““Trauma is not what happens to you but what happens inside you”

About Therapy

There are times in everyone’s life that we could use some extra support and guidance. Therapy is about finding a safe place to begin to face what is painful or frightening, so you can begin to choose how you want to live in this world. In my passion for supporting others, I provide an open-minded, flexible, and non-judgmental space for you to explore and process your emotions.

The support is dynamic and creative, which helps utilise all your strengths and different parts of the brain.  I am a strong believer in the power of reconnecting with your authentic self, and uncovering your lost potential. Psychotherapy is a collaborative process, so your input is essential to change and growth. Your honest feedback is welcomed so that therapy continues to be useful for you.

Helping you to achieve your optimal mental health and restore function is my priority. My approach is creative and holistic which can help you build your confidence, improve relationships and reach your full potential.  It’s my belief that we all have a true need to be seen, heard and uniquely expressed. Through our counselling sessions, I can support you to develop your communication in relationships and offer tools to live a more meaningful, fulfilling and hopeful life. Therapy can be so helpful in learning about yourself and understanding your emotions and internal world.

About Laura

As an accredited UKCP Contemporary Psychotherapist, I work with individuals online in the UK and Ireland.  After volunteering at Mind in London for three years, I took the big step to set up in private practice in 2020. I am passionate about working with women and guiding them on their healing journey. As an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, I particularly work with clients with trauma, relationship issues, and those experiencing anxiety.

I have worked as a therapist since 2010; initially I trained as an Occupational Therapist in the UK. This role offered me such diversity and over the years my niche towards mental health became apparent. I have worked in a variety of roles such as Psychiatric hospitals, magistrates courts, community mental health teams, and even employment support.
My journey into Psychotherapy was fuelled by many aspects of my story. I have always had a passion for supporting people to transform their lives. That’s incredibly rewarding, and its such a privilege to be a small part of. The personal experiences I have had of therapy have supported me in my own growth over the years. I still attend therapy regularly, and continue to get huge benefits from it. I believe that healing from trauma is a lifelong process and I’m committed to my own healing journey.
