About me and my therapy practice

Hello there, my name is Louise Mostyn-Mortimer. I am guessing you are reading this because you want to see if I may be the type of person you can trust with whatever is bringing you to seek counselling. Well firstly, well done in getting this far, I know it takes courage to do so. I really hope I can help. So, what can I tell you? I guess your not interested in my GCSE in Home Economics! Nor long winded blurb about where I have gained my qualifications.  What I am passionate about is helping people reach their potential, whatever they deem that to be. I have been in therapy myself on and off over the years and felt the benefit. I have lots of life experience, some good, some very challenging. I have been a bread winner in a high-powered sales environment and a single mum, I was not always a counsellor, but I have always found the most rewarding part of any job watching people develop. I have a real interest in working with Child Development and Attachment, having fostered myself for many years, including training foster carers and being the Chair of a local fostering charity. I don’t offer counselling for children but have a deep understanding of parenting, fostering and adoption. I volunteer as a counsellor at MacMillan Support Centre, for anyone touched by Cancer. My approach to counselling is integrative (Person Centred, CBT and Transactional Analysis), which means like a tool box I have different ‘tools’ or models that I can use depending on what we are discussing. For me this makes perfect sense, we are all individual and deserve an individual tailored approach. You wouldn’t knock a nail in with a screw driver! I have been told that I am warm and nurturing and a good listener. Equally I know I am resilient and forthright. I will be able to deal with the depth of any emotional upset in sessions.
