Do you feel controlled or trapped in a difficult relationship? have you lost your identity somewhere? or still looking for "The One" but always end up in the wrong relationship? Do you keep attracting the wrong partner type? Maybe you have left a toxic (narcissistic) relationship, and not sure how to trust again, or have been psychologically / emotionally abused and still feel confused? If you don't have full understanding of why it happened, you will be unable to "move on" or find emotional freedom in a future relationship. I offer understanding, answers, helpful insight and future guidelines.

Irrespective of what has happened to you or when life experiences impacted you I invite you to take time with me to gain a deeper understanding of the events that have taken place & of the relationships that may cause challenges. You may have very clear goals, hopes & expectations in mind & together we will work to find ways of realising them.

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.

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.

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.

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 am fully accredited with both BABCP and BACP and my approach is largely, although not exclusively, cognitive behavioural. 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.

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.

At some point everyone faces difficulty, pain, challenge, confusion & longs for change. Does any of this sound familiar to you? Sometimes friends and family can be too close to be impartial or perhaps you are not ready to share with them yet. You may find it helpful to talk about what life is like for you, try to make sense of it, explore how you would like it to be, and figure out how you can step towards choosing your definition of "better". Viktor Frankl (WWII survivor) once said that everything could be taken from you EXCEPT the freedom to choose your attitude toward circumstances, to choose your own way. Perhaps I can help.

I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space. Building a therapeutic relationship is important for my practice. I've been trained to work as an integrative counsellor - that means I can offer person-centered, humanistic, CBT and psychodynamic techniques depending on the client need. I normally offer an assessment appointment and then we agree a plan of the work we will do and how many sessions may be needed. I'm an Accredited member of the BACP and work to their ethical framework. I'm also an Accredited member of the NCS. I have provided around 2000 client sessions working with both adults and young people (11-18 yrs).

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.

Do you feel depressed, overwhelmed, anxious or stuck regarding how things change? I love working with people and offering space, expertise and empathy to find clarity in a moment when everything seems out of control or overwhelming. At your pace, we explore how you currently feel and begin to understand and make sense of your current experience. With knowledge of your past & in becoming aware of how current thoughts, emotions and behaviour interact and how difficulties are maintained, we'll uncover what needs to change. I then hope to empower and give you the confidence and method to make these changes.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Bangor?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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 Bangor 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.
