About Louise

About Me.jpg

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and I hold a Foundation Degree in Counselling from Plymouth University. I work to the ethical frameworks set out by the BACP, and I hold an enhanced DBS certificate. I have experience as an NHS staff counsellor and as a volunteer counsellor for Bath Mind.

I began my career as a Registered Nurse, and I have a good understanding of diagnosed mental health conditions.

My background includes several roles in the voluntary sector; answering a telephone helpline for people with ME/CFS, carrying out carers' assessments, and working as an advocate helping people to navigate NHS treatment, mental health services, social services, and drugs and alcohol treatment. Spending time in these roles emphasised for me the importance of therapy and the significant differences it can make to peoples' lives.

In my private life, I am parent to a large family of adult children and a grandparent to some small ones.

Counselling uses many of the skills I have learned throughout my career, and I enjoy constant professional development study to improve my practice.
