About Curiosity Spot

Curiosity Spot was imagined following a conference I attended on compassionate approaches to mental health. I was struck by how constrained I could be by systems that were concerned with outcomes and measures more than the needs of the individuals we worked with. I wanted to create a safe space for people to explore their thoughts and emotions without judgement and in the way that is right for them.

Curiosity Spot is a safe space where clients can cultivate an attitude of curiosity without judgement or expectation of what the answers should be, a space where ideas and understanding emerge from the experience.


About Louise

laughing with elements.jpg

I have spent time working for a range of charities and social enterprises, as well as working in university student support as a Disability Advisor, a Specialist Mentor and a Student Wellbeing Advisor for nearly ten years. During that time I qualified as a Counsellor and obtained a MSc in Psychotherapeutic Counselling in 2016. I now work as a Mental Health Trainer in the voluntary sector, alongside my private work.

I am an integrative counsellor, my training covered a range of modalities including person centred, systemic, psychodynamic and CBT. I have also attended additional training on compassion focused therapy and solution focused, brief therapy. I have a keen interest in the use of creative expressions in therapy, both with adults and young people, and wrote my masters dissertation on this topic. This can include using objects, images or words to explore topics and feelings where words may not be enough.
