About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Laura and I am an experienced BACP registered counsellor working with both individuals and couples in my private practice which is situated at Fairford Leys Doctor's Surgery in Aylesbury.

You may be wondering if ‘just talking’ to another person really can resolve longstanding anxiety, stress and unhappiness. My experience is that it can. Developing personal insight and better understanding can change the way we think about ourselves, the way we experience life and the relationships we have with others.

My aim is to create a safe, calm, non-judgemental and respectful environment which will enable us to explore your problems, helping you to make sense of what is troubling you. People come to counselling for many different reasons and I believe that by talking to someone who will listen and respond to you as an individual, without discrimination or judgement, you can begin to feel less alone with your problems and work towards tackling the issues that are making you unhappy.

Aside from counselling, I have worked for many years in corporate business environments and therefore understand the pressures for those who work within them.

My training is in an Integrative model. This allows me to draw from a wealth of knowledge, training and experience from different therapeutic schools, and I can therefore tailor each session to your individual needs. I have clinical experience working for a National Child loss charity, MIND and in schools as well as at Relate where I trained to work relationally with couples.
