About Louise

I have been practicing Gestalt psychotherapy since 2001. I originally trained with the Edinburgh Gestalt Institute, and then continued my professional development with the Gestalt Associates Training Los Angles (GATLA) and completed their accreditation process.

In addition to working in private practice, I have done some short-term Employer Assisted Counselling, and run a therapy group at one of the local universities in Edinburgh. I was part of the team that set up Trauma Training Edinburgh, a group that offers training about working with people who have experienced trauma and loss. I have worked at a counselling service for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and volunteered as a counsellor and supervisor at a bereavement agency.

I am an Argentine tango dancer and teacher, and I am the founder of the Queer Tango Edinburgh community.
