About me

Hello, I'm Laura. I'm 35 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
  • Creative therapies for adults and children
  • Yoga 1:1 sessions for children and teens

The space I provide is a delicate balance of sensitive listening and authentic presence. I am flexible in my approach, which naturally differs from person to person.

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
  • 1:1 and group work in various local high schools through Nature & Nurture therapies.

The counselling

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.

Creative therapies

As a creative person, I know first hand the benefits of expressing things through a creative medium. We can work together creatively to make sense of what you are going through / feel stuck on. Creative ways of working can include using paints, spider diagrams, objects, charcoal, figurines, sand tray etc.
