About me

Are you struggling with anxiety?

I specialise in working with anxiety and panic attacks and having lived with anxiety myself for many years, and now being in control of my anxiety, I understand what you are going through.

I understand how anxiety can be accompanied by constant uncomfortable physical feelings and emotional and mental agitation..

Your anxiety experience will be individual to you, so we will work together to uncover what is causing you anxiety and the best approach to help you reduce your feelings of anxiety.

Talking about your anxiety, and what causes it, helps to reduce your symptoms and stop your panic attacks, helping you lead a more relaxed life.

By helping you  understand your anxiety better, why anxiety may have become part of your life, and how your thoughts and behaviors may be contributing to your feelings of anxiety, I help you find ways to live a relaxed, calmer life, through a combination of talking therapy and CBT

A past client wrote this review

Counselling with Laura helped me move from a place of negative anxiety and depression, that would stop me from putting myself in social situations, to a place where I feel confident and can manage my anxiety

I am aware it can be difficult for you to know if counselling will be helpful to you at this moment in time, let me re-assure you whatever your problem, talking to someone about it will offer real relief.

I offer your 1st session at £25, for 50 minutes, so we can discuss how I might be able to help and for you to ask any questions you have. You can then decide if counselling is right for you.

I have a relaxed way of working and it is important to me that you feel comfortable to share your troubles so that together we can find a way to make things better for you.

I have a lovely bright, comfortable room in Parkstone, Poole where you will feel safe and relaxed.

If you are looking for a friendly and effective counsellor than please call me to discuss how I can help you.

Ring me any time on 07975 733029 or E-Mail laura@seeclearcounselling,co.uk to find out more.


The first session is £25, this allows you to meet me and decide if I can offer you what will help you make the changes you feel you need in life.

Were you a victim of Childhood abuse?

Being a victim of childhood abuse whether it be physical, mental or emotional often means you are, even now, on constant high alert for the danger around you and this leads to anxiety and panic.

Exploring past trauma and finding ways to cope with life better,can be extremely difficult. I understand this, but I am here to be by your side and help you cope with those difficult feelings and memories.

I will always work at your pace, this is very important for you and for me.

If this is something that troubles you, you can be assured of an understanding & confidential environment to talk about this and through the work we do together you will find a way to manage your fears, reduce your anxiety and stop your panic attacks.

Can you afford Counselling?

I believe counselling should be available to everyone. Please do not let cost be a barrier to you accessing counselling when you need it most, I can offer reduced rates so please do ask.

Your 1st session is at the reduced rate of £25.

Thereafter a 50 minute session will usually be £50.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Fees

My standard session fee is £40.

The 1st session is at the reduced cost of £20

On line video or telephone counselling may be a good option for you in this current climate, I am experienced in offering this option to you.

However, I believe Counselling should be available to everyone and cost should not be a barrier to you being able to access Counselling.

I, therefore, offer a sliding scale depending on your circumstances, which we discuss at your  Introductory session.

I also offer a discount for block bookings as attending counselling on a weekly basis is shown to be more beneficial.

If you are a trainee counsellor call me to discuss my discounted rates for students.

  • Keyworkers
  • Low income
  • Trainee counsellors

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
