About me

Hi, I'm Lauren, I am a Therapeutic Coach and Lightning Process Practitioner. I am here to help you move forwards with your life and reconnect with that ‘inner oomph’ - the part of you that makes you who you really are! I work with a range of issues, but my specialities are:

  • Confidence
  • Motivation
  • Energy
  • Empowerment
  • Stress and burnout (avoidance of and bouncing back from)

Health, wellness and performance are all part of the same mix, and I have direct experience of turning around stress and burnout related chronic health. My focus is always on getting the 'best you' out there possible, and I also I enable high-performing individuals to achieve their goals using the best mindset, and in the best health possible. My goal is to get you back up and running in as few sessions as possible, ideally two or three but, generally speaking, no more than 6-8 sessions.

1-2-1 Coaching:

Once we've established an understanding of the issue, my top priority in every session is finding a way to move past the issue and find a way forward. Ultimately, my primary concern is getting you, and your life, back on track. You can expect to leave each session feeling motivated and equipped for the future. I offer Skype coaching, as well as face to face coaching in Brighton and Hove.

The Lightning Process®:

This is a three day neuro-physiological training programme that gives people the tools and skills they need to change their health and wellbeing for the better. It is unlike anything I have ever previously come across when it comes to resolving issues that don't seem to respond to other more common forms of therapy. I offer the Lightning Process in Brighton, Farnham and Reading.

Getting in touch:

Having experienced, and directly turned issues around myself, I’m here to help you move forwards with your life. So, if you have any questions about your own situation or how I may be able to help, please get in touch by telephone or email, or why not request a free 20 minute consultation.

Coaching testimonials

“I’ve had coaching form Lauren several times over the last year or so and she’s helped me make some profound shifts in different areas of my life. In my business she helped me overcome my long-held fear of marketing, and a belief that I was rubbish at that side of my business. As a direct result of this I am now confidently doing lots of brave marketing on a regular consistent basis, which means my income stream is now a lot more predictable, as I am generating the leads I need all the time. She’s also helped me overcome deep-rooted anxiety around different issues in my business and health, and this has enabled me to go out into the work and be who I am meant to be. Lauren without doubt is a highly skilled coach with an innate talent for what she does. She was born to do this work and has a tremendously deep passion to help people live their fullest lives. We all have beliefs that don’t help us, and patterns of learned behaviour that hold us back – work with Lauren and you’ll never look back!” - SH, Nottinghamshire

“I had a couple of NLP sessions with Lauren as I had been experiencing agoraphobia. Lauren was very professional and helped me to feel comfortable talking about my issues, which I had not spoken to many people about before. After having an initial taster session, I already started to experience change. I felt much more relaxed, and able to make changes myself, which I hadn’t perceived as possible before. We had a couple of NLP sessions shortly after, and I felt I had stepped into a much more positive and empowering energy. Within the same week, I had been using techniques that Lauren had taught me to help keep me calm and connected with positive energy, and subsequently I found a new job, and career change, which I now actually look forward to going to, and I feel much happier. NLP is a versatile therapy and I highly recommend Lauren as a practitioner to people looking for help with any aspect of their life. Thank you, Lauren.” – FS.

“Over the years I’ve tried many different forms of therapy however had always come away feeling dissatisfied and still ‘stuck’ in the past. I’d been sceptical about NLP and had never considered trying it as a form of therapy however, I thought I’d give it a go and I’m so glad I did! I really didn’t think it’d have any effect on me but I was wrong. Lauren uses a sensitive and pragmatic approach when dealing with painful subjects which I found really refreshing and surprisingly effective. After just two sessions with Lauren I felt like I’d turned a corner which felt amazing … I would definitely recommend Lauren.” – Anon, East Sussex

Lightning Process testimonials:

“I attended the Lightning process seminar with Lauren a couple of months ago, I was a little sceptical to be completely honest but having been down most other avenues I thought it was worth a go. What can i say… it was totally life changing for me and Lauren is my absolute hero ….. she was so inspirational and supportive, I have never met anyone quite like her and I am so grateful for what she has given me. I now have a new way of thinking and living, I’m able to eat a thousand more things and keep my pain under control, my future looks positive for the first time in years. I feel like i have a mental toolbox to take with me for the rest of my life. Thank you Lauren from the very bottom of my heart x" – Jooles, Surrey

“Before my teenager son started the Lightning Process with Lauren I was skeptical. The online testimonials looked too good to be true. However, faced with a child whose life was being affected and limited by ME, we decided to go ahead with it. After day 1, I was worried as the immediate change that some of the testimonials mentioned wasn’t happening with my son. Day 2 & 3 saw some gradual changes and over the next few days and weeks some milestones were reached like walking to school for the first time in months, walking the dog, being able to concentrate longer in lessons, socialising with friends etc. We’re now just over a month post LP course and it feels I have my old son back. The nausea has gone, the overwhelming weariness has vanished, the aches and pains are a thing of the past. The ongoing support that Lauren offers after the course is a great way to keep on track and also very reassuring” – Claire H
