Laura Duffy Ad Dip PC, Dip Hyp
Hi, my name is Laura and I started my practice in 2014. My passion is helping people who suffer with depression and anxiety, having personal experience with both. I enjoy finding new and creative ways of helping people to find their happiness and be at one with themselves. We are all different and as such all need a different approach, we are not broken and certainly do not need fixing.
We can all at some point need someone to talk to about an imbalance in our lives and by using various techniques proven to be effective you will be able to find that balance and achieve the life you want to live not only now but also in the future.
I offer various tools & techniques tailored to you from Counselling & Psychotherapy. I am also an experienced Hypnotherapist & EFT Practitioner, whilst these therapies may not be for you there are certainly tools we can borrow from them such as calming & visualisation techniques which work great on anxiety, building confidence & self-esteem. I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and adhere to there ethical frameworks. To find out more about this please visit their website on www.nationalcounsellingsociety.org
Taking the first step of looking for help is often the hardest, as a society we often wait until we feel bad enough to go for therapy. The test to assessing if we need help is are we happy? if the answer is no then we need to change something in our lives. If you feel that there is something holding you back from being happy then why not get in touch today?
