young people (13 yrs+) and building a genuine, trusting and caring relationship is at the core of my work.

My practice is based in two locations in Shrewsbury town centre with private and public parking close by. I hold an enhanced DBS certificate to work with both adults and children. I adhere to the ethical framework which guides my professional approach.

I work during weekdays and in the evenings by appointment.
