About Louise

Why choose Louise as your therapist?

Choosing a therapist is a personal thing and you need to find someone you feel comfortable working with. I have written a free e-book about how to find your perfect therapist, which you can find in my shop. Other points you may want to know about me include: 

  • I have owned Therapy Centre since 2014. The clinic provides a professional, relaxed and confidential environment  
  • I’m fully qualified in my disciplines and carry out Continuing Professional Development each year. This means I’m always learning and adding to my toolkit
  • Before your first appointment you’ll be asked to complete a consultation form. This is so I know about potential areas of focus, your medication and anything else you think I should know 
  • There is a consultation at your first appointment. During future appointments we include a short update at the beginning, so your therapy session is tailored to you 
  • I started my business January 2006 and became full time in 2008. This means I’m an experienced therapist with a working knowledge of numerous conditions
  • I try to walk my talk. You can always ask about my last therapy session and what self care I’m doing
  • If you become a regular client you’ll enjoy 6th session discounts and referral discounts. If you decide you want to block book and pay for 5, you’ll also get one free 
  • I have experience of working with complex needs clients. Since 2014 I’ve been providing therapies to disabled residents at a care home
  • From 2013 I’ve been regularly teaching baby massage for a local council within their Childrens’ centres 
  • Between 2016 and 2020 I worked with a charity offering therapies to new mums and mums-to-be who are experiencing mental health issues. This, and other situations, has helped me have an awareness of numerous mental health conditions

None of the therapies available claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe. Only doctors can provide a diagnosis and if you have any health concerns you should visit your GP first.
Complementary therapies should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice

My background

I Louise Morganam originally from South Wales (a small place called Garndiffaith, which very few people have heard of!) I then studied at University of Wales, Trinity College Carmarthen where I graduated with a BA (Hons) Humanities – major in Religious Studies and minor in English Literature. Once graduating, I moved to Bristol with the intention of beginning an M.A in Contemporary Theology, but became side-tracked when I began to earn money. I worked in two temporary positions, each for a year, before beginning a career with a global company. I worked in the financial services industry for almost ten years, moving departments every 2 years or so. 

How I began my therapy journey

As I approached a 0 birthday, I realised I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life working in an office. In 2004 I began an 18month training course in aromatherapy and massage. I continued this course while working full time, completing case studies and coursework in the evenings and on weekends. 

After my initial aromatherapy and massage training I then completed a course in Indian head massage. I then continued with a 12month course in reflexology and my Reiki 1 and 2. I began my business on a part time basis in January 2006. 

How my business developed

After the birth of my first son in 2007 I left my corporate career to pursue my complementary therapies. I had enjoyed attending baby massage classes and loved them so much that in 2008 I trained to baby massage instructor, so I could introduce other parents to this fun and special time with their baby. In 2013 I was approached by North Somerset council to facilitate baby massage groups at their childrens’ centres. I took a break during the covid pandemic, but have returned to offer regular groups within their venues. I also offer private massage group classes, individual instruction to parents, and have created an online course for parents who are unable to attend a baby massage course in person.   

Between 2009 and 2012 I volunteered at a local hospice, as a therapist, which gave me experience of dealing with people experiencing palliative care. My time spent volunteering means I am confident in working with people who have conditions such as cancer. Since September 2014 I have been working with disabled clients several times a week within a nursing home environment, which has meant I need to be flexible with providing therapy sessions and learning non-verbal cues. In June 2014 I took the keys to my own clinic space in South Bristol, kinsaletherapycentre.co.uk. Between 2016 until the start of the pandemic, I provided therapies for a charity which helps mums and mums to be who are managing post natal depression and other mental health issues. 

My work today

Currently my working week involves seeing private clients at my clinic, Therapy Centre. I also attend the care home twice a week and each term run a baby massage group.

As a professional therapist I undertake Continuing Professional Development in accordance with my membership bodies, the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists, the Association of Reflexologists and the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
