At any time in our lives we may struggle to cope – this can be because of bereavement, breakdown of relationships, difficulties at work or loss of employment, physical illness, mental ill health such as anxiety or depression, traumatic experiences or just because we are not happy with life in general. For many of us, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated feelings of isolation and anxiety.

Why are we spending more time on how we look & less on how we feel? Most of us want to make an improvement to our daily lives but feel lost as to where to start, let me help. I realise the thought of speaking to someone can be scary, give me a call & see how you feel after. If I am not a fit I can give you some tips on how to find someone else, no need at all to feel embarrassed or nervous.

Working as a therapist with over 15 years of practice, and 15,000 hours of therapy I have gained extensive insight into where issues lie, when clients approach me for help. The most common issue is lack of self realisation. Without this it is difficult to heal, to move on, to let go! One thing that is guaranteed in life is that you will get hurt. Often starting from childhood, we all carry some form of unresolved emotional baggage. I have learnt through all my client hours, that the most effective way of healing is to look deep inside, and build your own empowerment and release, for permanent change.

Through a container of sand we are transported to a world with endless possibilities, a world in which our deepest inner story can be welcomed into the light. Often children and young people find it difficult to express their innermost feelings verbally. In SandStory Therapy, the sand and symbols are the voice of the young person, giving them a safe space to express their feelings. With the help of a supportive therapist sand trays are explored and feelings are processed in a way that is deeply nurturing and healing.

A fully registered member of BACP, I use an integrated approach in my client work. Using a person-centered, psychodynamic and humanistic style to keep the client at the centre of all my work, I hope to create a safe space where my clients can feel at ease to work through whatever they need to at their own pace. I am also a fully qualified EFT practitioner (Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as 'tapping') and am able to offer this technique in my client work, along with mindfulness and meditation. Sometimes we need to access more tools, helping my clients find the best fit for them can create lasting change.

Are you consumed by thoughts about food and weight? Maybe the more you control your eating, the more you binge? You know dieting doesn't work, but you don't know what to do? Maybe you overeat in secret or alone and feel guilty about it? Perhaps you feel like you've tried everything to no avail? Maybe you feel like you're continually sabotaging yourself? I understand how you feel. I struggled with disordered eating for years and at the time didn't know what to do or where to turn for help. I help women overcome their unhealthy relationships with food by addressing the root causes of emotional eating and binge eating.

Do you feel that your relationship with your partner is stale? Is it fraught with conflict and tension? Do you know that things could be better but don't know where to start to move forward? If so, relationship counselling could be just what you need. Often, even couples who have been living together for years are surprised when they come to my therapy room and find that they don't really know what makes their partner tick or why they behave as they do. I will guide you to a greater understanding of each other and we will work together to create a relationship which is warm, nurturing and safe for both of you.

Sharing the impact of these distressing times can help with finding the resources to ease distress and consider which best next steps to take.

I have a particular Interest in anxiety and in trauma work and am trained in EMDR and Trauma- focussed CBT which are the two current gold standard NICE recommended evidence based treatments in this area.

Hello, My name is Laura, and I am a BACP registered Integrative Counsellor, with a passion for walking alongside others as they navigate the ups and downs of life. I believe each person deserves to flourish, yet sometimes there can be blocks in our ability to grow. This could be due to a current ongoing issue, if this is you, support is available. If difficulties in the past are hindering you, exploration and support through the past is available to you. I believe there is great potential in all for growth, and that each person deserves a caring and neutral space to work out some of the difficulties in life.

How can I find a therapist in Bangor?

Search for nearby therapists or counsellors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or postcode; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or postcode into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
