My name is Blou (pronounced blue like the colour). I am a friendly solution focused practitioner, lifestyle coach and Integrated Counsellor.
I am accredited by the BACP and also have an additional diploma in online counselling. I offer high quality online sessions to those who might be isolated in remote and rural locations, who may have transportation limitations or who are unable to attend face to face therapy. I am a certified Future Basing Coach, which is an outcome focused tool for organising exciting projects that can radically change your life. I also recently qualified as a Permaculture Consultant, which brings wider life enhancing and self sustaining approaches into our personal control, such as how home grown food can impact on our mood and small steps everyone can make to achieve more self reliance.
I have experience in successfully counselling people with: Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Worry, ADHD, BPD, EUPD, Trauma, Worry, Identity Expression, Loneliness, Disorganisation and Low Self Esteem.
My background is extensive and eclectic across a range of full time employed careers in the NHS, LGBT services, Community Charities, alongside my own entrepreneurial creative arts business. All of these experiences have helped me become highly skilled in communicating and guiding others to reach their full potential, in an organised and compassionate approach.
I am very passionate about non-medical model approaches to self empowerment, BioTerrain Medicine, personal responsibility, compassionate therapy and the links between food and mood from a permaculture perspective.
My sessions are £80 for 50 minutes. Please use my email address on the contact us page for further information or to request a booking. If I am fully booked I will provide connections to other qualified counselling colleagues.
Our feelings are like waves.
We cannot stop them coming,
We can choose which ones to surf.
I would like to see a world where people feel connected to themselves and those around them. If we all take steps to learn about our experiences and be compassionate in our future actions, then one by one, like the ripples of a wave, we all become secure, content and happy.
