Special interest: Lifespan psychology 

I have previously worked with young people in the charitable sector and older adults in long-term care. I have a particular interest in lifespan psychology - how we develop through changing relationships and experiences from infancy to old age. I passionately believe in the plasticity of the brain throughout life and that therapy can help to foster change at any point in our lives. I have worked with clients aged between 16 and 95 years old who have experienced specific developmental issues such as family conflict, mid-life struggles to managing end of life concerns. Others have more universal feelings of loneliness, low self-worth, shame and fear.

Testimonials

'I couldn't have asked for a better therapist' (female client, 70s)

'For the first time I have been feeling amazing and I was able to sit

and complete tasks I couldn't do for a very long time and see myself

beautiful as a human. It can only take wonderful souls to work with

people at their lowest point in life. I can tell you now that I am very happy to face every morning with a smile.'

(female client, 40s)

'Absolutely A class. Louise has an uncanny ability to make you dive into your emotions to understand your feelings' 

(male client, 30s)

'Louise, you have made a difference to my life. I am extremely grateful to have met such a kind person. I hope you continue to touch the lives of those who need it the most' 

(female client, 20s)

'I was able to find myself....open my mind and trust myself again'

(female client, 40s)

'Louise was fantastic, attentive and always in tune with my emotional mood. She was probing but not pushy, and helped me see connections when I could not. Would thoroughly recommend her to anyone.'

(male client, 30s) 

'Louise listened to me patiently and did not impose her own views on me; rather, she guided me to answers and possibilities through my own reflections. I have learned a lot from her and feel like I have answers to the questions I came to her with and a wider set of tools to deal with the challenges I was facing. Thank you, Louise' 

(female client, 20s)
