Laura is an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor who works with couples and individuals and can help you with issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties as well as single events, and multiple events traumas. This could be rape and sexual violence, bullying, stress at work or home, addictions, accidents at work or on the road and even difficult childhood memories. Anything that is bothering you to the extent that it affects your daily life. Her approach is collaborative, working alongside you to understand your difficulties so together you can create change and process painful events and memories.
Laura specialises in EMDR therapy which is effective in treating terrifying events such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) and Complex Trauma, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), phobias, depression, anxiety, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES), neglect or abuse, and ongoing traumatic stress.
Psychotherapy and counselling involve exploring your feelings, paying attention to what you are doing, and challenging your thinking. In this way, we can take responsibility for ourselves and have more options and resources for dealing with difficulties. Our issues are very often symptoms of deeper layers of trauma, loss, or wounding. Laura can support you in this process in a respectful, compassionate, and creative way to work at these more profound levels of healing.
A note on EMDR Therapy:
The EM in EMDR stands for Eye Movement which is how this form of therapy was discovered, however, it is now acknowledged that any form of 'bilateral stimulation, such as tapping and audio tones works just as well, making it easy to use online.
The recent findings in neurobiology show that memories are stored differently in the brain depending on whether they have been processed. -Usually 'good' memories are processed and do not cause us any distress. However, 'bad' memories or events, whether it is recent or in the past that cause us distress, are often not processed and these memories can cause depression and anxiety. These feelings can be triggered in the present because the event has not been processed/metabolised by the brain. EMDR offers a direct way to work with those issues/memories by helping the brain to process the events and associated feelings, leaving one feeling happier, more engaged, and fulfilled.
Laura offers face to face and online therapy including EMDR to self-funding clients to adolescents and adults and is registered with private health insurers including BUPA, AXA, Aviva, Vitality. She is accredited with EMDR UK and British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and holds membership with ISSTD, ISSTS and Trauma Aid.
