My name is Louise and I offer an opportunity for you to discuss and work through your issues in a confidential, supportive, non-judgemental environment.
As the client, you are the heart of your therapy and how I work with you will be an ongoing open communiation between us, to ensure that you get the most from your therapy. My integrative approach draws on a wide range of theories and methods to address your issues and support you as an individual. Examples of theories I use include Transactional Analysis, Gestalt , Attachment , Solution Focused and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and methods such as imagery, creativity, mindfulness and simply listening and talking.
I began practicing in 2014, training in a GP practice and mental health organisation and setting up my private practice in 2016 after qualifying as a psychotherapeutic counsellor. In 2019, I completed my Masters in Psychotherapy and qualified as a psychotheraist. I have worked with a range of issues including low self esteem, depression, anxiety, childhood and adult abuse and neglect, bereavement and loss, trauma, work and relationship issues. I provide short and long term integrative therapy, tailored to suit your needs.
As a qualified psychotherapist, I can help you work through past and present issues, depending on your needs and what you want to gain from therapy.
I undertook six years of training, assessment and practice before qualifing as a psychotherapist. This has given me a deeper understanding about how we develop, the influencing factors in how we form our beliefs about ourselves and the world and how these beliefs may affect our here and now.
Working together, I can help you gain a better understanding and awareness of how you view yourself and your world and the choices and decisions you make. This provides you with the opportunity to make changes to your life on numerous levels going forward.
