About me

Are you often unhappy and anxious? Do you often feel overwhelmed or have difficulty making decisions? Do you have difficulty building healthy relationships, always putting everyone else before yourself? 

Hello, I'm Louise, I am a qualified therapist who works to empower women, build self-esteem, reduce anxiety, and learn lifelong coping skills. I also specialise in trauma and anxiety.

In counselling, we will work towards developing skills that you can use outside of therapy to make your life better, reduce anxiety, and become more confident. I work as an Integrative Counsellor who is proficient in the following counselling techniques; Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Rewind Technique. Using these tools, we can help you move forward, you will be able to identify the patterns in your life that cause you difficulty, and learn to change those unhelpful patterns. 

Why would you want to start working with me?

In a compassionate and non-judgemental atmosphere, you can build practical tools that will help you stop worrying, build relationships, feel less isolated, stop feeling ashamed, and develop better self-esteem. You can better manage flashbacks, nightmares, and intrusive thoughts. Understanding your attachment style will help you better meet your needs.

You can expect expert care and support as you prioritise your life and mental health. You can learn to enjoy relationships, trust yourself, and stop being over-vigilant. Abuse or bullying foster deep feelings of abandonment and can lead to people-pleasing. We can uncover how your experiences may be repeating in your relationships and work to change course.

Getting started

You can contact me via phone, text, email or schedule a free 20 minute consultation. I am looking forward to helping you.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
