About me

Hello. My name is Lauren. I understand just how daunting it can be to reach out to a therapist; someone you don't know – especially when you are struggling to get by. Sometimes there are no words when things get really hard, and sometimes there are nothing but words. I want to hear your story in whatever way you can tell it, and even if you can't find a way, I want to be there with you anyway; to be a warm, gentle, compassionate presence so you are not on your own.

I practise relational, developmental integrative psychotherapy because it allows me to adapt my way of working to each person as an individual. The world so often asks us to shape who we are to fit in; my hope is to provide therapy that seeks to find and welcome you exactly as you are.

I seek to create a safe, non-judgemental, welcoming space for you to feel heard, seen and accepted. I see all people as shaped and moulded by their experience of the world and those around them, and seek to offer clarity, understanding and support in your journey.
