Her Approach

I am a curious person with a supportive nature. I enjoy learning, establishing my own true meaning of life, as well as deepening my understanding of myself and others. 

I have over ten years of experience working with vulnerable young people, many of whom struggle with their mental health. I have supported individuals to access counselling services and have seen the positive impact it has had on their lives.

Laura’s training background is focused on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT is a type of talking therapy which is commonly used to treat a range of mental health conditions. CBT focuses on how our emotions and behaviours are influenced by how we think and make sense of the world. 

I believe CBT can be hugely beneficial for someone to understand more about themselves and provide practical tools for them to incorporate into their everyday life, to ultimately improve their mental wellbeing.

Experience and Training

Laura is currently completing her Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at The Glasgow Cognitive Therapy Centre. Laura has previously completed her COSCA certificate in Counselling Skills at The University of Strathclyde. 

Laura is a member of COSCA (Counselling & Psychotherapy in Scotland) and is also PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) Registered with Disclosure Scotland.
