About me

Hello my name is Louise and I am an experienced counsellor. I offer short-term and long-term individual counselling in Westminster (near Victoria Station), Clapham Common and The Thurleigh Road Practice (Clapham South).

Talking about your concerns is the first step to feeling better about yourself and moving forward. Therapy is an opportunity to explore your issues and conflicts creating a framework for a more positive outlook. I use a variety of approaches to help you work through and manage your problems on a day to day basis as well exploring underlying reasons and causes.

I work as a integrative, person-centred counsellor in a non directive way to help you through major life changes such as loss, bereavement and relationship problems. As well as with anxieties, depression, inner conflict and low self-esteem. Through my ongoing volunteer work with Woman's Trust and  past counselling with Victim Support I have gained extensive experience helping individuals through emotional abuse, trauma, domestic and sexual violence.

I see people for long term or time limited therapy (incorporating CBT), adapting to working in the way most helpful to the individual. I listen carefully and build a relationship in a confidential, calm and safe atmosphere that encourages open and honest conversation on what can often be a painful subject, helping to develop self-awareness and insight.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic I am presently working by telephone or online via Skype, Zoom or FaceTime. Please contact me to talk about what would be most convenient for you.
