Who are Poole Therapies & Associates Ltd.

Our services are tailored to support individuals, students, travelers and families, living, and working abroad.

We support all around the world whether in-country or abroad


Laura Clifford-Jones established Poole Therapies & Associates Ltd in 2019 to provide high quality and accessible counselling and mental health services when she gained the contract to run the in-house counselling service for and on behalf of the Anvil Group International (UK) now part of the Everbridge Group (2021), enabling them to fulfill various mental health contracts for Seven Corners, Fulbright Worldwide & USA, and other international organisations and universities.


Our vision is to provide non-judgmental mental health and counselling support and information all around the world. Whatever the reason for seeking help, we recognise that living, working, and studying abroad creates its own challenges and are distinct from those living, working, and studying at home.

I am immensely indebted to Laura Clifford Jones for providing a professional, client’s problem-centered focus and approach to counselling. Laura had been wonderful throughout the sessions with her keen listening and reflective problem solving based on my needs. I feel like living a new life after having been through therapy from her. I highly recommend her services for the future. Although this was the first-ever psychological help I sought and had trust issues. But right after the first few sessions, I was deeply satisfied to share everything and got phenomenal service from Laura. Many times I tried to be dependent on her but she was wonderful in handling my issues and enabling me to stand on my own and get the power to keep going in life smoothly. I wish I had approached these services earlier. Overall, I would give Laura 100/100 for all her support and patience keeping in view my needs. I once again really appreciate Laura for being such a huge support that gave me the courage to face life with a smiling face. Thanks

It was so refreshing to have a counsellor who really understood my issues, my frustrations, being able to access this service via Skype has really supported my ability to accept and move on from my trauma. Thank you for being there.

Thank you again, in earnest, for hearing and supporting me over the past months. I couldn't have done it without your help.

I can't thank Laura enough for all the support and psycho-education during our Skyped counselling sessions these past 6 months. 

You have helped me reframe parts of my experiences and reclaim my own personal story.

Thank you again

Neil is an extremely skilled therapist. He listens attentively and asks insightful questions. I learned so much from our 10 sessions together, he empowered me to set healthy boundaries in my life. Because of his approach, I now have a greater awareness and perspective I can make decisions that best serve my needs. I always felt respected and understood, it was clear that Neil cared for me as his client. I appreciate all of his help.

My experience with Poole Therapies & Associates has been absolutely stellar. I believe my counselor to be the perfect balance of compassionate, patient, and professional. I had spoken with 3 or 4 counselors over the last 7 years before meeting with him for the first time, and this is the first one that I’ve found to be truly helpful. We’ve been meeting regularly now for about 6 months, and it’s the first time I feel that therapy is truly working for me. Because of my unique circumstances, I really appreciate the convenience of meeting online and am so incredibly grateful to have found such a knowledgeable and skilled individual to help me navigate my first committed experience with counseling.
