About me

Hello, I'm Laura. I'm 33 and I live in the Lowestoft area.

The counselling I offer is about working together. We will find new ways forward, so you feel less alone in whatever it is you're going through.

Whilst I have seen many clients with different concerns I specialise in the following areas;

  • anxiety
  • walking and reflective therapy in nature

A little about Me

After experiencing depression and anxiety I became a client, over 10 years ago now. My own recovery inspired me to become a counsellor to have the chance to help others, like yourself.

As well as private practice I work as a

  • School counsellor at St.Nicholas Priory C.E V.A. Primary School
  • Co-facilitator at Great Yarmouth College on the Counselling degree

The counselling

I work to create an environment in which you, the client, will feel free to be yourself by;

  • saying the things you need to say
  • facing the fears you want to face
  • having the time to heal from the experiences that are etched in your mind

I've worked with a wide range of clients and have experience of knowing what works well. My counselling style will be influenced by who you are and what you are experiencing. I can offer techniques for anxiety and stress reduction if appropriate.

Walking and reflective therapy in nature

Being in nature has proven to have many physical and psychological benefits.

It helps us to be present and feel connected with the World around us. Natural spaces have a calming effect on us, this allows a 'slowing down' which can offer reflection of our feelings and thoughts.

We can use the natural resources we find to help make connections to how you may be feeling, sometimes feelings can be more easily expressed through metaphors and the things we see around us. We can walk slowly and can choose to sit if you would prefer.

I offer sessions on the beach in Pakefield, at Gunton woods and at Carlton Marshes, if you live a little further away we can find somewhere that suits us both.
