Laura | Counsellor

Online and Phone Counselling

Hello and welcome! Feeling a bit overwhelmed and unsure where to start? Hopefully this page will enable you to decide if I might be the right therapist to help you...

Would you like to feel more confident? Are you looking for a deeper connection with yourself and others?  Would you like a clearer sense of purpose and direction in your life?

I believe that in the right conditions, we can thrive- not just survive. However, sometimes unresolved issues and trauma, self-limiting beliefs and overwhelming emotions such as anxiety and depression can be a block.

I believe that ALL emotions are valid and natural responses to lived experiences, including trauma. I aim to offer you a supportive space where you can feel and process your emotions, without judgement or advice. 

My hope is that through our work together, you will learn to listen to yourself and discover your own inner capacity to face life's challenges.




Online sessions

Online (or phone) sessions are convenient options for modern living, giving you more opportunity to fit your sessions around your schedule. They take place regularly online via Zoom- a secure, reliable and user-friendly platform- in your own chosen safe, private space. 

With online counselling, I offer the option to work creatively if you are interested. This can be a powerful way to discover and express deep feelings and emotions. I usually suggest we introduce this after a few sessions, so we can build trust and see what themes emerge to explore creatively.

I am trained to deliver counselling online and by phone, and am experienced in both. You may be surprised at the depth of therapeutic relationship that can be built when working in these ways!



Person-centred counselling


As a person-centred counsellor, I take my lead from you. I believe you are the expert on yourself and your life experiences. Offering empathy and warmth, I will listen without judgement, reflect and sometimes prompt or ask questions to help you gain deeper insight into yourself.

If you would like to know more or book an appointment, please send me a message.

I specialise in the area of self-esteem and confidence. I believe that by providing a space where you can be accepted just as you are, you will become more self-accepting and authentic in life. This can often be longer term work, as you unpack core beliefs and work to challenge these and develop new ways of seeing yourself and others. However, short-term counselling can also be effective if you have a specific focus for the work. 

The introductory session(s) gives an opportunity to get a feel for whether we would be a good fit, and to discuss your hopes for the work going forward.

Most common issues I support people with:

  • Self-esteem/ confidence
  • Perfectionism and people-pleasing
  • Anxiety
  • Finding purpose/direction
  • Neurodivergence
