My name is Lauren Charlesworth (née Moore). I am a registered counsellor based in Cape Town’s West Coast/Blouberg area, and my services are also available to patients in the Northern Suburbs. I specialise in short-term therapy for adolescents, adults, and couples. For me, my patients’ well-being is of the utmost importance, and I go out of my way to ensure that every patient’s counselling journey is as comfortable and enriching as possible. I am fully aware that the choice to enter therapy, no matter the reason, is a difficult and sometimes painful decision, but I am here to hold your hand through the entire journey of healing. Change is possible – and together, we can achieve it! I offer a safe, non-judging space where patients can delve into and explore core issues that are preventing them from living their life to the fullest. I believe that every patient is an expert on their own life, and only through their willingness to adapt, can change take place. My aim is to be a co-facilitator on your journey to recovery.
