I work with adults (18+) and offer individual counselling and coaching sessions. If you require couples or family counselling, I may be able to point you in the direction of more appropriate services. I work with people both online or in-person. My counselling room is located in the Bridgnorth area. Other counsellors will offer telephone or home visits so please ask if you require any signposting.
I also work with businesses on a consultancy basis to help you support employees appropriately and compassionately.
We will meet in a welcoming and safe space where you can talk confidentially. We will explore the things that bring you to counselling and may include things like exploring your thoughts, feelings, emotions, patterns of behaviour, situations you are struggling with, relationships or life events.
I have a unique style of working which integrates everything I’ve learnt in my professional career so far (in psychology, counselling, coaching, mindfulness and beyond). I take a compassion-led approach to creating tailored and personalised support for your needs. Take a look below to see what previous clients have said about their experience of working with me.
Through our work, you’ll have access to a range of support, information and resources. Most of our sessions will involve talking therapy and may also include working through other approaches where appropriate, for example; writing, art, worksheets, practical tasks, mindfulness or breathing techniques.
I currently offer services in three key areas which are outlined below.
If you don’t see what you need in these options or you’re unsure what you need, contact me for a chat.
"Louise is an exceptional person. A truly dedicated coach and counsellor, her empathy, knowledge and skills are unrivalled. She has helped me to realise that grief and loss come in many different forms. Without her guidance, patience and understanding I would not be coping as well as I am today. Louise will be totally invested in you and your journey – she is an inspiration. Thank you Louise!"
"Before coaching, I was in a haze and felt completely lost. I’ve come to understand myself more than ever before, and I now know my own resourcefulness for the future."
"In just a few sessions, I went from confused and overwhelmed, to having clarity and feeling lighter. Grateful beyond words, Louise is an exceptional coach!"
"Louise has provided excellent support and guidance. Her coaching has given me the time and space to evaluate my grieving and helped me to understand it. I now feel whole and happier within myself."
It’s been an amazing experience. It’s helped me to unravel all the knots. Louise’s skills and techniques have been really good, with no structure imposed on the process."
"Louise really helped me to better understand myself. Things that I learned in our sessions have given me the tools and confidence that I need to face challenges."

"I connect with you Louise. You’re real and you’ve been there in the most painful way. I know that you understand. I love that you work with loss in all forms. Thank you."
"I highly recommend Louise’s support if you’re feeling lost. It certainly enabled me to make a commitment to the things that really matter in my life. Thank you!"
"I connect with you Louise. You’re real and you’ve been there in the most painful way. I know that you understand. I love that you work with loss in all forms. Thank you. After losing my job, coaching has helped me to unlock my true potential. I’ve learnt I have far more resources and skills to support myself than I first thought. Thanks."
"Louise is a highly talented, skilled, creative, engaging, innovative, fantastic coach and counsellor. Her helpful strategies are spot on and I’ve enjoyed the sessions."
"Louise has helped me to understand so much and enabled me to sit with my emotions and process them rather than shutting them away. I’ve found connection and regained control."
"To understand a person’s mind you must understand the person, to understand the person you must listen to their trials, tribulations and troubles. With Louise’s input, I have unlocked a large amount of difficulty within – she has helped me to understand myself."
As a result of the pandemic, we have adapted to interacting in more flexible ways for counselling. Current circumstances may pose additional challenges for some people.
I’m pleased to be able to offer one-to-one counselling and coaching both online and in-person, as well as some additional options for those who are currently impacted financially. Please ask for details.
We will agree together the regularity of your sessions, whether that be weekly, fortnightly or something else. All sessions take place in a safe and confidential space in Bridgnorth, Shropshire where you are free to talk in a warm, empathetic and non-judgmental environment. This space is easily accessible from the surrounding areas such as Bewdley, Stourbridge, Kidderminster, Telford, Much Wenlock, Highley, Calverley, Cleobury North, Kinver, and Worfield.
Low-cost counselling options include NHS talking therapy (via a GP referral) or local charities. Most private practices also offer low-cost options (including myself), so it’s helpful to discuss your needs and explore options.
If you are looking to find out more about counselling in general, research different types of therapy or look for other counsellors in your area, please take a look at the BACP webpage.
