Laura Greenwood, founder of Huddersfield-based maternal, paternal and family mental health clinic, Laura Greenwood Therapy, has been shortlisted in the Health and Wellbeing category of the Enterprise Vision Awards (EVA). The UK’s largest business awards are dedicated solely to women.

The EVA awards, sponsored by NatWest, are about championing women who are shaping the future of entrepreneurship and are beacons of inspiration for the next generation of entrepreneurs. They celebrate women who are a driving force for change, who are building businesses and creating a positive impact by making a real difference in our communities.

Laura Greenwood Therapy, a psychotherapy and wellbeing clinic specialising in maternal, paternal & family mental health for individuals and businesses, was established in 2022 when Laura left the NHS and pursued her mission to change how we value and support parents in society.

Since then, she has grown the clinic to a team of 10 and has empowered over 1,000 people to overcome mental health difficulties and step into their true selves, through individual and group therapy, and psychoeducational talks. Laura successfully launched her first online live course in 2024, to deliver more affordable ways of accessing her evidence-based approach to help mothers find their true selves. The second cohort will start in September and the course will run twice per year.

Laura says, “I am so proud to have been recognised for this national award, where so many incredible women are being celebrated. I am and will continue to change the world, one parent at a time.  I personally believe that makes me a worthy winner but whether I win or not, honestly, I know I am already a winner in the eyes of the parents and families me and my team have supported. I am going to change the way we support and value parents within our society.  I’m already doing it.  Whilst not compromising my own mental health or values, including motherhood.  I am being the change I want to see.  Showing others, that it’s possible to achieve your dreams and ambitions, without compromise.  To show how to be a heart-centred leader and start and grow a business without burning yourself out.”

The winners of the awards will be announced at a glittering award ceremony in Blackpool on September 27th.
