Louise Jansz

Psychotherapist, Counsellor

Fourfold Therapy

Heart and soul are as important as your body and mind. I use dynamic, Process-Oriented Psychology and Brainspotting tools blended in with a trauma-informed, client-centred, integrative approach that nods to the transpersonal, including Steiner, Jungian and Taoism. My client's unique sense of meaning, intuition and outlook are central to my approach.

    10 Questions with Louise Jansz

    • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

    • A lifelong quest to understand the ways people develop meaning and purpose in their lives for enrichment and as a consequence discover unique ways to live beyond the material and superficial attributes that society's systems can unwittingly enforce upon us. I am particularly passionate about infusing the physiological with our emotional wellbeing.
    • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

    • So many, and always more emerging!! My main influences have been Jung and Steiner as first generation thinkers, leading on to Arny and Amy Mindell's process oriented approach, Ken Wilber's linking to quantum physics and the holographic nature of things, plus ancient the influence of the Tao and nature, shamanism and myths also come into my work.
      From a practical and perspective I work in a trauma informed, embodied, parts aware way, influenced by practitioners David Grand, David Schwartz, Jenina Fisher, Bessel Van Der Kolk, Pat Ogden, David Levine and Gabor Mate to name a few.
      However my biggest influence are my clients who I am continually humbled and grateful for and proud of. They allow me the honour and the art of synergising my practice as a counsellor. My work is fusion of knowledge built on over my lifetime and continually evolves, however my clients are integral to my development. They continually teach me that they have all they need within and I am a guide.
    • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

    • I am very interested in helping clients navigate big life transitions that seem overwhelming. Job Loss, relationship breakdown and grief are all areas of interest for me as well as addictive tendencies, depression and anxiety.
    • What method/s do you use?

    • Process Oriented Psychology
      Attachment / relational approach
      Brainspotting
      Person Centred
      Trauma-informed
      Embodied mindfulness
      Parts aware
      Polyvagal theory
      Life Myth
    • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

    • It is different for each client. It will depend on the outcomes the clients are looking for. Some will require longer term support and others only need a couple of sessions to get over a speed bump. Clients will start to know which category they fall in after 1-3 sessions.
    • How has therapy made you a better person?

    • Of course! It is very humbling to bear witness and I understand rank and privilege in our society in a deeper way.
    • What do you like most about being a therapist?

    • Aside from being inspired by client courage, I like working in a calm and thoughtful environment. I genuinely have a passion for my work and enjoy learning in a holistic way. I don't have to separate my life into segments of work and personal, they are congruent with each other.
    • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

    • Yes of course! Being a therapist doesn't mean I have perfected anything! While I do come to work very regulated, I am also having human experiences in my life. I live a numinous life, meaning I aspire to keep reaching, evolving, moving forward and this also means I respect cycles - we won't always be expanding - sometimes we are devolving in order to learn something different.
    • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

    • We all face different problems but generally I think not living in an authentic, integrated way creates a lot of suffering. I would like to see a fuller sense of community outside our workplaces and techno devices. We need to interact with a diverse range of people or we can become polarised by default.
    • Can you share the name of a book, film, song, event or work of art that inspires you?

    • I will have to come back to this question so I'll share one of each:

      Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinko Estes (also a book for men btw!)
      Apocalypse Now (l love war movies)
      Lovely Day - Bill Withers
      Anything where people hit the streets in solidarity for change or celebration - Me Too; collapse of the Berlin Wall, VE Day 1945, Pride etc.
      The Scream by Munch (we all had to paint a version in high school and it has always stayed with me)
