A qualified therapist in Cape Town

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.

If you are seeking professional help from a therapist in Cape Town, or nearby, I will gladly accompany you on this journey. For individuals who struggle to find the time to attend therapy, we can also arrange to conduct your sessions online.

that I focus on:

  • Eating disorders
  • Addiction
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Trauma

  • Pre- and post-natal issues
  • Self-Esteem
  • Personal Growth
  • Depression
  • Self-Defeating Patterns

What you can expect during a counselling session:

When attending your first therapy session, you might feel unsure of what to expect. Patients can expect a session to take between 50-60 minutes. When starting your counselling journey, we will begin with an assessment. The initial assessment can take up to two sessions and the aim of it is to establish and understand the reason for you deciding to attend therapy. During the assessment, we will talk about your personal history to determine how it impacts your current problem.

We will establish a safe and trusting space to further delve into your issues. We will also discuss your treatment plan, particularly the frequency and length of therapy you may require, the type of therapy that may be most appropriate, and individuals who might need to be part of your therapeutic journey.
