About me

 I'm taking on new clients and as a qualified and experienced  Psychotherapist  offering short and long term therapy, I would be delighted to help you. I work with clients experiencing Depression, Anxiety, Bereavement, Relationship problems,  Family Issues, Low self-esteem and Co-dependence but Nothing  is too small to discuss. Everything is important.

 Once you can trust someone to share your feelings, you can understand them and see how change is possible. Speaking to someone without judgement and outside your family helps bring a different perspective.  I work alongside you and support you through difficult times and listen with patience and compassion.  I can meet you in person or either on zoom or telephone , whichever suits you best. 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 and build a trusting and healing relationship.

How to start your sessions

Getting started is 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 and then  book an appointment. I support people world wide so location is not a problem.

Online sessions last 50 minutes,  the same as face to face. On the initial consultation, we discuss  what brings you to therapy, see how you feel and then going forward,  plan to meet weekly.

Thank you for taking the time to reading my profile.  I look forward to welcoming you.

What are the benefits of online therapy?

This way of accessing therapy works well as time is more flexible  as well as location.  There are no travel costs involved and you can work from the comfort of your home or office. I work also face to face in a small centre in Kensington   for those who prefer to meet in person and welcome you either way. I support people wherever is convenient.

Training, qualifications & experience

I 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).

I worked at Regents College, Kensington and Chelsea College and London Metropolitan University gaining experience as a therapist and since then have been working privately on a one to one basis.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Coming out of lockdown, things may  seem a little different so its important to check in with yourself and allow for any adjustments, whether its working from home or gradually returning to the office.

Re-connecting with people is like coming out of hibernation so do feel free to book an appointment and talk through how it is you are feeling.

I am here to help in person and also online to support and welcome new clients.
