Your input is important to us. Please provide your valuable feedback. Here are some testimonials from our clients:

I first came to Louise with intrusive thoughts that honestly scared me. I remember having them about eight weeks after the birth of my son. I had big changes in my life as I had moved up from Cork to Dublin. My baby was only two and half weeks old when we made the move and I was also a new mother. I did not know anyone really. I had no friends up in Dublin so it was just my partner and myself. Horrible thoughts started to creep into my mind. It was not a pleasant time for me. I didn’t know what to do with these thoughts and thought I was such a horrible person for even thinking this way. I was so afraid of having post natal depression of getting it! It was genuinely one of my biggest fears while I was pregnant as my mother had it.

One night I was feeding my son I realised I had to do something about this, something about the way I was feeling. My anxiety was at a high. I found Louise’s web page and made contact. I schedule an appointment and it went from there.

When I first met Louise I was frightened,I didn’t know what to expect. I brought my baby with me and she welcomed me with a smile. Her voice so calming and listening to me intensively. I felt so much better after the appointment almost like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. A sense of relief! I didn’t want to go to a doctor as I didn’t want the medication route. I wanted to talk things through first and see where it went. I did not have the post natal depression I feared instead Anxiety and OCD.

Louise helped me through this much difficult time in my life. I am glad I went to see her and she rationalised my thoughts for me. I am very grateful to her.

Thank you Louise

When I initially visited Louise I was a broken person acting out my life rather than living. I’d become so overwhelmed with perfectionism, low self esteem and the need to be accepted I thought I was beyond help. Louise listened carefully and guided me on a path of self discovery and recovery and within a few months she turned my life around.
Not only is Louise an expert in multiple areas of psychology, she is warm and empathetic with an amazing ability to facilitate tailored self recovery rather than handing you ready made solutions. Going for counselling is never an easy decision but Louise’s abilities are such that I soon looked forward to the sessions rather than seeing them as a burden

I would like to thank you for the help and support I received from you over the last few months. I had spent some time in hospital and was in recovery from a severe bout of Depression/Anxiety. My family felt that I would benefit from your "Cognitive Behavioural Therapy” and so you were contacted. Indeed this was the case and I felt the benefit of your Counselling Sessions immediately. You helped me to understand the reason for my illness and in doing so my recovery was hastened. Best Regards Anne.

I came across Louise in a time of crisis and very calmly, quickly and sensitivity she identified the source of my issues and helped me to to understand what made me tick. Piece by piece over a few months she brought me through an incredible journey of self-awareness and helped me to develop a toolbox of skills to help me through any situation. It is almost a year now and I cannot thank Louise enough for the wonderful and fulfilling life she has helped me to see and experience again through her professional and caring skills. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Dear Louise,
Thank you for being present to me in the last five months. In that time I have come to know my emotions. This was made possible by your gentle and caring approach, which allowed me to be open and truthful. I have come to value and accept myself and for the first time in my life I see myself as a beautiful and wonderful creation of God! Thank you so much again!

Dear Louise,
I don't think I really understood how damaged our relationship was until we came to you for counselling. I'm not sure what might have happened but I now realise how deeply unhappy we both were. Pete's affair, whilst a terrible blow for me, threw us into your compassionate arms and what a blessing that was for us!
Via your gentle and wonderfully professional skills you guided us to a completely new place. You diagnosed our problems quickly and encouraged each of us to take responsibility for what had happened, but you did this without apportioning blame to either of us. We began meeting each others needs. Louise, our recovery can be attributed to your skills at leading us along this rocky road and we would not have gotten to where we are today without you,
many thanks and good wishes to you

After my husband and I separated, my son obviously found this extraordinarily difficult. As an only child he had nobody to confide in .. Louise was his ‘safe haven’ to discuss all of his worries and anguish. She became his voice and was able to explain to both of us as parents, what we needed to do to lessen the impact. She was able to also cover issues that we were unable to discuss with each other, given the emotionally charged situation we were in. With Louise’s fantastic support we were able to piece together new lives and living arrangements, which my son was able to understand and deal with. She made a huge difference and I will always be grateful!

I first came to Louise to help me with unhealthy intrusive thoughts that caused me much anxiety. I was lost in these unhealthy/untrue thoughts and had a habit of always picturing the worst case scenario when I really had nothing to be worrying about. ‘Disaster movie making’ as Louise referred to it.

Louise on presentation is warm, caring, kind and nurturing-exactly what every counsellor should be but not all possess these qualities. Louise helped me gain perspective on my thoughts that were causing me to be anxious and helped me develop tools in managing this.
At times, I continue to experience these but I know now how to manage these. The reassurance that Louise provided to me was so invaluable and exactly what I needed. Louise can work wonders over a very short number of sessions. Louise I am truly thankful to you!
