Do you ever think to yourself…

I need someone to talk to

You may feel as though there’s nobody in your life that you can really talk to or that you have something on your mind that you can’t express to your friends or family.

The people around you will often try to listen but you might find that they lack a genuine interest about what you’re saying and the way you feel. Even if you’re surrounded by others, being unheard can leave you burdened by your worries and feeling alone in the world.

I’m Laurence – an experienced, trained listener with a natural empathy and compassion for people who need someone to talk to. I offer a free telephone listening service to provide a safe and confidential space for you to talk about what’s on your mind.

I won’t offer advice or counseling. I’m simply here to listen to you, without judgment. I’ll give you the time and space you need to explore your emotions, organise your thoughts and help you to feel understood and validated.

“Being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person, they are almost indistinguishable.”

David Augsburger

How it works

Get in touch to say hi. I can answer any questions you might have and we can arrange a convenient day and time for a phone call of up to 45 minutes.

During the call, I’ll listen to what you have to say and encourage you to explore your thoughts and feelings to help you work out your options.


  • No. I’m simply here to listen to you in a non-judgmental way, providing a safe space to organise your thoughts and work through your options. I do not offer counseling, psychotherapy or give advice.
  • This is a free and confidential service. Donations are welcome but not necessary and will be used to help promote this service and reach more people who need to talk to someone.
  • Anyone who thinks to themselves, I need someone to talk to and would like to feel genuinely listened to.
  • Absolutely, I will listen to you without judgment and give you space to talk about anything that’s on your mind.
  • Yes. You don’t need to tell me any personal information about yourself if you don’t want to. Anything you say will be kept in confidence and no record of any conversations will be kept.
  • Calls last up to 45 minutes and we can arrange a time to speak again if you feel it would be helpful.
  • You can send me a message to check availability and arrange a time that suits you. I will then call you at that time on the number provided. If you’re unable to answer the call, I’ll email you to arrange another time.
  • That’s fine. You can cancel the call at any time.
