Laura Mackay Psychotherapy


Welcome to

Laura Mackay Psychotherapy

A confidential space to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life

Contemporary Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis

I am UK Council for Psychotherapy accredited and registered (UKCP), working in private practice in Truro, Cornwall. I am a Member of The Council for Psychoanalysis & Jungian Analysis College (CPJA). I am also a member of the College of Psychoanalysts (CP-UK) and the Academy for Psychoanalysis. I have worked within the NHS’s mental health system, as part of Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and take referrals from Community Mental Health Teams (CMHT). I completed my post-graduate training at the Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis and am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy.

I have worked with individuals with a range of difficulties including relationship problems and addiction, gender, bereavement, a loss of meaning or purpose in life, depression, eating disorders and self-harm, anxiety and panic attacks.

I offer a secure space to discuss whatever is on your mind. If you are in a crisis or experiencing more long-term difficulties then having a regular time and place to talk to a psychotherapist in a confidential setting can be helpful.

About Laura


Over the last twenty years, I have been working with individuals and groups in the field of mental health, before more recently specialising in Psychoanalysis.

Alongside my private practice, I have worked for several years as a psychotherapist at CAMHS and at the Site South West Psychoanalytic Clinic which provides long term therapy for people on very low incomes. I have been an active member of the organisation of The Site For Contemporary Psychoanalysis in the South West.

Consultation & Fees

I usually suggest that someone interested in therapy comes along for an initial conversation. At the first meeting we will discuss the presenting issue and how we might work together. There is always space for questions and any concerns.

Practicalities such as session times and frequency will also be discussed.

Face to face, video call or telephone. My full fee is £60, but I operate a sliding scale for those who need to negotiate the amount. This is discussed at the initial consultation.

How To Find Me

My practice is located in central Truro. The City of Truro in Cornwall has excellent transport links by train to Truro Station.
