Hello and welcome to my website.

My name is Laura Smart and I am a qualified Counsellor, Consultant, Clinical Hypnotherapist and Group Facilitator providing private one-to-one counselling, hypnotherapy, group work,  training and retreats with people from a multitude of backgrounds.

I work as an integrative counsellor and group facilitator trained and influenced by several approaches to counselling such as Gestalt (working with the Whole- body, mind and spirit), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and REBT (Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy) and VRET (Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy).

The areas I work with include:

  • addictions (substance abuse and alcoholism, internet, social media, gambling, shopping, relationships, work)

  • codependency

  • stress, anxiety, depression and general mental health and well being

  • anger management

  • grief and loss

  • fears and phobias

  • abuse (sexual, emotional, physical, spiritual)

  • trauma and dissociation

  • couples counselling and relationship difficulties

  • family and group therapy

  • inner child therapy

  • release therapy (emotional and energetic)

I work with a diverse range of clients, long and short-term; including people in recovery from alcohol and drugs and other addictions, codependency and relationship problems, mental health and emotional well-being issues and unresolved childhood experiences now resulting in unhealthy behaviours and patterns that are painful ,destructive and impacting the present.

Alongside my practice in London I also work in a rehabilitation treatment centre in Costa Blanca, Spain as a Consultant Counsellor and Clinical Hypnotherapist, and facilitate therapeutic retreats in Southern Spain and Italy.
