About me

Hi, I am Laura, thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I am a fully qualified person-centred counsellor. I work with individuals on issues such as anxiety management, depression, low self-esteem and bereavement

I offer a free 30 minute no obligation consultation which is an opportunity for you to meet with me to see if you feel comfortable talking to me.

I provide non-judgemental counselling in a safe warm environment where your feelings can be expressed freely.  I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework.

Accessing counselling is a big step that takes courage and a commitment to yourself. I want to help you build on that first step to enable you to change the things you are unhappy with and accept the things that you cannot change.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Foundation Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have worked with clients who have experienced Domestic Violence, Bereavement, Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Relationship Breakdowns and Loneliness.

I have worked with clients of all ages and backgrounds on a variety of issues. I have worked with short and long term therapy and I have helped clients to achieve a better mindset in 5 to 7 weeks of therapy. I am very experienced in bereavement counselling and have worked with people who have experienced bereavement both very recently and many years ago who have previously struggled with their grief.
