Get in Touch

Contact Louise via:

E-mail: louisedeacon@protonmail.com

Phone number: 07917 610834

When you get in touch Louise will carry out an initial free phone call. If she feels she is likely to be of help, she will carry out an assessment in a non-judgmental and supportive manner. The assessment will include a discussion of the treatment options. If she feels your needs will be better served by a different expert she will help you to find one.

Appointments

Louise provides clinical sessions in Quarry Street, central Guildford, close to the High Street and train station. She also holds sessions in Hindhead.

Some evening appointments are available. Appointments via Skype are also possible.

What happens when you see a Clinical Psychologist?

The variety of different types of therapists can be confusing but, as the British Psychological Society says, “The title of Chartered Psychologist is legally recognized and reflects only the highest standard of psychological knowledge and expertise”. Louise will only draw from approaches for which there are evidence and will make reference to national guidelines and research.

Louise’s approach is to use active, structured techniques grounded in psychological research.  Your sessions will involve practical approaches as well as talking about issues in a supportive environment. The aim is to improve the problem in the fewest sessions possible.
