Laura Sandelson UKCP reg, MBACP, MA
Psychotherapy helps deal with issues that cause you distress or prevent you from living your life to its fullest. As a fully qualified, UKCP registered and MBACP integrative psychotherapist, I can help you to explore your difficulties so that you can move forward in a more positive way. Together we can look at things from a fresh perspective and unpack the things that you are struggling with which will help you become more self-aware so that you can make informed choices and feel more in control. As a relational therapist I place much importance on the therapeutic relationship which can be immensely healing.
I work with adults on an individual basis and provide therapy for many issues, including depression, relationship difficulties, loss, trauma, stress and anxiety, poor self-image and life transition. You will be able to unburden yourself and explore difficult feelings and thoughts in a safe, confidential and supportive relationship, helping you find relief and resolution.
As an integrative psychotherapist I have a flexible approach to what might help you and am able to draw on a number of long-standing and evidence-based traditions including Psychoanalytic, Humanistic and Attachment theory depending on your needs.
Usually we have an initial meeting to discuss more fully what’s on your mind and the type of therapy you need. I offer short-term (usually up to 12 sessions) and long-term work. Once we get started we meet once a week for fifty minutes. For long-term work I usually review things every three months.
I also offer supervision to trainee and qualified therapists.
