About me

* Initial 20 minute chat available, free of charge to discuss working together*

Hi, I’m Louise and I am a qualified counsellor specialising in Person-Centred therapy. My focus is to build and establish an accepting and trusting relationship with you and to offer you a safe, non-judgmental and confidential therapeutic space where your experiences of life will be heard and your emotional wellbeing will be supported. You and your unique issues and needs are my central concern.

I work with a diverse range of adults and young people on a one to one basis and have established face to face and online counselling experience within private and voluntary organisations including Tomorrow’s Women Wirral, West Cheshire Bereavement Service and Childline.

My background involves working with clients who are experiencing or have experienced anxiety, distress, abuse, trauma, complexities surrounding grief and loss, childhood related issues, perinatal mental health, issues surrounding shame and self-worth, relationship difficulties including couples, family and parent/child relationships and living with uncertainty. I also offer trauma focussed counselling establishing safety and stability around traumatic experiences and processing trauma memories.

Each person has an individual way of experiencing life’s difficulties and counselling can facilitate the steps in making sense of things. I believe we all have the ability to change and grow. The benefits of counselling can include:

*improved coping capabilities

*clarification of confused thoughts and feelings

*enhanced personal insight

*the potential to move forward

Training, qualifications & experience

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.
