I’m Louise, a psychodynamic counsellor who is registered with the BACP.
My practice is psychoanalytically informed. This has a very here & now focus, looking at the patterns of difficulty we currently experience. We may notice symptoms that are causing distress or just feel something isn’t quite right. The focus is on our ways of relating; how we relate to ourselves and to others. This can be a specific focus or pattern (for shorter term work) or it may be more exploratory.
Psychodynamic counselling can help us to look at our distress in a safe space with an other. This may take us back to childhood, exploring where patterns developed from. Or we may mostly focus upon our current relationships, including the one that forms in the therapy itself. Doing this with a counsellor allows us to have the distress held, so that we can start to think about how things really are for us.
I am currently offering therapy via Skype, Zoom, Facetime and telephone appointments.
