Hi! I’m Lou. I’m a consent, respectful relationships and sexuality educator empowering young people and their carers to make informed choices about their bodies and personal relationships. One of my greatest passions is facilitating those lightbulb moments for young people when they realise “Oh, I can say ‘no’, and I don’t have to feel guilty about it!”

Do you feel overwhelmed or are you finding it difficult to cope? Part of being human and living life, means that there are times when we need extra support, but it isn't always easy to reach out. Other times it's hard to reach out because we've experienced things so painful and traumatic that it feels like you will never be understood. This often leaves us feeling unworthy, not good enough and unsafe and burdened with a pain that can never be shared.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, AASW
Verified
Hi, I'm Freya. I've been counselling for over 25 years, and a year ago started incorporating my animals (horses, dogs, cats) into my therapeutic practice. I work with all ages, and the people I work with are as unique as the issues they want to address. My clients are individuals, couples, and children. I have lived experience of neurodiversity (ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, HSP) and consequently work with a lot of people who are neurodiverse themselves. My work focusses on understanding why we are the way we are, combined with techniques that foster change and growth, with the end goal of increased well being and resilience.

Clients often want to change their behaviour and improve their lives as well as their relationships. However, fear, trauma and past hurt can cause ambivalence. Counselling can help clients work through the why, how and what of making this change. By using a number of modalities such as Motivational Interviewing, CBT, Person Centred, Strengths Based and Gestalt therapies, clients can find their way out of the dark. 'Beyond silence, there is always Hope'.

I support individuals and couples to navigate the unique challenges faced by those wanting to explore different relationship styles other than the socially accepted heterosexual monogamous relationship, such as Kink, BDSM, swinging, consensual nonmonogamy, or polyamory, especially those in mixed-orientation and queer relationships.
We are constantly evolving and can find ourselves facing difficult challenges, often influenced by family, social and cultural conditioning, religious and gender-based beliefs, roles, and biases. We might want to break free from this conditioning and constraints, this can be difficult to understand within ourselves, our relationships, and our families. We might realise that our sexual, relationship, and gender identities and preferences may be different from societal expectations, so we struggle internally to accept who we are and are then unable to live authentically. We might need support from someone to navigate these changes.
