Laura Green - Bereavement and Loss Counsellor
Hello, I am Laura and I am a qualified and fully insured counsellor, with experience of working with bereaved clients and those suffering from loss in all forms.
While my specialism is loss and bereavement, I do work with a whole range of issues, such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, low-self esteem and stress.
My aim is to help you to feel empowered by providing a safe, non-judgemental space where you can explore your emotions at your own pace. I am offering video counselling sessions via Zoom, or telephone counselling.
Have you experienced a loss in your life? Maybe you've had a bereavement due to Covid-19, or other causes. Or perhaps you've lost a job, relationship, pet or sense of identity/security. Loss can bring many difficult and confusing emotions.
Talking to someone outside of your family or friendship group can really help you make sense of things and find your way again. There is no right or wrong way to feel. We all respond in our own individual way to events that happen in life. As such, I aim to listen and try to understand what things are like for you.
Getting in touch
Contacting a counsellor can be a big step, but a really important one too. Of course, you want to find the right therapist for you - someone you can trust and be yourself with. Therefore, I would like to welcome you to get in touch with me today. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have about counselling and working with me.
Please call or text me on 07890641077 or click here to send me an email.
We are all unique individuals, and I try to cater for this in the way I work. For instance, you may like to communicate through art or writing. I also incorporate mindfulness and breathing exercises into sessions, if this is something you are interested in.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

So, you're interested but not sure what to expect? Here's what you can do today:
Get in touch- drop me a quick email or call me. If I don't answer, leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation where we can discuss what you're looking for from counselling, and you can ask any further questions, before deciding whether to go ahead and book sessions.
Full sessions are 50 minutes to one hour long, and ideally, take place on a weekly basis. There is no set number of sessions- we work at your pace.
