About

Hello, and a very warm welcome to my page. I'm Laura, a BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist working online, via telephone and face to face. If you’re reading this, the chances are you’ve decided that counselling might help you at this time. Perhaps you're fed up with feeling the way that you do, or maybe you feel stuck and you're not sure how to move on in your life. It could be that you don't know where to turn to. Counselling could help. I can offer you a safe, private space in which to explore your concerns without fear of judgement. Together we can work out what is important to you, as an individual.
I trained in relational therapy, and as such, I believe the key to therapeutic success lies within the relationship built between counsellor and client. I build a safe, respectful and trusting working relationship in collaboration with you- in which you are able to talk about and explore whatever it is that might have brought you to counselling.
Together, we will work through your thoughts and experiences and in doing so, we might discover links and patterns between the way you are feeling and the choices you make, consciously or unconsciously, when choosing relationships or ways to behave. In doing this and identifying such patterns, the door is opened to discovering new ways of being.
