Louise Ralph CPCAB DIP MBACP
Life can throw up a variety of struggles, challenges and unexpected situations which can affect us all, at any time in our lives, and leave us feeling distressed, disorientated, overwhelmed and unbalanced. These circumstances can result in us feeling emotionally, physically and mentally confused, anxious, sad, bewildered and alone.
I am a trained, qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist and I am here to help you with any difficulties and problems you are experiencing. I work to encourage you to make positive changes in your life, to assist you in finding the tools you need to overcome these issues and begin to see a clearer picture.
I am in Integrative Counsellor. Our work together is confidential. My aim is to work together with my client in building a trusting, strong and supportive therapeutic relationship in which my client feels safe, comfortable and confident enough to open up and share issues and difficulties.

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.
