Lauren has literally helped transform my life. I went to see her at a time of incredible vulnerability, and under her care I blossomed into someone who is confident, thriving and happy.
Lauren gave me hope during a very unpredictable time in my life. Amidst all the uncertainty however, I was sure of one thing: Lauren’s professional support. This knowledge afforded me a lot of peace of mind. Lauren was someone I could rely on. She was always kind to me and fostered a very safe counselling environment. Within this environment, she challenged me to examine and evaluate my thoughts and beliefs, encouraged me to celebrate my triumphs and learn from my losses.
Lauren helped me take away meaning from the turbulence. By making me aware of my strengths and capabilities, she helped me empower myself. I enjoyed my counselling sessions with her- often they were fun. She built a wonderful rapport with me, and never judged me. She also demonstrated great cultural awareness and sensitivity, as I am not originally from Australia, which makes her quite different and unique from other counsellors I have encountered. I think Lauren is an excellent mental health professional and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
