About me

My name is Laura and I am a qualified postgraduate counsellor 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.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

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.
