Hello, I’m Lauren!

I am a registered Counsellor, an accredited Strategic Psychotherapist, a Clinical Hypnotherapist, an EFT Tapping Practitioner and certified Coach.

With a Masters degree in Counselling and a Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and Strategic Psychotherapy, I am registered with the Australian Counselling Association and am a Founding Member of the International Strategic Psychotherapists Association.

In today's fast-paced environment, we are constantly surrounded by technology and social media, leading to feelings of overwhelm and stress. Endless work days filled with emails and notifications that feel relentless can make it challenging to maintain balance. Though stress and anxiety are natural responses, they can become problematic and negatively impact your mental and physical health.

If you're tired of feeling perpetually on edge and are looking for a way to regain control, my services can help. I provide support to help you develop effective strategies for managing stress or anxiety, fostering a healthier and more fulfilling life.


Don’t let stress and emotional overwhelm rule your life any longer—start your journey towards balance today.

My journey to holistic therapy began after years of battling overwhelming anxiety. Through my own healing process, I discovered the transformative power of addressing the mind-body connection and the role of the autonomic nervous system in regulating emotions.

Now, I'm here to share these tools and techniques with you, empowering you to experience the same sense of relief and empowerment that I have.

Your commitment is essential, and my commitment is to help you achieve the results you want as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Now is the time to take action.

I view anxiety and stress as a complex interplay between the body and mind.

Our brains and bodies develop certain behavioural and thought patterns in response to anxiety and stress, which reinforce the experience of anxiety. This pattern then continues to cycle.

When your nervous system is balanced, you can create new neural pathways by identifying these patterns and implementing effective strategies to break them.

Why is my approach effective?

As an Accredited Strategic Psychotherapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist, I can help you manage your stress and channel your thoughts into positive actions.

We will begin with balancing your nervous system so that your body feels safe, and then work on your unconscious thought patterns that are keeping you stuck.

My techniques are tried, tested, and proven. We can address past issues if needed, but our primary focus will be on changing current behaviours and thought patterns for a more useful and fulfilling life.


My approach:

Uses a body-mind holistic approach.

Implements evidence-based practices and holistic methods.

Focuses on the present and the future.

Ensures you have control over your experience.

Can provide faster results than other methods of therapy, as it is solution focused.

(Some clients see substantial improvements after just one session, most have a lasting result in just four to ten sessions.)

It's possible for you to:

✨ Learn how to immediately reduce your stress and anxiety.

✨ Cultivate a sense of internal control and confidence.

✨ Implement practices contributing to better sleep, promoting a more rested and rejuvenated state.

✨ Enhance your self-awareness, paving the way for improved decision-making and a more purposeful life.

Find balance and joy in your life...

You can transform your stress & overwhelm, and step towards a life that feels balanced and joyful.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect during a session?

You can expect a safe and supportive environment where you can openly explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Together, we'll work collaboratively to identify goals and develop strategies to help you overcome challenges and achieve emotional wellbeing.

Our sessions will run for 50 minutes, each tailored to suit your needs. You will be coached, alongside of the use of nervous system balancing techniques, EFT tapping and clinical hypnotherapy. At the end of each session, you will leave with the expectation that you will listen back to the recordings provided and participate in the App led nervous system balancing tools.

What tools/techniques and modalities do you use?

This program is guided by evidence-based techniques and expertise in holistic therapy. As a qualified counsellor with a Master's degree in Counselling, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to support you on your journey to ease your anxiety.  Additionally, my advanced training in coaching, clinical hypnotherapy, strategic psychotherapy, and EFT tapping further enhances my ability to provide effective support tailored to your needs. With a commitment to ongoing learning and professional development, you can trust that you're in capable hands throughout this transformative journey. 

Hypnotherapy can manage stress by targeting thought patterns and behaviours that contribute to it. Hypnosis integrates new strategies and positive messages into the unconscious mind, making them more accessible when needed.

Clients often report feeling more relaxed and in control after sessions.

What happens at the end of the program?

1. You will not only better understand your nervous system and your body's response to stress, but you will also be equipped with a toolkit of balancing techniques to continue using at home.

2. You will also have the App to continue using until the end of three months from sign-up. 

What is Strategic Psychotherapy?

Strategic psychotherapy is a form of therapy that focuses on the present and future, rather than the past. I aim to help my clients to identify and change problematic underlying patterns of behaviour, thoughts and emotions that have been holding them back from achieving specific goals in their life. I focus on how you do things, not why. By gaining this understanding of how, you can begin to make rapid changes.

My aim is that you ‘do’ better in life, not just ‘feel’ better. The power is in the action. A huge benefit of strategic psychotherapy is that it is a short-term and solution-focused form of therapy, with results generally seen within 4 to 10 sessions (depending on the individual client’s needs). Unlike other therapies, I intend on seeing you do better in life in a very short period of time.

Am I right for this program?

If you have been experiencing stress or anxiety in your life and want to learn practical tools to help ease these sensations in your body, this is the right program for you.

Is this in-person or online?

Either! You can book an in-person session with me if the location of Braeside is convenient for you. However, evidence has shown that online therapy is equally as effective as in-person. If you prefer an online session, this will be done over Zoom. You can choose the location when you make a booking. You will just need to make sure you have a quiet and private space for the duration of the session time.

What is the app I will use?

As a qualified Nervous System Fitness Coach, I use the NeuroFit App. You will be granted three months access to this app when you join the program. I will assist you to get started in the App and show you how to use it. The App includes tracking of your heart rate variability, provides guidance over the best techniques to use and guides you to understand how to identify the different nervous system states and your body's response.

Can I get Medicare rebates via a Mental Health Care Plan?

As a registered counsellor, I do not offer rebates through Medicare or Mental Health Care Plans. If you wish to use these services, please contact your GP for a psychologist referral.

Can I pay in installments?

Yes. The total price is $650. The first session payment will be $200. When you book sessions 2,3 and 4, you will pay $150 each upon booking. Payment upon booking is required.

What if I have more questions?

You can book a 15 minute phone call before your first session to get your questions answered. We can chat and work out a plan that will suit your needs. You can find the link here.

What is the cancellation policy?

When cancelled within 24 hours, an $80 fee applies. This program runs over 6 consecutive weeks. All sessions must be completed within 6 weeks of the first appointment.
