Laura Mayhew MBACP (Accred) PG Cert Supervision
Radway Green Business Centre
As your counsellor, what could I offer you?
I offer a caring, respectful, sensitive and non-judgemental counselling service that can help you through a difficult period of your life. Counselling offers the chance to talk things through, in confidence, so that with support you can work out the best way forward for you.
My background is in nursing and midwifery and I have worked for both the NHS and the not for profit sector. I have many years of experience of supporting individuals and couples with anxiety and depression, addiction problems, relationship issues, work related stress and burnout, bereavement, spirituality, sexuality/gender and self/identity issues.
Each client I work with is unique and as such counselling is tailored to individual need. Some clients will need only one or two sessions to help whereas others may prefer to work over a longer time frame.
How do we start?
Your first session is a "getting to know you" session. This gives you the opportunity to consider whether we can work together. It is important for you to feel comfortable with your counsellor and to feel you have the space and support you require in order to address the concerns that are distressing you.
Your Counselling Session
Counselling sessions last for one hour.
As you counsellor, I will review your needs with you so that we can jointly assess progress and what further action, if any, may be needed.
