Louise McIlvenny MBACP (Accred)

Accredited Integrative Adult Counsellor

University of Ulster Level 4 Certificate in Counselling, University of Ulster Foundation Degree in Counselling

Hi, I’m Louise – I am an Integrative counsellor. Since 2014 I’ve been supporting clients struggling with many issues – various types of loss, strong emotions related to past or current events, challenging personal or work relationships, abusive or wounding life events. I’ve worked with people with recurring or persistent low mood, anxiety, irritability, addiction, confidence issues, feeling lost, lonely or stuck.
I provide a warm welcome, somewhere for your voice to be heard and feelings expressed. I take time to learn about positive and negative elements of past and recent relationships. I will learn how experiences may have shaped you, how you think and feel about yourself and others. I show sincere interest in your needs! We can explore what you need more and less of in your life, work on improving communication skills, consider your hopes and goals for the future, improve self-care and help you become a better version of yourself.
It’s okay to talk about sensitive matters and issues you feel confused or embarrassed about. There can be moments of tearful release, real insight and even laughter too.
Seeking support shows commitment to personal growth.

Clients tell me they have felt understood and cared for, I hope to create the same experience for you.

I hold qualifications and I am accredited in the following areas:

  • University of Ulster Level 4 Certificate in Counselling
  • University of Ulster Foundation Degree in Counselling
  • Registered with and accredited by BACP
  • Certificate in Complex Trauma and Childhood Sexual Abuse
  • Mental Health First Aid
  • Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training
  • Knowledge of the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences
  • Extensive experience in crisis intervention, suicide prevention and supporting those bereaved by suicide
