HELP IN A CRISIS

 

Please note that we are not a crisis service

 

What we know is that the experience of one person and their perception of a mental health crisis are as unique and individual as the person and for what one person may feel is manageable may be for another feel completely devastating or over-powering. 

 

A mental health crisis may take a number of forms including, but not limited to, anxiety or panic attacks, psychotic experiences such as hallucinations, feelings of paranoia, relapses of a serious mental health illness or thoughts of suicide or acts of self harm.

Hi, my name is Louise and I am  the owner of Grey Matters Centre.

 

I provide counselling from a variety of evidence-based therapeutic models giving the most appropriate therapeutic package for each client. My integrative approach includes; Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Attachment Therapy and Creative Therapies.

I am very passionate about my job as a Counsellor and using patience, kindness and care create a confidential and safe environment to help you to explore thoughts, feelings, behaviours and issues that may be interfering with your life. Helping you to understand more about yourself and together, as a team we can find new ways and tools which will help you to make the changes you want.

WHAT TO EXPECT

I understand that to seek counselling can seem very daunting and sometimes it takes courage and strength to take the first step. If you have decided to contact me we can arrange to meet for a full and thorough assessment. This session lasts one hour so it gives us time for you to talk about your difficulties. I will explain how I work and how our sessions will be confidential. I will ask you questions and explore what has brought you along to counselling, what is happening for you and some of your history. It will be important for me to know what your aims and goals are so that we know what we are trying to achieve. Hopefully this lets you get to know me a little and help you decide if you would like us to continue to work together. If this is what you decide to do then we can arrange further appointments for you. Usually this is once a week but we can discuss this if this is not suitable. The duration of the sessions are usually goal orientated and I am happy to be guided by your preference.
