"No matter how arduous the path may be, I walk next to my clients on their journey to wellness with compassion, patience, and optimism. My personal and professional experience has demonstrated to me the importance of building a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients, showing them that they can move from a place of doubt and despair to one of hopefulness, self-belief, and ultimately happiness."

About Me
Research & Publications

I am a Counselling Psychologist who provides evidence-based interventions for a range of difficulties including anxiety, bereavement/loss, depression, loneliness, low self-esteem, phobias, complex trauma, work-related stress and eating disorders.

I have experience working from a range of different therapeutic modalities with both children and adults. I see everyone as unique. I am passionate about tailoring my approach to meet the specific needs of my individual clients. I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to explore their difficulties and I believe in the importance of collaborative decision-making. My clients’ wellbeing is central, every step of the way.

With extensive training in a number of different psychological therapies, Lauren is an integrative practitioner who flexibly adapts her interventions to effectively meet her client’s needs.

She has worked with clients experiencing a wide range of psychological difficulties, including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, perfectionism, interpersonal difficulties, exam/work-related stress, eating disorders, emotional dysregulation, behavioural difficulties, ADHD and autism. Lauren works with children, young people, and adults. She offers both online and face-to-face therapy.

Lauren has experience working in both the NHS and in the private sector, providing psychological treatment to individuals and families, across the lifespan. In particular, she has been involved in the assessment and diagnosis of autism and ADHD in children and young people, working with those struggling with eating disorders and with young people in crisis. She has been trained to work holistically, ensuring that she sensitively considers her clients’ mental and physical health, any neurodevelopmental differences they may have, and their life experiences, in the context of their culture and environment.

Lauren follows an integrative, pluralistic approach to psychological therapy in which she draws on several different therapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Person-Centred Therapy, Systemic Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy. She has facilitated reflective spaces for professionals and provides teaching on a number of different issues.

Passionate about cultural humility, equity and inclusion, Lauren has experience working with people across a range of cultures and from different walks of life.
