I value patients as individuals, and use my integrative training, experience and knowledge to adapt to clients’ needs. I understand how difficult it can be for patients to attend therapy and use my non-judgemental attitude, and friendly and emphatic personality to create a warm environment for patients to openly explore their difficulties.
Laura joined Priory Hospital Chelmsford in March 2018 as a child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS) and adult therapist. She is a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist. Laura has over 10 years’ experience of providing psychological therapy, including working for the NHS, charity organisations and in private practice in the UK and Singapore. Laura is integratively trained, which means that she is trained in numerous therapeutic approaches, and she is, therefore, able to individualise treatment based on how her clients like to work, and the difficulties that they are facing.
Laura initially trained as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist at The Victoria Counselling and Training Service, where she undertook a Certificate in Counselling Skills, Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Her interest in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) led to her also undertaking a Postgraduate Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at University of Essex and a Master of Science (MSc) in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at University of Oxford. She undertakes regular continued professional development.
