Therapist - Nottingham

Nottingham NG5
Sessions from £50.00


  • Flexible hours available


I currently have availability in my practice.

My aim as a therapist is to focus on finding a flexible way for everyone to access therapy. Having previously worked shifts I am aware of the difficulties of having a busy life that does not fit into the average 9-5 template and how this can make accessing weekly appointments difficult. I struggled to find my therapist when I was working shifts and I would like to offer my clients a different way of working. Whether you work shifts or just have a busy forever changing calendar, my practice “Louise Parr Psychotherapy and Counselling” can offer you a flexible way of working, booking sessions week by week. This takes away the commitment of attending at the same time and date.

Consistent therapy is proven to be so important for the therapeutic process and as such I will aim to still schedule sessions weekly with my clients.

About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Louise and I am a Humanistic and Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in the Nottingham area.

We can often find ourselves feeling lost and disconnected from ourselves, the outside world, and others. This can be due to stress, traumatic events and experiences or can just be a natural consequence of being part of a fast-paced, ever-changing world. Therapy can provide you with the chance to reconnect, to find a new awareness and to establish a newfound ability for self-reflection.

I aim to offer a warm, relaxed safe contained space to explore and process emotions and life experiences. A space that is nonjudgmental, where you are listened to and where you can laugh, cry and most importantly be human!

My mission is to normalise Psychotherapy and encourage my clients to view therapy as a vital part of growing, healing, and navigating this difficult world.

By working at your pace safely and ethically, we are able to build a therapeutic relationship based on trust and rapport.

No issues are too big, you are not too much, and everyone is welcome.

I am a warm, patient, and non-judgemental person who truly wants the best for my clients. I promote independence and autonomy and aim to walk alongside you in your therapy journey helping you find your own path to a happier future.

Practice description

I have completed a three-year BSc (Hons) degree in Humanistic and Integrative counselling and psychotherapy at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute. This type of therapy blends different approaches to fit your individual needs so we can tailor an approach specifically for you. (If you would like to know more about this modality, please feel free to ask). I am registered with the BACP, meaning I have reached and maintain a level of competence and adhere to their guidelines and framework. I attend monthly supervision to assist with my therapy.

I previously volunteered as a therapist at Nottingham Counselling Service and enjoyed working with a diverse and wonderful client base. Alongside my private practice, I also work at Working Minds , offering short-term therapy to unemployed clients and helping them explore barriers to getting back to work.

I have a special interest in neuroscience, dysregulation, and mindfulness.

My first session

I work face-to-face within the Nottingham area and can also offer sessions online and on the phone.

There is also the opportunity to have a blend of the above to meet your needs and availability. I offer long-term and short-term therapy to adults and young people (over the age of 13yrs).

Sessions are 50 minutes long

I offer a free 15-minute session on Zoom or telephone to allow us to see what it would be like to work together. Having the correct therapist is really important for you and this initial meeting allows you to see how that would look and ask any questions you may have.

Please feel free to contact me and ask me anything about therapy, costs, location etc I am more than happy to answer any queries you have.
