Hi, I'm Louis 👋

I am a friendly and approachable person who enjoys listening and talking to others.  People are unique in the way they think and act, and our ongoing experiences and memories are important and shape our world. 

I have a holistic approach in counselling and do not use set formulas in dealing with upset feelings or emotions, as there are many factors involved that could cause distress. 


Let’s talk and determine how I can assist you in living your best life.
