About me and my therapy practice
Hello, and thanks for visiting. I'm Laura and I'm trained as an Integrative Psychotherapist.
While that sounds complicated, you might have heard the terms therapist, or counsellor used interchangeably to describe what I do. But what it means is my passion in life is helping people through mental health problems, distressing or challenging times in their life and helping them grow in to people they want to be.
I'm a firm believer that each person is uniquely individual, and any therapeutic help they receive should be tailored to them, and their needs. Being Integrative means I'm not set on one school of thought, and work with you to find what the best approach is for you.
I provide a safe and confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings, without judgement. You don't have to have a diagnosis to come and see me; if you're struggling with your mental health or life in general we'll work together in therapy to try and help you overcome this.
You're in control of the sessions, you can bring whatever issues you'd like to discuss, there's no session limit, we go at a pace you're comfortable with. There's no pressure to discuss things you aren't ready to. Instead we'll look at working together to set realistic goals for our work together, based on what you'd like to achieve.
I have specialist training from the National Centre of Eating Disorders, and have significant experience in helping and treating those with eating disorders, and body image issues. I also have experience working with depression, anxiety, self-harm, relationship problems and significant trauma.
