‘Why Chronic Stress, Anxiety & Overwhelm, Trauma & PTSD?’

‘They are increasingly found to affect people facing the multiple challenges of modern life; are deeply interconnected and rarely present as an alone problem, just sit at different levels of consciousness and awareness.

I conceptualise them as different layers of stress, and I have developed a model of work which addresses this complexity and helps individuals find a renewed sense of  balance’. 

Modern city living can be very stressful.

Pressures at work, with family and others can make us feel like we are living in a constant state of ‘fight or flight’, often experiencing severe worry and overwhelm.

When this adds to any pre-existing conditions, adversities or trauma, our mental health suffers. Our pain deepens, our bodies become fatigued and we can suddenly feel like we are ‘shutting dow.

But it does not have to be this way.

With years of experience in this field, we have the expertise to offer you a portfolio of tailored evidence-based therapies and psychological interventions to help you find a new balance and enjoy life again.

Let us help you. 


Stop stress, anxiety and trauma

 What people say about us 

I came to see Laura during a difficult time in my life which, like so many people, was compounded by the coronavirus pandemic and the difficulties that brought. Laura was a true professional throughout and really helped me to navigate these challenging times. Laura has a great intuition on when to employ a specific treatment type or technique and I felt that she always managed to strike the right balance between structure and flexibility. Her personable, conversational and positive personality combined to create a safe and honest environment for highly effective therapy

Laura was my saving grace as I had just suffered a severe burnout because of work stress. It was one of the biggest challenges of my life. Under her expert guidance and personable attitude, I went from having severe symptoms to no symptoms, and quite frankly to a much happier, and balanced version of me. Laura’s approach felt structural as we addressed the deep roots of my burnout, namely previous trauma. I had done therapy on this trauma before but I felt like Laura went much deeper, and with better results
