About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Louise. I help people work through their problems and find peace of mind. I’ve got many years of experience offering a safe confidential space for us to look together at what is troubling you and find the way through. Life doesn’t always go to plan or there may be things which you have been struggling with for a long time and may not wish to tell family or friends.

You are welcome to give me a call so we can have a talk. Or drop me an e-mail if you prefer. I aim to reply in a couple of hours during weekdays and can often offer a first appointment the same week either online or in central Newcastle. My fee is £60 for a fifty minute appointment. I work both short and longer term depending on your wishes.

My background: After my English degree I qualified as a teacher, did some travelling, worked in mental health and trained as a counsellor. I have counselled in the NHS for almost 30 years but also with a major Charity doing research and in private practice. I am now a Senior Accredited Counsellor with BACP and I work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. My approach is Integrative and Humanistic; building up a trusting therapeutic relationship is at the heart of how I work and this is always individual to you and your particular needs. I have a special interest in education, disability and grief issues and my practice is an inclusive one valuing difference and diversity. I love living in the North East and my favourite way to relax is to get to the coast and have a walk along the beach.

I look forward to hearing from you!
