About Laura Clifford-Jones
“Helping you to achieve good mental health, growth and restoration”
Hi I’m Laura and like so many other people I too have had to deal with life’s up’s and down’s to a greater or lesser degree over years, sometimes the situations caused me to revert back to my now old copying strategies, such as General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), an Eating Disorder, Self-Sabotage and closing down by shutting my family and the world out.
After a close family bereavement I realised this was not the way in which I wanted to live my life from now on, so I took a ‘leap of faith’ (this was very hard at the beginning), moving out of my comfort zone and headlong into the Big Wild World of Personal Development and Therapy.
In 2012 I started my Counselling, Coaching and Mental Health training and became a qualified counsellor and coach in July 2016, since then I have continued my training to extend my knowledge, skills and expertise. I am also a qualified, mental health and leadership and management tutor/trainer and assessor
I now work as a Pluralistic Counsellor & Coach and am a member of The British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), my philosophy is everyone should be treated with respect, unconditional positive regards and have the autonomy to decide how to live their lives with this in mind I work with you to find the best way in helping you to work through your issues by combing all the skills and tools from different theoretical approaches including Person Centred, CBT, NLP, Solution Focused, Gestalt.
