About me

Hi!   I’m Louise.

COVID-19 UPDATE : I am currently offering telephone sessions and outdoor or walking sessions.

I am also offering a limited number of indoor sessions in Faversham for people who cannot access telephone or outdoor counselling.

Contact me for a free initial consultation to see if I’m the right therapist for you.

I am an integrative counsellor, which means I draw on different counselling concepts and adapt our sessions to suit your needs and the issues you want to explore. I focus mostly on how you are experiencing life in the here and now. I provide a non-judgemental and confidential space for you to talk about your thoughts and feelings.

I work collaboratively with you – you are the expert in your life and in what works and doesn’t work for you. I bring a range of “tools” and an understanding of psychological theory to help explore any issues or changes you would like to make in your life. I see the counselling relationship as a very human one and approach my work with you from a place of authenticity and empathy.

I have an interest in nature-informed therapy and offer a number of ways we can incorporate nature into our sessions; from using natural materials in creative work and exploring metaphors in our indoor sessions, to walking therapy or holding our sessions at the beach.

Providing a variety of methods for you to draw on to explore and express your thoughts and feelings is important to me, and I offer a range of creative techniques and exercises that can enhance the sessions. I welcome suggestions for adapting our work together and will aim to create and hold a therapeutic space in which you can thrive.
