My name is Laura and I am a qualified postgraduate counsellor and EMDR practitioner based in the Holme Valley. I am an accredited member of the BACP and experienced in working with children, young people and adults.
As an integrative therapist I tailor the way I work with you depending on your needs. Perhaps you have a specific issue you are struggling with that you would like support with or maybe you want help to make significant changes in your life. We can work together to explore the best way to move forward; this may involve thinking about your relationships, setting goals or working to understand your past.
My aim is to build a relationship with you where you are able to truly be yourself, gain a deeper understanding of who you are and what you need and to support you through this process.

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.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
If you think you would like to work with me or have any questions please email or phone and I will aim to get back to you within 48 hours. We can arrange an initial session where we can talk about what you hope to get out of counselling and if you decide to continue we will plan our next session.
