Louise Edwards
Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist
(MBACP Accred)

Welcome to my website. I'm an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor with a humanistic background, and I run a private practice in Guildford which is in close proximity to Woking and Godalming. I also provide the in-house counselling services for students at a local college in Guildford. I'm an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP Accred) which means that I've been assessed as a "competent, ethical and independent practitioner".
My other memberships include CIPCA (Counsellors in Primary Care), as well as the NCFED (National Centre for Eating Disorders). I am committed to providing therapeutic counselling in a safe, and non-judgemental environment.

Some of my previous counselling work experience includes working for the NHS in a GP surgery, corporate counselling, working as part of the counselling team at the Royal Holloway University, and counselling services for young people at the YMCA. I currently provide in-house psychotherapeutic services for a prestigious performing arts training academy in Guildford, as well as running my private practice. I have several years experience of working with a wide variety of issues such as abuse, addictions, depression, relationships, self-esteem, trauma, loss, eating disorders and self harm. I have in depth knowledge about the causes and effects of developmental trauma, and have specific training in issues of attachment and loss. I'm also a qualified Master Practitioner in eating disorders.

I work therapeutically with people on either a long or short term basis. I offer confidential and supportive counselling, in a comfortable private and tranquil environment, helping clients to explore issues and concerns and find better coping strategies.

  • Abuse
