The Calming Quarter

About me

Hello, my names Laura. Thank you for taking the time to view my page.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, frustrated or sad? Nestled in the heart of the cathedral quarter Derby, you will find a spa for your mind. A place to quieten the mind, relax, unwind and be listened to. Somewhere that you can just be you, understand your thoughts and feelings and develop tools to enable you to deal with life’s challenges. The Calming Quarter offers psychotherapy, counselling and hypnotherapy and a place to listen to your needs without the endless noise of modern day life. Together we will help to achieve your goals. We offer help with anxiety, relationships issues, self-esteem, depression, trauma, and grief.

I believe that everyone is wonderfully different, therefore therapy should be just as unique. I am an integrative counsellor which means I can tailor different types of therapy to suit you and what would be most helpful to your needs right now. Throughout therapy I will offer a warm and open relationship where you can expect honesty without judgement you will be heard, whilst being given a safe space to explore what has brought you to therapy, we work together to gain the tools to navigate your emotions and stresses within this crazy world.

The Calming Quarter sits in the heart of the cathedral quarter of Derby where you can access long or short term counselling, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy.
