About

Hello, My name is Laura and I am a professional counselling psychotherapist and relationship counsellor. My therapeutic approach is guided by depth-psychodynamic and analytical principles, defined by Carl Jung. My psychological work with clients focuses on raising consciousness and self-awareness, self-determination and individuation of the personality, establishment of healthy relationship skills and management of difficult or painful emotions - such as anger, anxiety, sadness, grief, isolation, depression, and despair. I provide a range of specific crisis & trauma intervention strategies, such as EMDR, TFT and Sandplay therapy.
I understands how unresolved stress, abuse, emotional neglect, drug and alcohol misuse, personality disorders and other mental health issues can impact individuals, relationships and family systems in profound ways. I work with individual children and adults, intimate couples & family groups to address these complex and deeply painful and enduring concerns
As an educational mentor, natural health practitioner and counselling psychotherapist, I am genuinely caring and interested in the challenges and concerns of each of my clients. I remain encouraging and optimistic of their success, through disappointments and accomplishments, on their unique journey toward physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing.
