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
  • Stress Management
  • 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.

Lauren Moore is extremely talented at what she does. Always providing a safe space for her clients to be free and open... and making sure they feel heard and supported all the way through. She is a super empathetic person, always trying her best to picture herself in your shoes so she can help you identify how you are feeling and is absolutely fantastic at helping you move through the motions one step at a time. Counselling can often be daunting as many people struggle to put their feelings into words however Lauren makes a person feel super comfortable and makes you feel like you can conquer the world! I would highly recommend Lauren as she is truly passionate about her field of work and it comes through so strongly when talking to her!read more

I would recommend Lauren to anyone looking for counselling or who may be struggling and needing some support. She’s... brilliant! I often struggle to put into words how I feel and to feel comfortable to open up but I found Lauren easy to talk to and someone who I could open up to and trust and in return felt listened to and understood and that she genuinely cares about trying to help. Lauren is an amazing counselor. She's kind, caring, helpful, understanding and very knowledgeable and I'd recommend her 100%. I'm so grateful for all of my sessions with Lauren and for all the help and support she gave me.read more

Therapy is the most amazing gift you can give yourself. I am probably the happiest I have been in years and we are in... the middle of a Pandemic. Lauren gives you the tools to cope, not just the solution to the problems and takes the time to go above and beyond to help you understand yourself. 100% Would recommend her, she helps with my anxiety.read more
