Meet the team

Lauren Charlesworth
(nee’ Moore)

Lauren Moore, founder of Lauren Moore Counselling, is dedicated to guiding clients toward their most fulfilling lives.

With a background in eating disorders and addiction, Lauren brings years of experience assisting individuals facing diverse challenges, from addiction and depression to low self-esteem and eating disorders.

Through her engaging approach and emphasis on the patient-therapist relationship, Lauren fosters an environment where clients can explore their issues and traumas, leading to deeper self-understanding and transformation.

“Through counseling and self-reflection, I’ve witnessed incredible transformations in my clients. The cornerstone of successful counseling, in my view, is the relationship we build together—a safe, confidential space where we can address core issues and traumas.”

As a mother of three, Lauren also specializes in maternal mental health and relationship counseling, bringing a compassionate touch to her practice.

Chante Spannenberg


Chante, a registered counselor with HPCSA, brings over 5 years of experience in private practice, specializing in adolescents, adults, and couples. Her focus areas include grief, relationship challenges, women’s issues, trauma, self-esteem, parenting, teen support, and stress management.

She collaborates with clients, providing a non-judgmental, empathetic space for exploration. Through this process, clients can cultivate new perspectives and coping mechanisms to address their current struggles.

“Seeking professional psychological support can guide you through crises, foster personal growth, and help meet life’s demands. Your therapy journey can lead to achieving a state of well-being.”

Chante offers counseling in both English and Afrikaans and is a mother of two.


Engela Kok


Engela is an empathetic counselor who adopts a client-centered approach to therapy. In her therapy room, Engela and her clients collaborate to cultivate emotional skills that extend beyond their sessions. She takes pride in creating a warm, inviting space where clients feel safe exploring their challenges.

With a special focus on couples navigating relationship difficulties and individuals facing fertility issues, Engela offers support tailored to each client’s unique needs. Fluent in both English and Afrikaans, she provides counseling in both languages, ensuring clients feel understood and heard.

Our Approach

Our therapeutic approach is characterized by a commitment  to recognizing the distinct needs of each individual client or couple and then tailoring our therapy to those needs. Each therapist brings a unique style. While our overarching style is integrative, we frequently draw from person-centred theory, cognitive behavioural therapy, and attachment theory.

Mindfulness holds a significant place in our therapy sessions. We believe that through mindfulness, clients can pause, reflect, and enhance their self-awareness, self-compassion, and acceptance. Our goal is to guide you in recognizing self-defeating behaviours and supporting you on the transformative journey of embracing positive change. We are dedicated to helping you foster a deeper understanding of yourself and navigate the path towards the positive transformation you desire.

Our practice takes great pride in being an inclusive and welcoming space. We want you to enter our sessions with the assurance that we fully accept you as you are. Our commitment to inclusivity extends to being LGBTQ-friendly, ensuring a supportive and affirming environment for everyone.
