About me and my therapy practice
The core model of my training is Transactional Analysis (TA), however the way in which I work tends to be naturally more person centred. I am an integrative therapist, using different models of counselling in my work including TA, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), creative methods and Mindfulness techniques.
Being an integrative therapist means I use my knowledge of different therapeutic approaches during our work, which enables the freedom and flexibility to work in a way which suits you as an individual.
I have undertaken additional training in order to offer telephone and online counselling services.
My name is Laura and I am the founder of Roots Counselling Services. I am a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, based near to Newcastle upon Tyne. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have worked in a range of different settings, including the voluntary sector, the National Health Service (NHS) and more recently a counselling service in Newcastle City Centre. I have supported clients who have worked to understand, and address, a range of different issues such as mental health difficulties, bereavement, work related issues, identity issues, trauma, relationship difficulties, and addictions.
