Louise is an integrative and holistic practitioner, using a variety of psychological models and theory to collaboratively develop formulations; these include attachment and trauma models, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT), Narrative Therapy and Systemic Therapy approaches. In addition to working therapeutically, Louise has recent experience of publishing research and delivering training to staff groups and external organisations. Her training has focused on helping charitable organisations to become Psychologically Informed Environments and thinking with staff about how they might work as teams to become more trauma informed.
Louise lives with an invisible health condition that requires her to be adaptable, courageous, and flexible. She believes that these experiences allow her an enhanced level of understanding and empathy and views them as unique qualities that inform her approach and style. She has a passion for advocating for others and seeks to promote, celebrate, and encourage inclusion, diversity and equality in the workplace and wider society. Louise feels that her distinctive and individual qualities allow her to think creatively and innovatively, and she views this as a great resource.
Louise will always take a non-diagnostic approach, being a formulation driven practitioner who values co-production and seeks to make all information accessible and inclusive to all. She is a strong believer that people will always remember how you made them feel, not necessarily what you have said, and it is this emphasis on the power of the relationship that Louise brings to all her work.
Louise is registered with the Health Care Professions Council membership number PYL 37769.
