"the truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize the situation is over, you cannot move forward” (Steve Maraboli)
I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor who works with both adolescents and adults in the Cape surrounds, more specifically the West Coast area. For those who are not in the West coast area, I additionally offer online counselling. Please have a look at my website for some more information regarding this www.laurenmoorecounselling.co.za
I have experience in dealing with a variety of issues and can assist patients suffering from addiction, trauma, eating disorders, stress, depression, anxiety, and more. I also specialize in couples’ therapy in Cape Town, to help couples who have drifted apart to communicate more effectively with one another again.
I began my career in the eating disorder and addictions fields and gained several years of experience by working with individuals suffering from various challenges such as addiction, alcoholism, depression, anxiety management, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, eating disorders and various other illnesses.
I work in an engaging way with my clients. It is through mutual engagement and my focus on the patient-therapist-relationship that I help patients explore their issues, traumas and/or challenges. Through this self-exploration, I attempt to help patients achieve a greater understanding of themselves.
I am a firm believer in the premise that it is only through awareness of ourselves that we can become fully aware of the challenges we face and thus tackle and overcome these challenges in an informed way.
