Laura Mole MBACP Online/ Phone Support, Anxiety Counsellor
How I can help
I work with young adults and teenagers who want to feel more confident, calm, less stressed and anxious in their lives, in social situations and relationships. I know how much of a big deal it is to reach out for counselling especially when you have anxiety, and I promise to make it as easy as possible for you to get the support you need.
We can talk about your worries, use tools to control the physical symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks, explore the reasons behind your anxiety at your pace, and look to improve the way you feel in a supportive and caring way.
What is counselling?
Counselling is more than listening, I will help you to work through things as an equal, in a caring, confidential environment. I may pick up on patterns of behaviour, or suggest ways to reframe thoughts, and if you would like we can explore the past to see how it affects the present.
What to expect in your first session
We will meet for 50 minutes, and during that time I will try to find out a little about you, and your current situation, what your goals are, and what you would like from a counsellor and counselling.
If you are under 18, you may want to come with a parent or guardian for the beginning of your first session, but you don't have to.
At the end of the session you can either book a regular weekly time, or have a think about whether I am the right counsellor for you.
If you would like to know more, or book a first appointment please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

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).
