Welcome. There are times when something is troubling you and you are unable to think about and work through those issues on your own. It is never easy to ask for help and perhaps you have been struggling with issues and painful feelings for a while. I can provide a professional and safe environment in which you can speak openly and confidentially about whatever is on your mind. I am trained to listen to you in a way that can help you recognise the source of your present difficulties, which may be rooted in the past. This process can offer the possibility of long lasting change.

In troubling times it can sometimes feel like you are alone & seeking help might feel really difficult. Just having a space to make sense of the thoughts that jumble around our heads is invaluable. Perhaps you need to understand yourself, your relationships or events from your past. Sometimes all we need is someone to just listen and hear our story. Counselling promotes insight, fosters self-awareness & creates a stronger, more resilient sense of self. This powerful combination can be the kick-start for the changes in your life you wish to make - sometimes even the smallest changes can make a huge difference in your well-being.

People come to counselling for help and support with whatever issues they are struggling with. That could be issues from the past that are playing out in their everyday life, or worries in the future that may not have already happened. Having a space to feel safe and address issues is paramount to move forward with today’s stresses and strains. Understanding and addressing thoughts, behaviours and building emotional well-being is brought about by heightening consciousness and self-awareness allowing for better and healthier coping skills and strategies. This helps with issues around guilt, shame, self-esteem, anxiety and identity.

Does something need to change in your life but you don't feel brave enough or know how to do it ? I can help to build your confidence so that you feel better about yourself and develop a clearer understanding of what you want and don't want. I have experienced many challenges in my life in which I have had to search for my own true self, not other people's views of me but the real me who was always waiting to be discovered. I just needed to find her and trust her. We often stop listening to our 'inner voice' and often pay the consequences for it and can remain stuck afraid to do anything. I offer a space where you can be yourself.

We’re all unique, yet we share some challenges in life. Stress, trauma, loss and fear are just a few that can knock us off course. I see therapy as a way not only of getting you back on track, fast, but helping you to fulfil your potential. When the difficulties of life leave you feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope, I can help you to find the first steps to recovery. No one therapy can work for all, so my approach is to build on what works for you, drawing on therapeutic disciplines that best fit your presentation and personality.

Do you lie awake at night with your brain on replay? Would you love to turn off the negative thoughts or images? Do inner voices tell you that you can't, that you're useless, that your goals are too big and too scary to be achievable? Does guilt or fear rule your life? Would you literally rather die than stand up and say what you want or what you think? Counselling isn't just for traumatised abuse victims. It can help you with any change you want to make in your life whether large or small, or any emotional unease that you're feeling. It can change not just your life but the lives of all the people around you.

Hi, I'm Laura. Welcome to my counselling page. I am aware that it is a big step reaching out for help, especially with the unknowns this can bring. Often those who have taken that step are glad that they did and my hope is that you will experience the same. There are times when we need a confidential space away from family and friends to explore our feelings, perhaps what has happened to us, and find ways to manage and move forward. I work both short-term and long-term. Some people value set goals to work towards, other people value the space to see what emerges. Our work will be reviewed regularly to keep your needs central.

You may think that no one can else can understand the way you feel, and that you may be judged if you talk about what you are thinking and feeling. It may seem as though you are all alone with constant negative thoughts or overwhelming worries, unable to focus on anything or anyone else. The way you are feeling may be impacting on your work, relationships, parenting and day to day life. You may feel that things don’t feel right for you anymore, and want things to change, but don't know where to start.

At times of feeling low or anxious we often think, “what’s the point of trying it won’t make any difference”, leading to feelings of depression, sadness, fear and tearfulness. This then leads to changes in our behaviour such as withdrawing from others or staying in bed as we mull things over in our heads which makes us feel worse. Additionally, past trauma issues can often leave us feeling overwhelmed or with experiences of flashbacks and nightmares. Relationship issues left unresolved often leave us with a sense of helplessness and relationship breakdown leave us feel confused. Does this sound familiar to you?

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in GL1 are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in GL1 then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in GL1, or Child Psychologists in GL1.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like GL1 psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in GL1 specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
