I also have experience working with depression, anxiety , self-harm, relationship problems and significant trauma.
Hello, and thanks for visiting. I'm Laura and I'm trained as an Integrative Psychotherapist. I'm a firm believer that each person is uniquely individual, and any therapeutic help they receive should be tailored to them, and their needs.​ Being Integrative means I'm not set on one school of thought, and work with you to find what approach fits best for you. You're in control of the sessions, you can bring whatever issues you'd like to discuss, , we go at a pace you're comfortable with. We'll look at working together to set realistic goals, based on what you'd like to achieve.

I have worked in the NHS for 4 years, and have experience working with clients with a variety of difficulties including personality disorders, PTSD, Depression and Anxiety .
Art Therapy is an effective way to address personal challenges and develop self understanding, confidence and compassion. It is suitable for all ages and abilities and no art skills are needed to engage with the process. I encourage clients to make use of the materials provided during sessions which can help to externalise and visualise emotions which can be difficult or impossible to express in words. This can enable clients to reflect and process things which they may not even be aware are holding them back.

If you feel stuck or at a loss with your life, perhaps due to past or present experiences (for example relationship difficulties, illness, work problems, losses); or if thoughts and emotions are difficult to bear (maybe resulting in feelings of anxiety , depression, loneliness or emptiness), you might benefit from talking – sharing with somebody who is there just for you, unbiased and non-judgemental. We would work at building a therapeutic relationship based on mutual trust and respect so that a safe and protected space can be created.

Growing up neurodivergent (ND) can have an influence on your ability to connect, express emotions, feel whole & valuable due to society wanting you to conform to neurotypical (NT) standards. You may be realising the effects of growing up as an ND child especially if you were diagnosed as an adult, or you may be struggling to let go of the NT standards & thrive as a ND adult. Counselling is a great place to build a secure sense of self that helps you feel calm & centred through the difficult times. Together we can heal the disconnection, build coping strategies to recover from burnout & develop strength from the challenges you face.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
