25 years of counselling experience really does make a difference. Having worked with thousands of clients I can recognise what’s happening for you faster. Reach out if you need support getting symptoms of anxiety & depression under control, tackling childhood trauma, trauma from intimate partner abuse, sexual assault or workplace bullying. I use both cognitive behavioural & sensorimotor art therapies (Guided Drawing & Clay field therapy) to rapidly improve your situation. Fundamental to my work is helping you to be more certain in yourself, better connected to yourself and others and confident in your decision making.

Do you wonder whether your goals and aspirations have been influenced by society? Perhaps if you were truly living for YOU, your goals would look quite different. Anxiety can dominate our lives until we start uncovering what we truly want out of life. Radically accepting yourself - and understanding your true desires and values - can set you on a more meaningful and fulfilling path. Looking at our issues in a Holistic way allows us to understand ourselves better, which fosters self-compassion.

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.

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.

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.

Counsellor, MA, AThR
Verified
I am an Art therapist trained in trauma informed techniques such as CPT and draw from cognitive, emotional, somatic , and creative techniques to assist my clients in their journey of recovery.
Being a therapist is my calling. I am passionate about what I do. I have always loved listening to others’ stories and soon became fervent about exploring man’s behavior and responses to unexpected events. I have lived both in ease and chaos; and have learnt to explore my thoughts in different environments. In music, ceramic, in painting or in writing, I explore my own layers of self and reform my outer with every self-encounter. I believe we human are simple in our best, but to communicate we are far more complex. I have a deep interest in art and philosophy as it make us think deeper and see the reality from different angels.

Talk therapy is combined with somatic and mindfulness practices, experiential techniques and imagery work to help access hidden facets of the psyche, make meaning of lived experiences, and move toward a richer and more fulfilling life.
Life can be hard, uncertain and confusing, and yet there is an expectation that we inherently know how to live and relate well. This is a fallacy. The realms of the personal are complex, made even more complex when two or more lives come together in relationship. Guidance, mentorship, support and education are necessary elements to navigating the vicissitudes of life and relationship. I therefore guide my clients (individuals, couples and other relationships) through a unique exploratory process of understanding, discovery and growth.
