I’m Shirley, an Integrative Counsellor and Founder of Lau Counselling, who wants to help you understand your problems and encourage happier living by making meaningful changes.
Life isn’t always easy with its twists and turns. Often we want to be heard and understood by someone who can 'step into our shoes' to see our issues with compassion and understanding of what we're going through and help us make sense of our personal world.
I have a variety of skills however my main approaches to counselling is Person-Centred counselling and Psychodynamic counselling. Together we can look at your current issues and explore the causes of your problems.
What is Person-Centred counselling?
The Person-Centred approach fits my own philosophy that believes that each and every person can, and will, become a more fully functioning person if given the right conditions in understanding and exploring their issues.
What is Psychodynamic counselling?
Often you can find your problems routing from past experiences and relationships. Repeated patterns and behaviours can create conflict in later life. I find that by understanding what had happened in the past then it helps to understand the current issues and be encouraged to make changes for better living and happiness.
