MSc, UKCP Accredited Counsellor & Psychotherapist

About me

Hi, I’m Laura. I offer a safe therapeutic space for you to explore what is challenging you.  Whatever your reasons for seeking therapy, I believe it is paramount for you to feel truly heard and understood, a vital process in itself. I work in a collaborative and relational way to achieve this. I will support you in exploring your challenges, and how you would ultimately like to be in relation to yourself, others, and your wider environment. Therapy provides a unique space to help you to make sense of your experience and emotions, and from this achieve greater fulfilment from your life and relationships.

My background is in Marketing and teaching young adults. I also have over 2 years of experience working within psychiatric rehabilitation settings, supporting adults to overcome extreme adversity and trauma. I have come to be passionate about each of us having our own unique experience and story. I passionately believe increased awareness can allow access to greater choice over who and how we want to be. I strongly believe in and work within a trauma-informed approach.

I currently work exclusively online or over the phone. I work with adults on both a short term and long term basis. I accept clients funded by the following insurers: AXA Health, Vitality Health, and Aviva

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified, UKCP accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor. I hold an MSc in Humanistic Psychotherapy and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapy gained from Metanoia Institute. I integrate the modalities of Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, and Person-Centred. This enables me to provide a unique approach which I can tailor to individual needs.
