Welcome. My name is Lauren. I am an experienced Psychosynthesis Counsellor. Psychosynthesis is a liberating practice, a map to help navigate human experience and a toolbox for life. I believe in the transformative potential of our pain, crises, challenges or stuckness and offer clients the opportunity to discover and reclaim more of who they are which can foster a greater sense of wellbeing and rootedness.
I work with a wide range of presenting issues from loss of meaning in life through to complex trauma.
At the heart of the work is the quality of the relationship between you and I. I will always endeavour to provide a safe and supportive space where trust can develop between us to nurture your unfolding process. As such, I encourage having an initial session where we can meet one another to see how it feels to work together.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
