About me

Laura is a somatic psychotherapist, counsellor, yoga teacher and bodyworker who believes creative expression and movement are the most potent medicine. With more than a decade of experience in body-based therapies, Laura is dedicated to love, self-empowerment, inspiration, service and connection. Laura support individuals who are seeking to transform stress, trauma, anxiety, PTSD and depression through a somatic & spiritually-oriented approach to therapy. She uses a somatic approach by reducing ... stress and anxiety physiologically, through changing the autonomic nervous system & discharging trauma and by working with embodiment practices. She works with a non-dual lens that mind, body, spirit are one, that each individual is already whole & supporting the removal of obstacles in the way. She describes herself as empathetic, open minded, grounded, kind-hearted, authentic, strength-based, reliable and a deep listener. Her forte is working with the body-mind from a somatic and embodied approach - from “bottom up” rather than “top down” – by reducing stress and anxiety physiologically, through changing the autonomic nervous system and discharging trauma, rather than just using a cognitive or talk therapy approach. Laura believes that by working together, you will recover abandoned parts of yourself and embody the inner resources needed to move through life with greater empowerment. Laura's sessions integrate a blend of bodywork, somatic humanistic psychology, trauma-informed care, yogic philosophy, process work, psychotherapy, movement education & expressive arts. She also weaves in her background of working with many cultures, lineages and traditions . Her work is a trauma informed, strengths based & person centred model of care. Her aim is to empower and support you with your journey while offering somatic resources and tools to transform and build capacity to be with what is arising for you. Laura's work draws upon her background in counselling, holistic humanistic psychotherapy, anthropology and her Masters in Cultural Heritage, which was inspired by her involvement in multiple communities abroad. Laura loves to be of service to others and to witness how people can heal themselves, realising that they don’t have to be stuck and can come back to alignment and healing in a grounded way. Her work also helps her to be centred, humbled and connected to her own path. Read more

Embodied Psychotherapy - Initial Consult

The structure of a session, like the Dao, is a formless form. It’s a collaboration between practitioner and client as both embark on an expedition ... of discovery into the unknown parts of the psyche. A deep respect for what is permeating the field as each symptom, reaction and disturbance is allowed to be explored. There is often an invisible hand guiding the session as troubles and concerns are given their space. Unlike traditional psychotherapy, there is a certain vibrancy to the work; one minute we might be sitting and talking, the next we’re up role playing in the archetypes, the next we’re drawing an ‘energy sketch’, the next we’ve entered a dream and are imagining ways in which it could be re-dreamt. As such, process work is a dance between the creative and the receptive, a dance that moves to the rhythm of each individual soul. In the background is the premise that, as living beings, we are all constantly changing and evolving. Behind this is the sense that each disturbing force that arises into this space is a part of the desire of the self for more wholeness; the allowance of more and more parts into one’s totality.

Private Yoga Session

My method is a combination of meditation, inquiry, asana, free movement, pranayama, and somatics that are based in the tantric philosophy of ... Kashmir Shaivism and self inquiry, curiosity and desire to harness our human potential to realise a more embodied self. I also adopt and weave in the incredible meridian-based healing arts of China along with the five element theory. The five element theory is a practical system which demonstrates how we engage with the cycles of nature. Knowledge of the five elements allows the yogi to understand the laws of nature and to use yoga to attain greater health, power, knowledge, wisdom and happiness. This arises out of deep intuition of how the universe operates. Yoga can be dynamic, restorative, fluid or simply a mental practice. I can build a personalised yoga program according to your lifestyle, your body and needs. The program can include yoga philosophy, pranayama (breath control), somatics, embodiment practices, meditation, body awareness and the energetic aspects of yoga. I offer corporate, small groups and private one on one sessions. Read more

Whilst diving into the art of deep listening we move and work with stagnated parts.
