S. Lauenna Luddington, MBACP Adv.Dip.Couns - Adult and adolescent counsellor
I am counsellor working with adults and young people in Bristol. I have a constructive approach where we work together to gain insight but also take practical steps to make the changes you want to see. I have supported clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, relationship problems, panic, bereavement, isolation, coping with crises, low self esteem, CFS and many other issues.
I have a particular interest in working with students and adolescents. I have supported students with many of the issues mentioned above as well as exam and social anxiety, presentation and interview skills, time and energy management, revision techniques and exam strategy. I am passionate about supporting students through their difficulties, their studies and on to a more resilient future.
My approach is integrative, combining various therapeutic models depending on what comes up for each individual and may aid the development of new perspectives and strengthen inner resources. I may draw from techniques from cognitive, behavioural or mindfulness approaches, transactional analysis, focusing, compassion focused therapy and more.
