About me

Hi I'm Laura a BACP Senior Accredited and registered counsellor and coach, working with individuals and couples.

Clients come to me for counselling, often termed talking therapy, for both a short period of time (often 6-8 weeks) or for a number of years, for support with a wide range of concerns such as depression, anxiety and stress, relationship and childhood issues, bereavement, abuse, infertility, work related issues, illness and life changes.

Let me support you as we work towards you feeling happier, gaining confidence and changing your situation. We can also work together to explore and help you understand why you felt challenged, to reduce the impact and the chance of the same problems repeating themselves.

I work with each client on an individual level using therapies which best suit their personality and the issues they wish to explore. These may include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, Person Centred approach (PCA) and Transactional Analysis (TA).

Which ever interventions I use, clients say that being listened to and able to talk in a confidential, warm, trusting environment and encouraged to challenge their thinking has really helped them.

I appreciate that many people have no experience of counselling and may feel anxious as to what to expect, or unsure if they are ready to take that step. I am happy to speak with you to answer any questions you may have to help ease your concerns and to arrange a counselling assessment appointment.

Please call me on 07581 183994.


Relationship Counselling

Helping couples who are struggling in relationship or separated, work colleagues and friends with discord etc. to communicate more effectively, by providing a safe space for them to share their thoughts and feelings. Through this, couples are more able to learn from one another and understand where their relationship breakdown has occurred.

The next stage of relationship counselling is then on supporting couples to work together towards moving forwards, with confidence, in the direction that they choose.

I offer support for:-

  • Same gender partnerships
  • Heterosexual relationships
  • Married couples
  • Partnerships
  • Family issues
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Work colleagues conflicts

Best Wishes
Laura
