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, trauma and relationships.

I offer an initial consultation of 30 minutes which is an opportunity for us to meet to see if we would be able to work together. At this initial meeting we will discuss what your goals are for therapy, everyone has different needs.

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 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. Counselling is not an easy process but it is worthwhile.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Foundation Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have worked with clients who have experienced Domestic Violence, Bereavement, Low Self-Esteem, 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 in the NHS who offer very short term therapy and I have helped clients to achieve a better mindset in 5 to 7 weeks of therapy. I have also worked in private organisations with clients who wish to undertake therapy to resolve deep rooted feelings and experiences that have affected them for many years.
