I had weekly sessions with Laura for three months and within the first two sessions Laura helped me start a difficult conversation that I struggled with for over a year. Her clear communication and practical advice was perfect for my autistic self, and her kindness and humour made the conversations something I look forward to, even when they were necessarily difficult. She is a skilled and caring therapist and I'd recommend her to anyone.

Laura Harris is an absolute gem. I would recommend her to anyone, for any type of personal work. Personally, I contacted her to help me recognize harming relationships and better deal with how they affect my life. To break free from my ego and start controlling my emotions, to head my life in the right direction. This is an immense task that I could not have accomplished on my own. Thank you.
