Anxiety Prevention Programme

A post counselling programme to support you maintaining your anxiety freedom.

For more information complete the contact form below.



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 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 you lead a calmer, happier and more content life

How can you book a session?

If you are ready to talk about your anxiety and look for ways

to help you manage your anxiety

and stop your panic attacks

then please do get in touch today.

You can book an initial session at a reduced cost to help you decide if counselling is right for you.

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.

Based in Poole, Dorset I can work with you

Why have I got Anxiety?

Laura Knight on her therapy couch.jpg

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

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.


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


Thank you Laura for helping me manage my anxiety. I am now able to put myself into situations i couldn't before without  thinking I am going to have a panic attack

How long will I have to wait for my appointment?


Generally I can make an introductory appointment for you within a week.

Depending on my work load I can then book in your therapy sessions within a week to 4 weeks

Your Introductory session is at the reduced rate of £25 for 50 Mins, allowing us to meet each other and allow you to find out how we can work together​.

Future sessions will be at £50 for 50 Mins
