Natacha Lawrie MA Psychotherapy & Counselling, PGdip.
A warm welcome to you.
Please visit my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/TachaLawrieLancaster/ for more information.
My private practice is situated in the heart of Lancaster 5 minutes from the train station. A comfortable, peaceful and restful environment.
My approach to psychotherapy is that I work with you in a way that is respectful, non-judgmental, sensitive and warm. I believe that you have an inner sense of truth and wisdom within but need the space, stillness and unconditional presence to gain your own insights, autonomy and meaning.
Chronic feelings of anxiety and depression, overwhelming loneliness, grief and loss, persistent feelings of low self worth, stuck relationships, emotional suffering, stress and trauma are explored gently and offer potential portals for becoming more in contact with our essential and true self bringing more peace and fulfilment to our lives.
I work with both individuals of all ages and also young people who can often feel very alone with outward pressures and who need support to gain more inner awareness and self belief to move forward.
We all wish to grow as human beings moving towards our potential and opening more deeply to the here and now of our experience, the intimacy of life. We are often lost in limiting thoughts-thoughts that are imprisoning and reactive and which induce negative feelings.

Photos & videos
I charge £40 per session which is for 60 minutes. If this is difficult for you or your circumstances are such that this is too much we can reach a mutually acceptable figure.
Taking that first step for change can often feel really daunting. It takes courage and I will be here accompanying you whatever age or circumstances you find yourself in with a solid presence that I hope will provide safety and deep empathy for you to heal and move forward with your life.
