Louise-Street

Louise is an enthusiastic and friendly person who knows the importance on reducing tension and anxiety in order to restore well-being..

After 13 years, she has recently retired from providing holistic therapy treatments and is now spending time writing a book on how Arts Therapy can help develop an internal nurturing voice and change one’s sense of self.

Louise understands that being relaxed is essential to achieving a sense of well-being and for living life to the full. She knows, first-hand, that being in a constantly heightened state of tension and anxiety can lead to unhappiness and ill-health – disrupting communication and impairing relationships.

Her interest in holistic approaches began while still at school. She became open to different approaches to education where the happiness and welfare of children were as important as the content of the curriculum. At the same time Louise was also interested in both Eastern and Western ideas on maintaining good health and how Therapeutic Bodywork can reveal how it feels for us to be relaxed and in tune with ourselves so that we can breathe, stand and move freely.

After graduating from the University of Warwick Louise began a successful career in teaching, eventually heading a Learning Support Department for many years where she promoted and organised an Access for All policy. In 1997 she was awarded an MA in Education. Then an opportunity arose to train in Massage and Reflexology and Louise started to change her career path. She became a fully qualified and insured Complementary Therapist.

In 2008 Louise qualified in Facial Electrical treatments and the Beauty Specialists Diploma. Following further study Louise has now obtained an Advanced Diploma in the Therapeutic and Educational Application of the Arts and an IATE (Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education) Certificate in Counselling.
