About me

I am Laura, a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist.  This means that I tend to work long term with clients to get to the root cause of your issue.

Sometimes in life you may experience difficulties that feel too much, too stressful or anxiety provoking, to cope with alone.  You may feel depressed, stuck and even overwhelmed.  It may become apparent that you need professional support in the way of psychotherapy to make sense of what is happening and how to find a way out.

I offer a confidential and non-judgemental space for you to work through and explore difficult feelings.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Higher Education Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling & Psychotherapy
  • NLP Therapist and trainer
  • Life Coach

I am a registered member of the BACP - British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their code of ethics and practice. I maintain an up to date professional indemnity insurance with a reputable insurer.

Having previously worked at The Priory I am experienced at working with a variety of symptoms and concerns including addictions, relationships, eating disorder, personality disorder, OCD and self harm.  I trained at The University Of Greenwich in a psychodynamic modality and am regulated by the BACP.

I currently work at The Surrey Centre for eating disorder and in private practice.  I have worked for a number of charities including Croydon Pastoral Foundation, Richmond Counselling and Psychotherapy Services and The Samaritans.

I am committed to personal supervision and continuous professional development, maintaining an average of 30 hours additional study each year.

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.

Additional information

Our first session together is called an assessment and aims to understand further what has led you to seek therapeutic treatment.  Assessments last 55 minutes and should help you decide whether you want to pursue therapy further and if I am the right therapist for you.  If at this stage you choose to continue I will give you a contract to take home and consider and we will set up regular weekly slots.

  • Assessment 55 minutes: £75

Wheelchair user access

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.
