My name is Louise and I am your Therapist. I have been trained in the Classical style of Hypnotherapy and also in Rapid Effective Techniques, including Kinetic Shift and Psy-Tap. I am also trained in Psychotheraputic Counselling.
I have plenty of other relevant training, my most recent was an ASIST course (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) which enables me to be better equipped when helping people who are suicidal. Prior to that I did Blue Light Mental Health Training with MIND.
My other training includes:
PTSD with UKHA (UK Hypnosis Academy)
The UK Hypnosis Academy Hypnotherapy Diploma Program (UKHA-HP)
Kinetic Shift Practitioner
I am committed to being the best therapist I can be and never rest on my laurels when it comes to my development and learning.
I work closely with other Hypnotherapists, Counsellors and Change Workers, so I know my clients will always receive the best and most appropriate therapy. I also work with other lifestyle professionals and are always happy to make any relevant and appropriate referrals.
If, for any reason I can't help you, I will be able to refer you to one of my colleagues. This ensures that you will always benefit from working with the most suitable therapist. You can be assured I have an up to date DBS and am fully insured.
I have been in the Emergency Services for 10 years but have always been involved in helping others in one way or another. In a previous life I was a Personal Banker, Qualified Dance Teacher and IT Sales Manager!
I am hugely passionate about helping others and believe that everything we do causes a ripple effect with those around us. Just like dropping a pebble into a pond, by creating a change within ourselves we cause a ripple effect out to others who in turn, make any necessary changes, often without even realising it themselves.
I believe I have a greater understanding of why my clients are seeking support; having been through the process myself and as such I understand the desire to be 'normal' again; to 'feel better'; to 'be my old self', to 'make it all go away', to'get out of my own way'. I know what it is like to feel that 'there is nothing that will work to stop you feeling the way you do'. I know what it feels like to receive counselling and hypnotherapy and as I have first hand experience I also know you can be better, you can feel like 'you' again, you can make the changes you want to make and be the person you want to be.
Book your first session with me and let's get 'you' back!
