Philosophy and style of working:
Louise’s aim is to help you reflect on areas of your life that are difficult, unresolved or in which you feel stuck, and help you understand how you might be able to make changes.
The approach Louise takes to counselling is psychodynamic, which means she’ll sometimes help you think about early life experiences and how they might contribute to your experience of the world now. She has particular experience of working with clients with ASD and Aspergers’ and Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA). She works on a short-term and long-term basis with individuals aged sixteen and over.
