About me and my therapy practice

Hello. My name is Louise, the Founder of Galena Wellbeing.

Are the pressures of modern-day life weighing you down? Now is a time when many people are deciding to reach out for extra support. Why not connect, reflect and energise with Galena Wellbeing counselling & life coaching services? 

I am here to support you, on your journey of self-discovery.

Considerate counselling and coaching

Life is very enjoyable when things are going well, but when it becomes extremely tough, we may need to try different approaches to improve our wellbeing before we discover a method which works.

I know from personal experience, that sincere support is key and would welcome the opportunity to support you, on your journey of self-reflection with my counselling and life coaching services.

How counselling can help you

Each client is unique. I offer a trusting and non-judgemental place, allowing you space to connect with your feelings and identify issues that are weighing you down.

We work together, you in control of what you wish to share and leading the pace of the sessions, to explore ways of managing the pressures of modern life and release emotional blocks, caused by trauma and life experiences.

We gradually dig deeper and break down patterns of behaviour which are inhibiting progress, to bring about healing, resulting in emotional, physical wellbeing and transformation.

I also offer motivational wellbeing coaching, to empower clients and support them to work through obstacles in their life and find ways to move forward through exploration in the sessions, with activities, goal setting and action planning all contributing to achieving desired outcomes.

My first session

Free initial assessment

A free initial assessment will need to take place prior to counselling or life coaching commencing. This is a great opportunity to discuss any questions you may have before we start working together.

What to expect in your first counselling session?

We will discuss what has brought you to counselling, how many sessions you would like to start with and how often you want to meet (for example weekly or fortnightly). I will then go through the therapeutic and counselling contract with you, so we are both committed to the changes you want to make.

I work in a creative way, by helping you to connect with different parts of self, the aim is to get to a better understanding of identity and re-connect with positive areas which have become hidden or lost, as well as giving you the opportunity to find new strengths which further contribute to the feeling of the true self.
