Laura Walden Reg MBACP, Dip.Couns
Laura Walden Integrative Counsellor (Member of BACP)
Life can be challenging from time to time, sometimes generalised stress anxiety and depression can stop you from facing those challenges, bring relationship difficulties and just enjoying yourself. Sometimes you just need that little bit of breathing space and someone to help you to work with those feelings or issues. Someone who can provide a caring confidential space to acknowledge and work with your feelings.
My aim as a counsellor is to provide the right conditions, a confidential, non-judgemental relationship, to help you find your unique self again to accept and even help you embrace the realisations and changes you make.
If you are wondering what to expect, the first session is half the normal session charge, and is a chance to meet and find out if what is on offer is what you are looking for, so please feel free to contact me. There will be no obligation or pressure.
