About me and my therapy practice

My name is Madelene Louw. I am a trained Counsellor/Psychotherapist with experience in the NHS, private sector and a registered member of BACP.  Feelings of being overwhelmed or hopeless might have brought you in reading my entry.  These feelings, thoughts and behaviours might feel too difficult to understand, manage or share with anyone, leaving you feeling alone or misunderstood. Our time together will allow you the space and opportunity to share your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a warm, non-judgemental and caring environment. 

Practice description

I trained as an Integrative Practitioner.  This approach helps me to choose from a range of psychological models (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person Centred and Psychodynamic) to fashion the best approach for you. Of greatest importance is the relationship that we will develop together. Establishing a trusted alliance will be fundamental to the success of our work together.

As a result of my life experience and living abroad I have developed a desire to support and come alongside anyone that feels overwhelmed. Prior to retraining as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist I worked in the private sector for 20 years. This has led me to develop an interest in career transitions and change.

The endless opportunity, in the UK and back home, to be exposed to different cultures, religious beliefs, and social environments has further fed my desire to explore the impact that change and transition might have on people.

Additionally, I have also trained as a Spiritual Director with experience of supporting clients on their spiritual journey. The spiritual journey that a person is on, is of great interest to me especially where there is possible spiritual and psychological tensions due to trauma, abuse, social, cultural, political and religious tensions.
