Hello my name is Laura, I am a qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist based in Surrey.
I offer a variety of therapies including but not limited to private one-to-one counselling, video call sessions both short and long term, in a safe, non-judgemental space for you to talk about any issues that may be troubling you.
The aim of my counselling sessions is to help you develop a healthier and stronger sense of yourself, integrating various methods and coping strategies.
At times, life can feel like a struggle and unexpected challenges may arise, which can feel debilitating and hard to cope with. Dealing with these thoughts, feelings and behaviours on your own can be hard. But together, we can talk about these conflicts, openly explore any issues that may be holding you back, recognise specific links and patterns and start to work on solutions. This, in turn, will help you to move forward, be more comfortable with yourself and live a more fulfilled and happy life.
I have experience working with anxiety, depression, bereavement, self-harm, relationship issues and a range of life challenges. I am particularly passionate about working with teenagers and young people and have over 5 years experience of this.

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
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.
