About me and my therapy practice

Whatever is on your mind, I can help……… do you feel that you would benefit from talking to someone but do not know who to turn to? Sometimes it is easier to talk to someone outside of your own family or circle of friends and be able to off load and express your inner most thoughts and feelings to someone who won’t judge you in any way.

Counselling - As a fully qualified Professional Counsellor and Coach I will listen to anything you would like to share with me, no matter how serious, sensitive or trivial you may think it is. You may not have ever experienced being truly listened to – you may have had someone listen to you but they haven’t actually heard what you are saying? This can be both frustrating and disheartening. I will both listen and hear what you are saying, and with my gentle, yet dynamic approach, will help you develop more self-awareness to be able to make subtle changes so that you can move forward with renewed happiness and confidence, knowing that you are back in control of your life.

Coaching - For many of my clients a more goal oriented or solution focused approach has more benefit than pure counselling. Coaching is about now and moving forward to achieve goals or targets, as well as learning how to improve skills and knowledge. However, in many cases it is the combination of therapies that has the best outcome.

Experience - I have been helping people improve their lives in both a positive and healthy way for well over a decade and have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this area.

Practice description

Individuals - Change your life today....... I work on a one to one basis with individuals of all ages (16+) and backgrounds covering the majority of issues including depression, anxiety, stress, abuse, relationship problems, anger, fear, low self-esteem, confidence, panic disorder and much more. The power of being truly listened to and acknowledged without judgement can be both empowering and liberating. 

Young people 16+ - Feel better about you and your life ........ I have extensive experience working with young people aged 16 and over. If you are experiencing troubles, worries or anxieties of any nature I can help you. It can feel very lonely when you are experiencing problems as a young person and it can feel like everyone else is doing okay apart from you. However, this is far from the truth. A lot of young people experience problems growing up and if you have the courage to seek help you can get over your issues. Simply talking can have a very powerful effect and realising that you are not alone can help too. Becoming more aware of the root cause of these issues can have a life-long benefit which will set you free to go forward with renewed contentment, self-assurance and feeling empowered knowing that you can move forward with ever increasing confidence.

Couples - Together you can change......... do you find that you have recurring issues that never get fully resolved; or you don’t listen to each other anymore; maybe you just can’t communicate without arguing; or the excitement has evaporated and life feels boring; maybe you’ve started a family and the dynamic of your relationship has changed; or you try to implement changes but soon slip back to old ways? With today’s high divorce and separation levels I work with couples to help you re-establish a loving, happy and healthy relationship. 

My first session

It’s important that you feel comfortable to work with me so I would like to offer you a free 30 minute telephone consultation to see if you feel I am the right person to work with.

If you decide to go ahead and work with me, during your first session I will find out from you what you would like to get out of the work we do together and how you will know that the counselling or coaching has been successful, and what will be different about your life once your sessions have ended. Knowing this at the very beginning is important so that we both know what you are working towards. Initially you may have no idea how you are going to get to where you want to. It may seem impossible, but that is why I am here to help and guide you towards that end. You will be amazed at what you can achieve with the right help.

If you would like to book your free 30 minute Introductory session simply call or text 07971 484093 or send an email to info@louisechristie.co.uk. Due to the on-going Coronavirus pandemic all sessions currently take place with an on-line video call on Zoom or Skype.
