CURRENTLY OFFERING TELEPHONE AND ONLINE COUNSELLING
Hello I'm Laura a qualified and experienced counsellor
specialising in anxiety,
I am an Anxiety UK approved Therapist
Based in Parkstone, Poole, Dorset..
Offering Face to Face, telephone and online video sessions
Welcome to SeeClear Counselling
Do you constantly worry?
Do you find it difficult to stop your thoughts going around in your head?
Do you always think the worst will happen?
Do you try to avoid social events?
Do physical symptoms such as chest pains, stomach cramps, racing heart trouble you?
These are all signs of anxiety and can be exhausting and scary.
"Counselling with Laura helped me move from a place of negative anxiety and depression that would stop me from putting myself in social situations, to a place where I feel confident and can manage my anxiety"
Relieving your anxiety is my specialty and I can help you find ways to manage your anxiety better.
I will help you find ways to
Reduce how much you worry
Understand your negative thoughts and how to prevent them happening
Think differently about the future
Start to look forward to social events
Slow down your racing heart, reduce your chest pains and other physical symptoms, and understand why these happen
"I am amazed at how far counselling sessions with Laura helped me progress emotionally and mentally. I have felt I have been able to discuss anything in a safe environment"
Anxiety can be caused by recent or past events and understanding why these are causing you anxiety helps you to understand how changes in your life can reduce these feelings and lead to a happier more content life for you
There is no 'one size fits all' with counselling, so I work with what is best for you and the problems you bring.
For example, CBT can provide you with stratergies and tools to help manage your anxiety.
Person Centred is best if you are trying to work through a particularly difficult time in your life. ie divorce, grief etc
I make sure we work together in a way that is most effective for you and help you find the results you are looking for.
"I was apprehensive to start as I had never had counselling and thought it might be scary and formal......Fortunately it was nothing like that. Laura was engaging and so easy to talk to....I never felt judged or misunderstood...."
As well as working with Anxiety and panic I have had specialist training in working with those who have experienced childhood abuse.
I can work with all kinds of life problems so please do get in touch to talk about what is troubling you
Unlike the NHS counselling service I do not have a long waiting list, generally I can make an appointment to see you within a week.
Your introductory session is at a reduced rate of £20 allowing you to meet me and find out how we can work together.
Future sessions are then at £40 for 50 minute
To book your first session please phone, text or e-mail me and I will get back to you, usually within a couple of hours, and we can find a time that suits you and book an initial session.
ANXIETY SUPPORT GROUP
If individual sessions are not affordable for you then join my support group.
Over 12 weeks change your mindset. Through the introduction of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy based tools you will understand what causes your anxiety and learn strategies to manage your anxiety long term.

Is counselling for you?
I would like to thank you Laura for the help and support you provided me over the last 12 weeks.
I really was quite afraid and anxious about it but you really helped me get through quite a difficult and unexpected time in my life and I very much appreciate you being able to provide a safe space for me to explore my feelings and finding a clear way forward.
