Laura Diiorio, BSc, Dip Couns, MBACP
I am a qualified therapist and practice an integrative approach to counselling and psychotherapy. The desire to help people make changes in order to lead a more fulfilled life led me to want to train as a counsellor.
As an integrative therapist I utilise a number of psychotherapy models which emphasize different dimensions of the human experience.
My practice is informed by theories of attachment, CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), psycho –dynamic and humanistic therapies.
If you feel that you would like to find out more information on whether counselling is right for you, please email me and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Training, qualifications & experience
My training has spanned more than six years and incorporated hundreds of hours of academic and experiential learning, supervised practice, research and personal development.
I bring to my work experience of mental health problems, recovery and the power of healing relationships. I place a great importance on building a relationship with the individual, exploring whatever is most important to you.
I believe that the answers to whatever questions you are asking come from within you, at a mind, body and spirit level.
I hold a Diploma in Counselling from the Minster Centre in London, the UK’s leading training institute for integrative psychotherapy and counselling.
I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by their ethical frameworks BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I am committed to my personal and professional integration engaging with reflective practice, supervision and regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
