About me

If you are suffering your way through anxiety - depression/low mood - stress - anger problems - panic attacks - phobias - low self-esteem - self-harming - eating disorders - post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD, including military) - addiction (all kinds) - obsessions (OCD) - sleep problems - relationship problems; I can help with effective and practical therapy, and difficulties can often be resolved within only a few sessions – sometimes just one – and in this way can provide good value for money.

As a Human Givens therapist I provide safe, reliable and practical help for emotional, behavioural and mental health difficulties. Using the best evidence based psychological knowledge about resolving such difficulties, I can help you move on with your life as quickly as possible.

Tom Lawrence has 20 years experience of helping adults of all ages, children and teenagers. His practical and holistic approach has enabled clients to change quickly, safely and easily - overcoming all sorts of difficulties - to lead a more relaxed and fulfilling life.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
