Hi! I’m Louise.
I am a counsellor based mainly in Faversham although I offer both indoor and outdoor sessions in and around Canterbury, Faversham and Sheerness.
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 outdoor counselling 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.
