About Louise

portrait - CopyLouise Hargreaves BSc. Hons. Occupational Therapy, PG Dip. Counselling and Psychotherapy,
Cert. Usui Teate Reiki Teacher/Practitioner, Cert. Life Alignment Practitioner and  Practitioner Member of the Metamorphic Association.

My Passion: Underpinning my own growth as a human being, and my work as a practitioner, is the enquiry and exploration of the mystery and true nature of human beings, health and transformation.  I believe the ‘right’ environment can facilitate growth, wellness and wholeness on all levels.  I am committed to creating a space that supports this process. It is always a privilege to be part of someone’s healing process.

Inspirations and Influences: nature, walking, mountains, travel, non-duality, yoga, tai chi, qigong, meditation, photography, music, human biology, psychology, quantum physics, metaphysics, occupational science, epigenetics, spirituality.

Origins:
My career began in 1995 as an Occupational Therapist in the NHS, specialising in mental health, and going on to qualify in Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy.  I left the NHS in 2005 and my work rapidly expanded into the world of vibrational and energy medicine.  I have always had a deep curiosity and awe of human beings and the healing process.  This began with the innate desire to bring balance and peace to my own being, so that I could be more available to help others on their journey.  The experience of living through and recovering from various challenging life experiences is far from easy, but can bring  freedom and peace to one’s soul.

Today: I have over 20 years combined experience in both mental health practice and energy work.  I am fully insured to practise.  Based in Derby, East Midlands, I work with people locally, nationally and internationally.  I am certified and insured to: practise Life AlignmentMetamorphic Technique and teach and practice  Usui Teate Reiki.  I am also a practitioner member of the Metamorphic Association and the Life Alignment Association.
