Hello. My name is Laura and I am a person centred counsellor. I understand how daunting a task it can be looking for a counsellor so I appreciate you stopping by to have a look at my profile. I am a big believer that everyone can benefit from counselling no matter what it is you have going on in your life.
Sometimes you may have a specific issue, sometimes it is a general feeling and sometimes you may be coming to counselling as you are in a good place and finally feel strong enough to tackle the things that have been holding you back. For all of these and more, I am here to listen and sit alongside you as you figure it all out.
No-one knows your life better than you and a counsellor is no exception!
What I can do is offer you a warmly held space in which to explore all the things that are taking up room in your head. By being able to go at your own pace, you get to decide what you want to focus on and when it feels safe enough to explore the parts that hurt the most.
If after reading this profile you feel we could be a good fit then please don't hesitate to get in touch. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have. Counselling offers a wonderful space to be heard and to be held which can be truly transformative.

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.
