About me

Hello and welcome. 

My name is Louise and I am an Integrative Counsellor this means I incorporate various methods into my work, but always working intuitively and with compassion.

This often begins by exploring what has bought you here. I realise it can be daunting to choose a counsellor so please trust yourself and go with that gut feeling. I recognise this is often difficult and we can feel stuck and unable to trust this internal guidance system. This is often part of the reason we are seeking counselling in the first place.  Please let me reassure you I have been there and so have most of the clients I work with.

We can take it slow and I always offer a free initial meet or telephone call to help you decide. If we decide to we are a match and the connection feels right then we will begin by focusing on how you are feeling and create a space for you to breath so that you can gently explore your experience. I will be a gentle guide helping you to understand yourself more fully, gaining clarity as we go.

 I believe that all of us are driven to be the best versions of ourselves but sometimes this drive can become stuck and we can feel lost and alone, we are social creatures and need each other in order to heal and then flourish.

 I recognise that within each of us exists a complex system of "parts," each with its own thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. Through gentle exploration and curiosity, we will navigate these internal landscapes, uncovering the origins of your emotions and behaviors.

Together, we create a safe and non-judgmental environment where every part of you is valued and heard.

Through this compassionate inquiry, we facilitate healing and integration, allowing you to establish a deeper connection with your true self—the core essence that lies beyond the noise of everyday life and the turmoil of past experiences. As we navigate this journey together, you will learn to cultivate greater self-awareness, resilience, and inner harmony, empowering you to lead a more fulfilling and authentic life.

If you would like more information or have any questions please send me a message in the first instance on 07894015885. 

 Wishing you well Louise x

Further information

Therapy is for everyone and I don't believe there is any issue that can't be eased through the connection of two people coming together for the purpose of gaining clarity and healing.

I work with clients from varying backgrounds and it is my belief that there is no problem that is too big or too shameful to bring to therapy. We are all inherently incredible beings but negative experiences can have a profound effect on our emotional wellbeing often leaving us spiralling into despair. Therapy is not only about the tough things we bring into the open but its about laughter and love and a coming together in a shared understanding of suffering that can often in and of itself free us from our isolation and this is the perfect space to tackle those debilitating feelings and beliefs.

I incorporate so many beautiful models into my practice that are evidence based and of which I have experienced the profound effect in my own life.

I had a lot of healing work to accomplish and my healing journey so far has encompassed 30 plus years. It is ongoing.

If you would like to have an informal chat about some of the methods I use on a daily basis and or guidance to books and recourses that have changed the way I feel please reach out and id be happy to signpost.

much love on your journey.

DBS check

Wheelchair user access
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.

I offer Sessions In Person from my private practice in Hythe. I also offer Therapy by Telephone and Online so that Therapy can be accessible to all. The Room is on the ground floor and therefore easily accessible although there is 1 step to enter.
