Louise Atkinson is registered with the Australian Counselling Association. She understands that life can become challenging and that sometimes you might need help to find your way.
The natural empathy and caring nature of Louise combined with her extensive knowledge and experience in life and ongoing professional training lands her in a unique and beneficial position to help you through challenging periods.
Louise is trained to facilitate trauma, PTSD, and anxiety challenges, helping individuals to discover coping mechanisms to manage those difficult issues. When you start to become more aware of the tiniest early warning sensations you will become better versed in managing the intensity of your feelings.
The more aware that you become of your truth the more choice that you will have over your decisions in the present and in the future. You will become more aware of your true self. Louise specialises in working with teenagers and women, helping them to improve their self-esteem, awareness, and assertion skills. Two therapy areas are available for your choosing, one is in a traditional sense inside with air-conditioning, whilst the other is outdoors surrounded by nature.
QA special method of counselling is also available
Louise can also provide Equine Assisted Counselling and Learning sessions (EAC/EAL), whereby horses help her in working with clients to address their issues. This is an alternative to traditional counselling, especially when regular counselling is not working as effectively as desired.
