About me

I am a fully registered and insured counsellor, being an Accredited Registrant Member of the National Counselling Society. I qualified as an Integrated Therapist in 2011. I have worked for local charities both before and since qualifying and have been in private practice since Oct 2016. I work with clients both privately and as an associate counsellor for Employee Assistance Programs, providing both short term solution focussed and longer term therapy. I have extensive experience of bereavement and loss, PTSD, trauma, work related stress, depression and anxiety.
As I am trained as an integrative counsellor and this means that I can tailor the theory and techniques to you the client on an individual basis dependant on the issues presented. As I am also qualified in hypnosis, and have previous experience of the Rewind Technique for PTSD and Trauma, phobias and smoking cessation, elements of hypnotherapy this can be incorporated into any therapy sessions, i.e. relaxation techniques.

Louise has been an absolute godsend, working with me through a variety of different topics and providing thoughtful and effective sessions and worksheets! I’m so glad I was matched up with her as my therapist and I couldn’t ask for more from her
