Laura SteventonSolution-focused therapy therapist
I guide people who feel dissatisfied with their lives to uncover and transform the underlying reasons for this, so that they can create a more fulfilled, meaningful life filled with vitality and purpose.
I am Laura, a practitioner of BWRT (Brain Working Recursive Therapy) as well as being skilled in advanced psycho- and hypnotherapy techniques to help you achieve the results and transformation that you are looking for.
It could be that you're not even sure if you need therapy or if what you are feeling is just part of life, loss, marriage, parenting, adulthood... maybe even the state of the world.
I hear that a lot!
Racing thoughts, tight chest, difficulty catching your breath, less than 7 hours of consistent sleep a night, lack of motivation, feeling low more often than you feel joyful, fearing situations where you can't be in control, overachieving, drinking to relieve stress, putting on a smile when inside you want to crumble, feeling hopeless, talentless, uninspired or snapping and getting frustrated over seemingly small things... all or any of these things mean that there's something going on with you and you may benefit from some support.
How do I know this so well?
Simply... I have been there. I have got tons of life experience under my belt.
From burnout due to such low self-esteem that the only way I could make myself feel better was by being a workaholic, giving and giving, pushing myself more and more. To panic attacks, social anxiety, chronic stress to the point I had an emotional breakdown, infertility and miscarriage plus going through a divorce. I've also moved countries more than once, I've been involved with addicts more than I care to remember, been bullied and I've worked in corporate (need I say more there?!).
So, believe me, when I tell you, I can relate to many many things that cause and result in emotional and mental conditions and breakdowns.
Importantly though, I have done the searching and the learning to find the solutions and the methodology to bring healing to myself and now to you. BWRT was one of the most significant therapies that I have undertaken in order to create real change in my life. It wasn't instant but it got stronger and stronger until I was able to do things that I was unable to before... like set boundaries, say no, speak to people. These may sound like small things but the impact that they had on my life was huge!
Now, I support and guide others to achieve the transformations or support that they require. As a therapist, we face the hard work, in a way that supports your specific therapy journey, we don't only talk but strategise solutions that will work for you.
