Laurele is a qualified person-centred counsellor with fourteen years’ experience in counselling and mental health. She has worked in a variety of different settings, including an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) and the NHS, as well as a number of different voluntary organisations.
While counselling can help with most issues, and while Laurele has worked with many of them, she is most experienced in working with mental health issues, from stress, including work-related stress, to anxiety and depression to bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. She also has a lot of experience working with people who self-harm or who are suicidal, as well as those who have experienced domestic abuse and trauma.
The other area in which Laurele is most experienced is relationships, including relationships with family, friends, significant others and self. She is particularly interested in personal development and how we can work through difficult issues from childhood, including issues with abandonment and attachment, using self-awareness and self-compassion. Laurele strives to create a safe space in which you can work together on exploring what has brought you to counselling at this time.
