Laura Graham is a fully qualified integrative psychotherapist who provides therapy to individuals in private practice and through the low cost service at The Awareness Centre. After receiving her MA in Clinical Mental Health Counselling in Seattle, Washington, USA, Laura gained diverse experience providing therapy within the private and voluntary sectors, both in the US and the UK. She is a registered member of the BACP.
Holding a deep respect for the therapeutic process, Laura offers compassionate and exploratory therapy. She is most interested in working with people who wish to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their difficulties through an open-ended, and usually longer-term relationship with a therapist. Working from a psychodynamic perspective, additionally influenced by Existential and Buddhist principles of healing and change, she is keen to work with people who wish to explore their potential, in a safe space, free from the constraints of traditional pathologising language.
Laura was inspired to begin her training as a therapist after a period of self-reflection and exploration of her own life struggles. She is keenly interested in Jungian psychology and how our unconscious motivations shape our conscious lives. Laura specialises in working with people who manage mood disorders, such as anxiety and/or depression. She has experience working with people on: childhood trauma, lack of meaning or purpose, low confidence or self-esteem, issues of shame and guilt, relationship and communication issues, anger and elevated emotions, grief and loss, and the chronically mentally ill. In addition, she has worked with LGBTQ adults, and within the NHS.
