Louise Deane MBACP. Integrative Counsellor

Supportive and confidential

BACP logo

Initially trained in social work after a period of volunteering (including The Samaritans, an Alcohol Agency and Homestart), I trained as a counsellor whilst practising as a social worker.


I have worked with families and individuals for over 25 years through my voluntary work, my role as a Social Worker in mainstream social work, Post Adoption and in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service.


During this time I have been with and supported many different individuals and families who faced crises and had to make difficult choices.


Having also worked in the Post Adoption Service I have an understanding of adoption issues, and have a particular interest in the complexities and impact of this experience for adoptive parents. I extend that interest to those who are parenting children not born to them; whilst not the same as adoption, the parenting experience can share some similarities.


Other areas of specialist interest and also interest me are those who have suffered domestic violence, and loss of some kind.


My values are rooted in the person centred approach, where you will experience empathy, respect and acceptance. You will find I do not judge you; I am warm compassionate and will help you build trust.

I am a passionate believer in empowerment, helping you to feel able to do, to be, and to become.
