About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I'm Laura. Welcome!  I am a qualified counsellor (MBACP) and psychotherapist.

Whatever challenges you are facing, an impartial, non-judgmental listening ear in confidence can sometimes help you clarify inner thoughts and feelings.

As a person-centred therapist, I offer you support and care to focus on your own needs, preferences and goals. I put you, the individual at the centre of your own process, empowering you to make your own choices based on your own circumstances and values. Working together, we will build a relationship of trust and respect, within which I can recognise and value your experiences and perspective whilst supporting you in your choices.

Practice description

I have with a private practice in Broadstairs. I offer therapy to adults and young people. I have also undertaken specialist online training so I am well-equipped to work online for those who prefer this platform or live further afield.

I work with a range of issues:-

Relationships

Anxiety

Depression

Low Self-Esteem

Self-Harm

Suicidal Thoughts

Trauma

Whether you opt for online sessions or come to my therapy room, I provide a safe and nurturing environment tailored to you and your needs. With a genuine, non-judgemental and empathic approach to my work, I will walk alongside you to support you in making choices and decisions that will give you a sense of emotional wellbeing.

My first session

Initial Phone Consultation (Free of charge)

We start with an initial free of charge 20 minute phone consultation, where we can ask questions and determine whether my way of working is the right fit for you. We can at this stage, if appropriate book your first face to face session. (Either online or in person.)

First Session (charged at the standard fee)

In our first session, (which is typically 50 minutes long) I will begin by asking some administrative questions regarding your address, date of birth and other details necessary to begin our work together. Near the end of the first session, we will determine whether you would like short-term or open-ended therapy and with what frequency. At this stage we will book in subsequent sessions if you feel comfortable to do so. There is no obligation to continue to book any further sessions, but if you’re ready to, we can book weekly or fortnightly sessions, depending on your preference.
