Finding the right counsellor is important and together we can look at what it is you are finding difficult. I offer an initial 20-minute telephone call with no obligation to commit to ongoing sessions. You can raise any questions you may have and take some time to decide if counselling with me is right for you.

Counselling children

I work with children in a non-directive way and have a range of creative play materials available. I offer a safe environment and a warm, non-judgmental relationship to allow the child to express themselves as they choose.

Parent/Carer support

With over 9 years experience, I offer a parent/carer consultation service to understand, and identify with, the issues you are worried about for your young person. Together we can look at how past relationships, developmental difficulties or present circumstances are impacting on your young person and look at finding other ways to support them or understand their actions, feelings or thoughts.

"I just wanted to thank you for working with me. The sessions have been so helpful and have allowed me a relaxed, safe space to connect and work through how I am feeling. You have given me some useful strategies for coping and I really appreciated how you were able to reflect back what I was saying"


'In my very first session, Laraine helped shine a light on issues I'd struggled to perceive for years. Over the following weeks, she guided me towards making the first steps towards a personal breakthrough.'
