About

Louise Baya

I'm a person-centered counsellor working in private practice based in Leamington Spa, Rugby and Warwick. I'm an experienced and fully qualified counsellor who is a registered BACP member. I found my own personal experience of therapy to be life changing, which led me to want help others. Prior to my counselling career, I  have worked for many years with children, young people, families and vulnerable adults. I supported and assisted individuals to improve their mental, physical well-being and to live independently.

I gained my counselling degree at University of Warwick. I have experience of working with addiction, bereavement, loss, sexual abuse, self -esteem, trauma  amongst a variety of other issues. 

I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and safe space for you to explore and reflect on any issues. I understand that being accepted and valued as you, is helpful for personal understanding and growth. Taking the first step and seeking help can feel difficult but I will be along side you during this challenging time.
