About me and my therapy practice

My name is Laura and I am a fully qualified and insured integrative therapist and I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). 

Sometimes it can feel as if we have no one to listen to us, or that our own problems can feel too big or too small to be able to seek help. Quite often others may listen to respond without a real understanding about what is going on for you. Being able to talk to a trained counsellor gives you the opportunity to feel listened to and to be understood.

Having trained in both Psychodynamic and Humanistic models, I incorporate both elements of these approaches in my work with clients. In my own private practice, I have also had the privilege in working with clients from the LGBTQ+ community from a range of differing age groups.

I am warm, empathic, and will offer you the confidential and safe space that you need to explore your issues as you embark on your own personal journey of gaining more understanding about yourself and your own needs.  

Practice description

I am able to offer both face to face and online sessions for clients. Sessions are usually held on a weekly basis at the same time to enable continuity.

I have two separate rates for online and in person sessions.

Sessions held online via Zoom are £45 for 50 minute sessions.

Sessions held face to face within Barnstaple are £50 for 50 minute sessions. 

My first session

Our first session will enable us to think about how we can work together. It will be an opportunity for you to ask questions about how I work and whether my style of counselling suits you.
