LOUISE WILBY

Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist | Head of Child & Family Services

Louise is a Child and Adolescent Psychodynamic Psychotherapist working with Children, Young People and Families. She has a postgraduate certificate in Child, adolescent and family mental wellbeing and an MA in Psychological therapies with children, young people, and families.

Louise works therapeutically with Children, adolescents, parents, and families and also offers parent-infant work, offering therapeutic support for a wide range of issues including low self-esteem, anxiety, low mood, depression, self-harm, emotional regulation difficulties (anger), abuse, trauma and much more.

She creates a safe space that helps members of a family to understand themselves, each other, and the family dynamics better, to change negative behaviours and resolve conflict. Louise gives families the chance to explore their feelings in a safe, non-judgemental environment and endeavours to help families move out of old, unhelpful patterns, and create new ones, together.

Louise can also offer educational consultancy. She has extensive experience supporting Children with social, emotional, and mental health (SEMH) difficulties, having worked primarily as a primary school teacher and then as a specialist teacher for children with SEMH needs for 12 years. Having this educational background gives invaluable knowledge and insight into schools and how to support children in schools.

‘I am passionate about the work that I do and the people I work with. I enjoy working with children and families to help them learn and grow and be a part of that positive change process. I also continually learn and grow as a result. Providing a containing environment for my clients, where they feel safe and supported, in their often difficult journeys, underpins all of my work.'
