About Laura

Do you sometimes feel like life is too stressful, confusing, sad or overwhelming? Or have you been through trauma that is preventing you from living the life you want for yourself? Please don't give up, life can be better and well done for taking that first step!

Hello, my name is Laura and I am a qualified, experienced

integrative counsellor. My qualifications in counselling include person centred (PCT),

cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and I have a degree in Psychology which all

allow me to help you to work through issues affecting your mental and emotional

health such as trauma, anxiety, depression, low self confidence/self esteem,

bereavement, sexual/ emotional/ physical abuse, relationship difficulties and

suicidal ideation.

So, If you have worrying life issues, thoughts, behaviours and/or emotions

affecting you in a negative way and feel you are merely surviving rather than

thriving - then please email me to arrange a free consultation.

We can discuss how I can help you understand and manage your emotions, thoughts

and feelings to enable you to improve your own well-being and happiness.

I am a person centred therapist at heart so that means I am client led and we

would work through the issues that you decide are most important to you. As my

training was as an integrative therapist, I am able to draw from different

modalities depending on which we agree is the best fit for you.  This

includes cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) which means we can work together

to find strategies to help you to manage your thoughts, feelings and behaviours

more effectively.


I understand that reaching out for help can be hard and I have

great respect for anyone who is brave enough to come to counselling to work

through their issues. I will meet you with warmth, kindness and without



I offer you a safe, peaceful and confidential space for you to

work through your thoughts, feelings and emotions. I am here for you to help

you reach your potential in a warm, authentic, non-judgmental, empathetic and

understanding way.


My focus is to help you to reach your full potential by giving you a

space to explore your experiences, thoughts and feelings, understand their

impact on your life and then identify skills, strengths and strategies for you

to use now and in the future to help you grow into the person you want to be.


I work in a professional, ethical manner, adhering to the rules

and ethics of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP)

of which I am a registered member. 

Please email me if you would like a copy of my qualifications, BACP

membership or insurance coverage.


Most importantly, studies show that a strong therapeutic

relationship between client and counsellor is essential to successful therapy

outcomes for the client. Therefore, I would always work on building a trusting,

respectful, non-judgemental and caring relationship with you in a safe

space where you feel comfortable to explore and become more self aware.

So, if you think I may be the therapist for you, then please email

me and we can arrange a free consultation to give you the

opportunity to decide for yourself if you feel that we may be a good fit.
