Laurence Milburn

I work as a Mindfulness Facilitator, Counsellor and Psychotherapist privately, and in the voluntary sector where I specialise in addictions and trauma.
I trained as integrative counsellor and I draw on a wide range of therapeutic perspectives and my work is grounded in a client centred and collaborative approach. I believe that given the right conditions and support we all have an intrinsic ability to heal and make wise choices.
I have been fascinated by the meeting points between meditation reflective practices and therapy and have intergrated mindfulness into my theraputic work. My interest in both Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Developmental Trauma (difficulties relating to experiences early in life) has led me to train in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, an approach specifically tailored to help overcome trauma and developmental issues.
Throughout my life I have been interested in making meaning of and deepening my connection with living. I started meditating 25 years ago and this practice has been instrumental for my personal growth and well- being. I have found that a mindfulness practice has helped me engage with the everyday ups and downs of work and family life and in particular has resourced me with a greater sense of open heartedness towards myself and others. I enjoy nature, the arts, cooking, football and spending time with my friends and family.
