Whether you’ve hit a crisis point, have something that’s been bothering you for a long time, or simply need someone to talk to, Laura offers a welcoming and confidential space – you won’t be judged or advised, just supported in being yourself, achieving your goals and working through the obstacles you feel are holding you back in life.
Laura works collaboratively with her clients in short-term therapy (6 – 20 sessions); they set the direction and the goals of therapy, and then work together with Laura towards achieving them. Laura works with her clients to examine their feelings, think with them about how things link together to hopefully provide a fresh perspective, and help them work out some coping skills for when times are rough.
Laura works using an integrative approach, which means she draws on several ways of working according to what her clients need. She also uses a psychodynamic approach, which means looking at the client’s past and how that might be showing up in their day to day life.
With a background working in finance in the City, Laura understands how stress and anxiety can show up in our day to day lives, making us feel stuck, making life feel like a struggle. She works with her clients to think about how things link together, to see what is holding them back and why, and she also teaches techniques to better manage the emotional stress of everyday life.
Laura is an experienced counsellor seeing clients in private practice at The Awareness Centre in Clapham. She holds a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and is a registered member of the BACP.
