Laura Green PGDip, MBACP
Are you experiencing some difficult emotions at the moment? Feeling depressed, stressed or anxious? Perhaps something has happened in your life and you need to talk to someone about it. Or maybe you've been feeling this way for a while and don't know why. Well, you've taken that all important first step of seeking support.
I am a BACP registered counsellor offering face to face weekly therapy sessions where you can explore your feelings in a non-judgemental, safe and confidential space.
I specialise in working with loss in all its many forms. If you have recently experienced a bereavement, I can support you through this painful and confusing time of life. Or maybe yours is a loss of a different kind- a job, a relationship, a home, security. Whatever it may be, I understand that it takes time to process the emotions that accompany loss and will work with you at your own pace.
During sessions, you will have the opportunity to work creatively with art materials, but only if you want to. I also incorporate mindfulness into sessions, if this is something you are interested in.
As a person-centred counsellor, I work to help you feel empowered, believing that you have within yourself the resources necessary for growth.

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, I will get back to you as soon as possible.
We can then arrange a half-hour, free, informal meeting at the lovely, peaceful wellbeing clinic where I work. Here we can find out a bit more about each other and decide whether to book in some 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.
