Louise Taylor

Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS18-06629

Location: Wigan

I am a qualified and experienced mental health professional and therapeutic counsellor. I will not tell you what to do, nor will I am claim to have all of the answers. I will listen to you without judging and I will provide a safe space where you can find your own answers.

I am not bound by any particular style or set of techniques. I am trained in person-centred counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy, and expressive therapies (for example, art, music, movement and story making.)

In my spare time, I enjoy martial arts, running and yoga. I am a member of Playback Theatre, Manchester, a company who perform audience members' stories with improvised theatre and music. My creativity shines through in my therapeutic work and I can promise you that I will not be "that counsellor" who responds like a robot.

And if you can't find the words or talking is hard, we can work in other ways. For example, drawing or expressive writing. No special artistic skill is needed as there is no "right" way to be creative.

It is important to choose the right therapist. Therefore, I offer a free introductory phone call or online session where we can discuss what you want from counselling and how I can help you.
