Laura Lonsdale MBACP - Online & Face to Face Psychotherapist & Counsellor
I am a qualified and experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor currently working online offering short and long term therapy. I am able to help clients with a wide range of issues including, but not limited to, Depression, Anxiety, Bereavement, Relationship problems and Low self-esteem.
I believe if you can trust someone with your thoughts and feelings, you are able to explore different ways of looking at them and accepting things you can't change.
Talking to someone outside your family is also helpful and I work individually according to your needs with patience and understanding. No problem is too small to discuss. I work on zoom or telephone, so do feel free to book your first session.
"Laura, words cannot express how grateful I am for your time, wisdom and encouragement this past year. Thank you."
I believe that being understood and heard is important to recovery and shifts how we feel about ourselves. Clients often remark on my positive energy as we explore things and build a trusting and healing relationship.
What are the benefits of online therapy?
This way of accessing therapy is working well and you can book times to suit you, and make time for yourself. It is more flexible with appointments though the time frame of sessions is the same as face to face. There are no travel costs involved and you can work from the comfort of your home or office, or wherever is convenient.
How to start your sessions
Getting started is very easy, just call me on 07778 005951 or click here to send me an email. We can discuss timings and any questions you may have about counselling and then if you are happy to proceed, we can book an appointment.
Sessions last 50 minutes, the same as a face to face session. On the initial consultation, we discuss what you would like to explore and what brings you to therapy, see how you feel talking with me and then going forward, plan to meet weekly.
I look forward to welcoming you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have completed a MA/PGdip at Regents University, preceded by a Foundation course in Psychotherapy and Counselling at Regents University.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP).
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
During these times, it's important to keep checking in with yourself and see if there are ways in which you can improve your day to day well being.
It's also important to connect with people and allow yourself to feel less isolated in these challenging times.
I am here to help online with psychotherapy and counselling to talk problems through as they emerge and help to adjust our life according to the changing environment.
