Many of us find ourselves, at some point in our lives, feeling overwhelmed and in need of support. Counselling can offer a safe and confidential place in which to make sense of the feelings that we are experiencing. Laura Millar provides a supportive space for clients to talk about their feelings without fear of judgement. As an integrative trained therapist, Laura draws on several ways of working according to what her individual clients need. She works using psychodynamic techniques to help clients find links between their childhood experiences and current behavioural patterns, and a person-centred approach that recognises the individuality of each client and the importance of the relationship between client and counsellor.
Prior to becoming a counsellor, Laura spent over a decade working in Finance. She has extensive experience of the ways in which external demands can place pressure on people, and the anxiety that can lead to, as well as how inability to communicate feelings can lead to unhealthy coping methods. She works with clients to identify their individual sources of stress and look at ways to alleviate and manage their emotions. In addition to anxiety and depression, Laura has a special interest in post-natal depression.
Laura is an integrative counsellor, working towards a diploma in integrative counselling. She sees NHS patients for counselling at a GP surgery in Wandsworth. She is a member of the BACP.
