Dr Louise Davey, Counselling Psychologist (HCPC registered, BPS chartered)
I have provided therapy, psychological and emotional support, training and supervision through NHS and charity organisations for over a decade.
I am trained in a range of therapies including psychodynamic counselling and cognitive behaviour therapy. Since each person is unique, I also draw upon wider psychological theory and research to meet the individual in whatever it is that has prompted them to seek therapy. This means that our work together often involves an integration of different therapeutic approaches.
I have worked therapeutically with distress in many of the diverse forms and contexts in which it can arise, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, illness, bereavement and trauma. My doctoral research was in the field of appearance related distress, specifically the impact of hair loss on people with alopecia areata. Having worked for many years in a specialist sexual assault support service, I have particular experience of working with people of any gender who have suffered sexual abuse, including both recent sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse.
Therapy is a deeply personal process which means that it is important to find a therapist who you feel able to work with. For this reason, we would meet for an initial session to discuss what you are looking for from therapy and to think about how we might work together. We may then agree a time-limited therapy (usually 6-12 sessions) or decide to work in a more open-ended way, meeting regularly for a year or more.
