Is anxiety something you struggle with almost everyday?
Do you constantly worry?
Do you find it difficult to stop your thoughts going
round in your head?
Do you always think the worst will happen?
Do physical symptoms such as chest pains, stomach cramps,
racing heart trouble you?
These are all signs of anxiety and struggling with these on a
daily basis can be exhausting and scary.
As someone who struggled with anxiety for many years
I understand how you are feeling.
My own positive experience of counselling led me to train as a counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
How Can I Help You?
I can offer you a safe place where you can talk in confidence.
A place where you can talk to me about what is
really going on for you.
It can often be easier to talk about things that are really troubling you with someone you don't know.
As we talk it can help you to understand why you are
feeling anxious and together we can work out what can help
reduce your anxiety.
This will help lead you to living a calmer, happier and more
How can you book a session?
If you are ready to talk about your anxiety and would like
to explore ways
to help you manage your anxiety
and stop your panic attacks

The first session helps me to understand what is going on for
you and a chance for you to get to know me.
We can then make a decision about future sessions.

Why have I got Anxiety?
Anxiety can be triggered by recent or past events
Many events in life can cause stress and if stress continues this can lead to anxiety
Difficult moments in your life such as relationship break ups, divorce, births, deaths, work stress can all lead to anxiety
You may have always had anxiety, maybe due to the environment you grew up in or experiences from your childhood.
Anxiety is a necessary emotion it helps protect you from threat or danger, but these life experiences can contribute to your anxiety becoming over sensitive.
Anxiety can be a very difficult emotion to cope with due to the many physical symptoms that accompany it and learning techniques to cope with these symptoms is also important to help reduce your anxiety.
How Can Counselling Help?
If your anxiety has become too overwhelming for you it can be helpful to find ways to manage your anxiety.
Being able to talk about your experiences that are causing you stress or anxiety can help,
I provide a safe, confidential and relaxed space to help you discuss the things that are worrying you.
Being able to talk to someone who has no judgments or preconceived ideas about what is bothering you can be a great relief.
It is through talking about your problems and then formulating a plan tailored to your needs, that together we find ways to reduce your symptoms and manage your anxiety.
Helping you lead a calmer, worry free life
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a researched based therapy that has good evidence in reducing anxiety.
Through the sessions we may practice some tools and exercises that you can use to reduce your anxiety
As part of my service I also offer an optional follow up programme of e-mails and check in sessions, to keep you on track.
Ensuring you continue to manage your anxiety leading to a calmer life.
Generally my clients find that their panic attacks will stop after 6-12 sessions. (of course this cannot be guaranteed)
Previous Client Experiences
Almost straight away Laura had a common effect on me. and the more I talked, the more I listened and the more I did the exercises I was given, everything fell in to place like a massive jigsaw.
Thank you so much Laura for getting my life back on track.
I am amazed at how far counselling with Laura helped me progress emotionally and mentally. I have felt I have been able to discuss anything in a safe environment
I started counselling with Laura , after months of struggling with Panic attacks. The techniques and strategies Laura uses, alongside her empathy and understanding have made such a difference and several months later, I can honestly say my life has totally changed for the better.
If you want to make a positive change in your life, I highly recommend Laura.
