Laura Newman MBACP (Accred)
Hi, I'm Laura, I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor based in Romford and South Woodford. I appreciate the current concerns over COVID-19, and therefore I am also able to offer either FaceTime or telephone sessions.
Your decision to look for a counsellor is a brave step. I can accompany you through life’s difficulties, and together we can help you achieve managing them yourself with more confidence, and making a positive difference to your life.
Are you looking for support with challenges in your life?
We will work together on addressing what you want to bring to the sessions. I can offer you weekly 50 minutes away from your life, to reflect on your life, in a calm and professional space. Sessions are built around a pace that's right for you.
My approach is Person Centred with Humanistic influences. I help with a range of common life problems such as, depression, low mood, self esteem, relationships (family dynamics as well as partners), LGBT, stress, anxiety and alcohol use.
My specialist knowledge is in, but not limited to, bereavement, loss and change.
I'd be happy to meet with you for an initial session to explore how I might help you with your concerns, and how my approach works with the issue at hand.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
