Counselling Bicester

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, or relationship difficulties?

I'm Laura, a qualified and accredited therapist. I provide a welcoming and non-judgemental space where you can share your thoughts, feelings, problems and worries in total confidence. 

I offer a supportive, confidential counselling service for teenagers and adults, with tailored sessions online, via telephone and face-to-face in Bicester OX26.


I provide a safe and empathetic space where you can think about yourself and anything that's bothering you. I will share my insights and reflections to help you understand yourself better and make positive changes in your life. Therapy will always follow the pace you’re comfortable with, giving you time and space to reflect on your situation and consider the best way forward.

I've experienced the huge benefits of counselling many, many times - both as a patient and psychotherapist. I'm extremely passionate about mental health and love giving people the support they need to improve their lives and feel happier. 

Whether you've just encountered a problem or have been struggling for a long time, it can take a lot of courage to seek help - but it's likely to be one of the best things you've ever done. Send me a message for a free, no-obligation consultation to find out more about counselling and consider whether it's right for you.
