Louise O'Malley MBCAP, DIPL in Counselling
Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile. My name is Louise and I am a trained Person Centred Counsellor. Without being too technical, that means that the approach to counselling is a non-directive one which is led by you.
We go where you want to go and talk about the issues which have led you to counselling. You can talk in confidence without being judged and I can hopefully facilitate those changes in yourself.
I have experience in many issues including:
- Abuse – Domestic, emotional, physical and sexual
- Anger issues
I have volunteered with Victim Support for about three of years.
Very often the first step is the most difficult, so true is the saying ‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’.
If you would like to take that first step then please feel free to contact me.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
