Laura Waters MBACP   laurawaterscounselling@outlook.com
          ME13, ME9,ME10         

 

I'm a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.  

 

I offer face to face counselling from the setting of Apotheca, which is located in Faversham, Kent (ME13 7JE).  If your preference is to work online, I can accommodate your wish with sessions on Microsoft TEAMS. 

 

I offer sessions on week days (Tues, Wed and Thurs) and also on Saturday mornings.  If it suits you better, I am happy for our sessions to be term time only.

 

I offer therapeutic counselling where we can work together in a safe space to help you move forward.  In my private practice I work with clients aged 18+.

 My fee is £45 per session.

"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." (Carl Rogers)

About me

I understand that life can feel overwhelming and it can be difficult to make sense of how you are feeling.  You may have experienced loss in your life, or feel anxious, low, stressed, judged or stuck.  I can provide you with a confidential space and an emphatic listening ear, where you can be yourself and express how you feel without judgement.  We can work together to work through any difficulties that you are facing.

I work mainly in a person-centred way, which means that I am led by you and your needs, and that our therapeutic relationship is key. I draw on other approaches depending on my clients needs and wishes for example, transactional analysis.  I also sometimes use creative methods such as using nesting dolls, buttons, etc, I have completed additional training in working with trauma.

 

I have successfully worked with a variety of issues such as anxiety, low mood, depression, relationships, low self-esteem, low-confidence, parenting, loss, and bereavement.  

I undertake at least 30 hours of CPD a year.

Alongside my private practice I also work with young people and adult learners in a college setting.  

How many sessions do I offer?

We can work together in either a long or short term way.  We would usually start with six sessions and then have a review to see how it is going.

Which days do I offer counselling?

I offer counselling on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Morning sessions are available on Saturdays.

What happens when you contact me?

I will offer you a free 20 minute consultation over Microsoft TEAMS.  Although we will not be able to go into depth, I will ask you about what you would like to bring to counselling and what your needs are.  You will have an opportunity to ask me any questions and see if I am the right fit for you.  If you wish to go ahead we would book in six initial sessions.  They would normally be for the same time each week.  I would recommend that you ensure that you have privacy during our consultation call.
