Hello, my name is Laura. I am a qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor.
I currently practise privately in Shoreditch and Islington, offering face-to-face and online sessions for adults.
Throughout their lives many people go through emotional and psychological difficulties. Psychotherapy can help to bring about change through conversations, in some instances to understand a particular and current challenge or symptom, and in others to explore one’s life more extensively. Psychotherapy can last a very short time or for a longer duration, depending upon one’s wishes and motivations towards developing and maintaining a more resilient and self-fulfilling life. Psychotherapy can help you to:
identify and access the inner and external resources available to you
recognise the choices you have and to implement change
enhance your problem-solving skills
My approach – is relational, exploratory and collaborative in working together with the individual towards understanding their current difficulties and patterns.
I work with clients who may have a sense of being stuck within holding patterns or contexts that are no longer purposeful, or who struggle with issues relating to identity, behaviours, emotions and thoughts. Clients may also feel estranged from themselves without knowing why, or who have trauma and relational concerns. I offer:
a skilled understanding from several listening perspectives
a non-judgemental and confidential environment
tools and techniques to support the management of symptoms and for facing challenges
My expertise and depth of understanding – is located within (but not limited to) the following:
influences on behaviour, thought and emotions
generational transmission of relational patterns
