Louise Mawdsley Couple and Individual Counselling
Hi my name is Louise, thank you for visiting my page, I hope you find what you are looking for.
I am a qualified and experienced Person-Centred Counsellor, I have also completed training in CBT and couples counselling. I am able to offer one-to-one or couple counselling in a comfortable and welcoming therapy room.
Life can put us in situations we find hard to process or deal with how we feel, guilt, sadness, loss, blame, scared, vulnerable, fear of making the wrong decision, other people telling you what you should be doing. Throughout our lives we all experience difficulties that we may find hard to deal or cope with. Counselling provides an opportunity for you to explore these feelings with issues you want to present and to spend some time thinking about how you feel and what you want from the situation you find yourself in. As a Counsellor we will explore what can be painful or difficult feelings to work towards what can be change or explore feelings around acceptance so we can rebuild your confidence and self esteem so that you can move forward. We will work together at a pace that is right for you, adapting the way we work to suit your individual needs.
I have work therapeutically with a wide range of adult clients who have presented issues such as loss and bereavement, feeling sad, anxiety, stress, bereavement, depression, relationship issues, family issues, affairs, separation, divorce, bullying, homeless, self harm, low self esteem/confidence, redundancy and work related stress.
If you want to discuss any concerns you might have about starting counselling, we can talk over the phone prior to you making any appointments. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions so you can make a decision as to whether I am the right Counsellor for you.

My fee for a 50 minute counselling session is £35. £50 for an hour and a half session.
The cost includes hiring the therapy room so if you are unable to make your appointment I have a 24 hour cancellation notice period to cancel any appointments we have booked.
I have recently gained a personal interest in working with couples and helping them to understand how they have arrived at their current situation.
Being in a relationship can be one of the most happiest times of your lives but when a relationship experiences difficulties, life can suddenly feel lonely and stressful and the focus becomes around all your annoying traits or lack of trust in your relationship . Couples come to counselling to work on these issues as a couple or to come to terms with the process that their relationship has ended and look for support in helping to understand why.
