About me...

Hello, I'm Laura, a person-centred counsellor and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  I am also a certified coach.

In my practice, I offer a safe space for therapeutic change and growth, offering invaluable support during life's challenges. Whilst nurturing a compassionate and respectful relationship, I seek to encourage you to explore your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in a safe and non-judgmental space.

I firmly believe in the power of therapy to foster self-awareness and facilitate positive change. My approach is grounded in the principles of person-centred therapy, which means I follow your lead and encourage a deeper processing of self. However, I recognize that each person is unique, with their own needs and preferences. Therefore, we will work together in a way that is most suited to you, ensuring a personalized and effective therapeutic experience.

My journey to becoming a therapist has been enriched by life experiences, including living in Saudi Arabia for 7 years, before relocating to Dubai, where I currently live. These experiences have given me insight into both the joys and challenges of expat life, further shaping my understanding and approach as a therapist.

As a mother of two, I understand firsthand the complexities of balancing family life with personal growth. I bring this understanding into my practice, creating a nurturing and supportive space where you can feel safe to explore your experience without fear of judgment. 

Building a trusting and empathetic relationship with my clients is essential to me. I adhere to the ethical guidelines set forth by the BACP, ensuring the highest standards of professionalism and confidentiality.

Investing in therapy is investing in yourself—a journey towards a more fulfilling and meaningful life. Together, we can make sense of your world as it is now and work towards positive change. I invite you to take the first step towards a brighter tomorrow by reaching out to me.  You can book a free 30 minute initial session with me, using the details below.

I look forward to walking alongside you on your path to healing and growth.

"Laura is very intuitive and guided me through the sessions in a really patient and non-judgemental way. 

Laura has a lovely calming manner and put me at ease straight away. It's often difficult to show others your vulnerability, but it was so beneficial for me to show this to Laura and she created a safe and supportive environment to allow me to be vulnerable. 

I really appreciate all the sessions we did together and thank you so much"
