Over 2 Years Post-Registration Experience

Hi. I am Laura Rutlidge. I'm a registered counsellor - I support individuals with their emotional wellbeing. I have private and public sector experience as a counsellor.

What to Expect

A preliminary assessment session enables you to see if you are comfortable with me, discuss what worries you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and assess if therapy could help you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an introductory assessment appointment in Crosby, Liverpool.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your emotions and actions. It recognises and addresses negative ideas which perpetuate the problems you encounter. The objective of CBT is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) indicates cognitive behavioural therapy for alcohol dependence, anorexia nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder (BED), bipolar disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), bulimia nervosa, depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), self harm, social anxiety disorder and substance dependence.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine which issue concerning your childhood and/or adult life you discuss. An objective of counselling is to enable you to talk about a problem and discover a solution which is appropriate for you.

Thoughts on Mental Health

If your partner constantly criticises you, undermines your decisions or laughs at you, rather than with you, when you make a mistake, this can result in the lowering of your self-esteem. Sometimes your partner may not be aware of the effect of their actions; at other times this behaviour can be used by a partner as a means of control, and may be classed as emotional abuse. If this is happening to you, it is important to seek help or support from family and friends. Counselling can also help you with deal with these issues. You and your counsellor would work together to help rebuid your self esteem and provide support to help you make any changes you feel are needed in your life.
