Cherry Laurel Prunus laurocerasus - not happy!

Hello there,
We have just sadly had to lose a huge magnificent horse chestnut tree which dominated the garden and put part of it in semi-shade for most of the time. It looks like our small 'tree' Cherry Laurel - Prunus laurocerasus - which is about 10 feet tall has taken this sudden extra light and exposure badly. Most of the leaves have dropped and the ones remaining looks unhappy. I can't yet see new growth and desperately hope it's not going to die.
Can anyone offer hope - or ideas as to what it would welcome to help it adjust?
Thank you in anticipation. :D

Where do you live? What is the weather like right now?
Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.

Hi - I live in Derbyshire and the weather is very wet and quite cold - about 8 degrees. Thanks
