Psychologist, PsychD, PsyBA Endorsed
Verified
Louise Cooper and Talking Emotions associates are experienced in Emotion Focused Therapy as well as CBT, ACT and Mindfulness and work with a range of specialist client groups and conditions (anxiety, depression, LGBTI, Parkinson's, relationships, somatic symptoms and trauma).
Our emotions tell a story, they direct our actions. But unless we are aware of how they influence what we do, they can often get in the way. Lou invites you to listen not only to the story that comes from your head, but also to what your body has to say. Developing greater awareness of your emotional experience and the skills to manage it can be the springboard to creating healthier relationships with self and others, and lead to a more productive life.

Psychotherapist, PACFA
Verified
With a strong practice underpinned by neuroscience and somatic trauma therapy approaches, I work towards creating greater tolerance toward uncomfortable sensations that arise out of difficult experiences.
As a therapist, I understand the need for warmth and acceptance. This is the foundation of a therapeutic relationship where people can show up with aspects of themselves that are problematic and unhelpful without judgement. I can relate to very human uncomfortable and undesirable behaviors, feelings and beliefs about ourselves. Through consistent support, compassion and curiosity, positive change becomes possible.

Through in-search and practice, I have discovered the critical role of somatic anchors, creativity, spontaneity and imagination for mental health & emotional well-being.
My journey of adversity, grief, loss & marginalisation led me to uncovering the intelligence of our brain & nervous system. Via my insight that 'repeatedly talking 'about' my challenges didn't serve me, I specialised in body-based creative modalities. I focus on body-based processes that ground us in the tumultuous inner world and regulate us in the outer environment I am an expert in inviting creative expression, building strength & somatic resourcing and sensory bottom-up awareness. I affirm all abilities, gender preferences, cultural identities and neurodivergence. I am interested in adapting the therapeutic processes to meet U.

Psychologist, PsychD, PsyBA - Clin. Psych

I am an integrative practitioner, drawing on several different approaches to tailor treatment to each individual, particularly psychodynamic and somatic theories which focus on the therapeutic relationship and the way the body holds onto our emotional experiences respectively. However, I also utilise cognitive and behavioural approaches when appropriate. I also believe that understanding a person’s past and growth and development is important in understanding their present situation, so find it useful to explore people’s upbringing and relationship history as part of the treatment process.

My therapeutic approach is relational and somatic .
With trauma or ongoing stress, survival energy becomes stuck in our nervous system. We might make adjustments, like seeking or avoiding certain types of situations, or clenching certain muscles to dodge tricky feelings or sensations. We believe this keeps us safe from what we fear, but it can also have us feeling trapped in patterns that take a huge toll on our lives, health and relationships. My clients and I work together to discover ways to restore a sense of inner security, peace and passion for life.
