Louise Shuttleworth

Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist

Louise has been working with children, young people and families in a therapeutic capacity for over twenty-five years.  Her early passion for therapy was ignited while working in a project called ‘Teens and Toddlers’; a London based project set up in 2008 to support adolescent who were struggling in school.

Since relocating to Sussex, Louise has worked across diverse therapeutic settings including GP practices, family centres for 12-19yrs olds, YMCA Dialogue services and residential care.  With a special interest in attachment-focused therapeutic work, Louise also specialises in working with couples as well as adults who have traumatic experiences.

Louise has extensive experience working across a spectrum of psychological and emotional difficulties from various forms of emotional distress through to early developmental trauma.  She is especially interested in working to promote an understanding of the unfolding implications of early life adversity on children and young people in her work, particularly in relation to attachment.  Louise priorities working in partnership with parents to encourage and empower them to be an integral part of the healing and recovery.

Louise describes herself as integrating theoretical knowledge with a relation approach but sprinkled with a dash of humour.  She is trained in a range of therapeutic modalities and has undertaken specialist training in Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and is currently working towards practitioner status.  More recently, she also recently completed Theraplay (level 1 & 2) alongside EMDR (levels 1, 2 and 3). Louise believes attachment-focussed work has offered her a rich portfolio of practical skills that she can weave into her work to positively support the children, young people and families that she works with in ways that are truly empowering and healing.

Louise is a UKCP registered Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor.
