Well done for taking the first step to accessing support and alleviating some of the distress you are feeling. This is very often the hardest step and almost always the most daunting one but I hope that reading my profile encourages you to take the next step and begin your therapeutic journey. I have over 14 years experience in helping adults and young people to overcome anxiety, build self- esteem and confidence, fight depression and low mood and achieve healthy relationships. I specialise in working with people who experience intense or overwhelming emotions that can act as an obstacle to them living the life they want to live.
Psychotherapist, MSc, MBACP
Thank you for reading my profile. Counselling is a talking therapy, allowing you to work through issues that are affecting you and change your life for the better. It is based on a personal, empathetic, non-judgemental relationship between you and the counsellor. Within this relationship you can explore what is going on in your life, gain insight into your feelings, and better understand your behaviours and thinking patterns. This can help you to come to terms with past experiences, develop better ways of coping, help overcome depression or anxiety, and challenge and change unhelpful ways of thinking.
Hi, I'm Laura! In a compassionate and authentic setting, my work involves empowering children, young people and adults. Individuals with whom I work with are able to explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a safe environment, leading to improved psychological well-being. I have worked with children, young people and adults who have experienced trauma and abuse, whilst being trained in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and eating disorders. Authenticity and honesty are amongst my main priorities during treatment, ensuring clients leave therapy feeling informed and confident in managing their mental wellbeing.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counselors 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, 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 counsellors. Many have been licensed by the country or state 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 counseling. 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.
