TESTIMONIALS 

 

"Leading up to my first appointment I tried to rationalise my problem in my head and did a lot of soul searching and even questioned if I should cancel. All natural emotions I imagine everyone goes through.
My first visit I sat guarded being careful how to answer in case we went down the wrong path. I was concerned I was being judged. Louise has a fantastic way of encouraging your sessions to go where you need it to go and never ever did she judge me. By the end of each session I felt in full flow and was actually disappointed that time was up.
Louise helped me no end with my issue, I now understand my character and what makes me tick better than ever before I also feel more confident and able to deal with situations where once I was nervous and guarded.
My sessions became motivational and something I looked forward to and I feel a better person for my journey. I believe everyone would benefit from counselling at some point in their lives and I couldn't recommend anyone better than Louise at Grey Matters."

 

 

"I wish I had come to you years ago. This has made such a difference to my life."

 

"Thank you so much. This has been so helpful and now I know how to deal with my anxiety. Tools for the rest of my life."

 

"Panic attacks, thank you for looking after me but I don't need you anymore. Fabulous."

 

"So grateful, I now can live my life."

 

"I didn't see how you were going to get rid of my G.A.D but you bloody well did! Wow team work at its best, thank you from the bottom of my heart."

 

"Dealing with my O.C.D I met SAM and now we are friends. Most important part is I have a choice if to let him visit me or not. My choice."

 

"Just talking, just...saved my life."

 

"Self harm saved my life, I survived. I'm still surviving but now i'm thriving."

 

"Anti-depressants are given out far too easily. They have their place and a very important job but they are not a cure. I wish I had know that years ago."

 

 

 

 

 

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.
