More Detail

9+ Years Post-Registration Experience

Welcome. I'm Lou. I'm an accredited and registered counsellor - I support individuals and couples with their emotional wellbeing. I have private and voluntary sector experience as a counsellor. My interest involves bereavement, relationship problems and self esteem, as well as the specific challenges encountered by men and women.

What to Expect

A preliminary assessment appointment helps you to discover if you feel comfortable with me, share what troubles you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and determine if therapy could help you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an initial assessment session in Exeter or Dawlish.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide which issue concerning your early years and/or adulthood you discuss. An aim of counselling is to help you to speak about a problem and find a solution which is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy combines therapeutic approaches to fit your preferences and the issues you experience. It explores your subjective experiences and options. The aim of integrative therapy is to help you advance your self-awareness.
