Meet Louise

myfacedancingLouise Lee MBACP (member of BACP) RGN BSc, Relate Couples Counselling trained.

I work in private practice at Norton Homeopathy Practice on Worcester Street Stourbridge, with NHS patients through Spring To Life, at Relate doing couples counselling and as a nurse in Contraception and sexual health.

I enjoy my work and feel that it’s a privilege to be able to work with people (you) and put into practice the many theories we learn as therapists. At the same time, you and I are equals and  I am impacted by what you bring to me.  The comments made by clients (see comments page) are individual and subjective and don’t necessarily reflect what I think I’m doing or what I’ve learnt.

To verify that my work is verified and genuine, I’m a member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have their Certificate of Proficiency (COP). I have qualifications in Person Centred Counselling, Transactional Analysis and couples counselling. As counsellors / therapists, we have the option of accreditation with BACP and/or UKCP which further verifies us as we are assessed by our peers. I am working towards such accreditation with UKCP. My home organisation is UKATA which is a Transactional Analysis organisation. Go on “Find a practitioner” on the UKATA website to find my details (page 9)

I’ve included links below to “Help” which is an organisation in Bristol. I’m helping to bring it to Birmingham where I working with Spring to Life enabling people on low income attain 4 sessions of therapy. Often changes come about in stages and sustained changes are made in longer term work. “Help” is a charity offering long term therapy to younger people aged 9 to 25 on a very low cost basis – £3 per session minimum.

My linked training establishment is Contact Point where my supervisor is based.

I also  work as a nurse in “family planning” (contraception and sexual health).

My hobbies are looking after Maisie Dotes my dog who takes me on a walk every day. I enjoy going to music festivals in “Gertie” the campervan.

I consider myself to be a spiritual person, a member of Jangchub Ling Buddhist Centre
