I have worked in NHS services such as Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services and Paediatric Clinical Psychology alongside my private practice.
I am an experienced and compassionate Clinical Psychologist dedicated to supporting people through times of challenge and emotional distress. Through our work together, we will reflect on your experiences to create an understanding of your difficulties that is informed by psychological theory. This understanding, along with clarification of your goals for therapy, will then guide your psychological therapy plan. My aim is always to provide you with the knowledge and skills to reach a point where you no longer need me!

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.

I'm committed to offering a safe, confidential and non judgemental environment.

If you are experiencing overwhelming thoughts and emotions or finding it difficult to make sense of your life at this time, you may benefit from my support in helping you to find clarity, move forward, cope better and enjoy life fully again.

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.

As a counsellor I provide a safe space for everyone no matter where you find yourself in life, yourself, relationships or stage. I hope I would offer place for you to do this without the fear of being judged and time to remember who you are and how to understand a little bit of what is going on in you. I will do this by exploring together techniques to help you understand your past, your present and look towards the future.

The disabling experiences of ADHD are very real. Living with this distinctive brain can be a real challenge in a world that doesn't suit us very well. As real as the difficulties are, I don't think our brains are broken. We have a wide range of distinctive strengths beyond our diagnosis. I can help you understand your strengths, to become your own best guide in your own life. If you'd like to arrange a coaching session with me, contact me, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

You may have very clear goals, hopes & expectations in mind & together we will work to find ways of realising them. Or you may not yet know what you hope for & that's fine too - together we will work it out.

As a Systemic, Couples & Family Psychotherapist this enables me to work with individuals, couples, families, & groups. I have particular expertise in family breakdown, couple dilemmas, separation and divorce to name but a few. Systemic ways of working can also be referred to as a 'relational' psychotherapy. This approach primarily involves working with the many different relationships we exist in daily. Sometimes these relationships are good for us, and can be a resource in our lives - other times we can sometimes be in relationship with someone or something that can create problems and/or difficulties.

Teen Counsellors

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
