"Happiness is not something ready made, it comes from your own actions" Dalai Lama XVI"

Counsellor GoreyMy name is Louise Reddin and I am a Psychotherapist based in Gorey Co. Wexford. I hold a BA in Counselling, Psychotherapy and Psychometric Testing and a BA Hons in Counselling and Psychotherapy studies. I have a background in Business, and working with adolescents with behavioural and intellectual difficulties (for which I hold a Cert and a Diploma).

I now work as a therapist in private practice, and thoroughly enjoy my work. I see clients ranging in ages from about 13 years old and upwards. Many of my clients would have issues like depression, anxiety, suicide, loss and bereavement, couple relationship issues, and relationships between parents and adolescents, sexuality issues, people who have been bullied and those who bully.

a Person Centred Therapist

I also carry out occupational assessments and personality assessments. I am a Person Centred Therapist and person centered therapy is the basis for which the other approaches I use are built upon. Person Centered Therapy is when the therapist shows the person sitting opposite them Unconditional Respect, Genuineness (being as real as I can be), and to be  Empathic to clients , to try and gain a deeper understanding as to what’s going on for them and what has led them to therapy. It’s a non-directive approach meaning it is very gentle and we only go at a pace that is comfortable to the client.

Another approach I use is CBT, Cognitive behavioural therapy; this is a very popular approach at present. CBT helps clients to change the way they think of the world or change how they view themselves, which can sometimes be quite negative. The goal is to change these unhelpful thoughts into more positive thoughts that go on to make changes in their behaviour. If we think we are sad, then our behaviour will be sad, if we think we are anxious then our behaviour will match this feeling and will be anxious too. Our feelings, thoughts and behaviours and all interlinked so you can see how CBT is very helpful for clients that seek change. I find CBT techniques very helpful for Anxiety, Depression and Panic.

Other approaches I use are, Gestalt Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Choice Theory Therapy and Transactional Analysis.

As part of my ongoing accreditation I complete Continuous Professional Development workshops and lectures throughout the year.
