Laura Herman BACP UKCP
As a professionally qualified and experienced psychotherapist BACP UKCP, I understand how difficult it can be choosing a therapist and what that choice depends on.
We all face our lives in our own unique way though there are themes that we all share at times, including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, parenting challenges, loss and bereavement, physical health, employment or lack of.
Our past impacts on our present and it can often be confusing and conflicting in our adult responses to current problems. When we cannot make sense of our own thoughts or responses, when our behaviour troubles us or is repetitive.
Within the therapeutic process, control is taken back and the symptomatic behaviour in time can be renegotiated and become less powerful.
If you would like to have a brief conversation on the phone, I am happy to arrange a mutually convenient time to discuss your needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the Westminster Pastoral Foundation and am a professionally qualified Psychodynamic Psychotherapist BACP UKCP.
I work extensively with adults, young people, families and couples and run parenting teenagers courses and workshops for parents negotiating the teenage years.
In addition I work with individuals and couples negotiating the emotional upheaval during the ante-natal and post-natal period.
Parenting and negotiating the teenage years is frequently a challenge and can be approached in a more helpful way with some thought and armed with some understanding of what to expect and not taking the behaviour personally.
For some people managing mental health concerns has been a long struggle. For others, periods of instability can arrive unexpectedly and without warning. It can be difficult to accept that help may be necessary.
