"When I first met Laurence my life felt incredibly bleak. A recent bereavement had caused an overwhelming sense of sadness and hopelessness that was affecting every aspect of my life. To even acknowledge that I needed help was to show a vulnerability that I had spent over 50 years avoiding. It is a credit to Laurence’s warmth, insight and humour that I found our sessions not only effective but genuinely enjoyable. For the first time in my life I feel comfortable in my own skin and I know that it’s ok not to be ok all of the time. Laurence has taught me how to recognise when I’m starting to feel overwhelmed and has helped me to find real life, practical strategies to even out my moods and energy levels."

Covid 19 is having a effect on all of us whether through the lockdown or through the uncertainties that have been created by the pandemic. 

This unprecedented situation in our lifetime will bring many challenges. Learning to be more resilient and maintaining mental health in difficult situations are aspects that talking therapy can help you with. 

Our reactions to these stressors can be varied. If you feel that you are struggling with difficult emotions or unhealthy behaviours,
