About Louise Squires, Therapist and Counsellor London E17
I am a fully trained Psychosynthesis Psychotherapist and have been working in the field of counselling and therapy for over 15 years. I am registered with UKCP (The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and am an accredited member of BACP (The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
My Psychotherapy work experience.
Since 1998 I have managed and run my own Psychotherapy and Counselling practice which is now based in Walthamstow, London E17. I am able to understand and work with complex psychological and emotional issues from a broad range of clients of differing ages, cultures and backgrounds.
I offer an integrative approach to therapy, Psychosynthesis based, whilst including ideas from Existential, Psychodynamic, Jungian, Gestalt and Interpersonal models.
I warmly welcome a wide range of clients to my practice. I have considerable experience in the areas of anxiety and depression, relationships, sexuality and spirituality, trauma and abuse, and bereavement. I provide a safe and confidential space for clients to bring distress, crises or ‘breakdowns’, to explore life issues, relationships, worries about the past and hopes for the future.
I believe therapy is a creative, collaborative process. I use my knowledge and experience to offer my clients a unique and ‘tailor-made’ therapeutic experience, for them to explore their life and find healing in their distress. The therapeutic work can therefore be short or long term, and may incorporate or draw upon different ‘techniques’, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, using drawings, ‘empty chair’ work, imagery and visualisations.
I am also an experienced University Counsellor and Supervisor, working extensively in Higher Education with students from very varied backgrounds and ages, from all over the world, presenting with a broad range of issues. I am currently managing a counselling/wellbeing service in a busy East London University.
I have extensive experience as a Mental Health Co-ordinator in HE, assessing, referring and liaising with the NHS, and ensuring the right level of support for those with more severe mental health issues and diagnoses.
I have much experience as a Clinical Manager, managing and supervising volunteer counsellors on placement. I have also run a bereavement service.
I have undertaken additional training in life coaching, bereavement and loss therapy, group dynamics, art therapy, relationship counselling, clinical supervision and working with complex trauma.
Please feel free to contact me and we can discuss whether we could work together.
