About me

Hi, I'm Laura, a BACP accredited counsellor, coach and personal development trainer, working with individuals and couples.

Is a difficult situation or someone getting you down?

Sometimes we have the confidence and clarity to make decisions and deal with disappointing or problematic situations. At other times we are distracted by our busy lives or unexpected events occur which can create confusion and fear, impacting on our self-esteem. This can often cause depression and anxiety, where we lose focus and need help to move forwards.

Clients come to me for counselling, often termed talking therapy, for support with a wide range of concerns such as depression, anxiety and stress, relationship issues, bereavement, abuse, infertility, work related issues, illness and life changes.

Let me support you in person, or via the telephone 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.

Clients say, being listened to 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
