TAKE THE LEAP
I could feel a huge shift after each session with Lauren.
The strongest hesitation I had about making that first appointment was: I don't need this. I'll just push through this by myself. Why would I go to someone I don't even know? Can a woman see through the eyes of a man?
I also thought, Bodywork? What's that? Is she going to be totally out-there? Is this some hippy thing? I'm a tradie - I wonder what judgments she'll have about me... Opening up to a total stranger, I'm not so sure about that!
I can definitely say I was uplifted, emotionally, from the first session onward. This had a chain reaction with things like my ability to concentrate, be more present with my partner and friends, be healthier in my mind (less negative thoughts), become very accepting and appreciative of exactly what is; and most importantly, my relationship with myself, self-love and self-care increased. This last point really reflects outwardly toward everything I do in life.
If I had to choose only one feature I liked best, it would be the bodywork - the one thing I was sceptical about originally. There is something about being in a space where you can just breathe out all of the internal build-up, without judgment. I always felt like I was floating afterward and my partner would always comment on how vibrant I was after each session.
I would 100% recommend Lauren's consultations! I could feel a huge shift after each session with Lauren - from being in a safe space where I could say literally anything without judgment, to having a huge release through the bodywork, to being able to actually watch myself change and grow over all of the sessions that we did. Lauren is someone I'd recommend to anybody and everybody. In my experience, there is always space for growth, and Lauren is an excellent guide for it!
A point I'll make, as a male, is that I always felt safe in Lauren's space, regardless of what I brought up. This in itself was very powerful, helping me to grow even more.
Lauren's genuine love and care combined with her grounded-ness is inspiring. I am blessed to have met her!
One point I'd love to make to anybody that goes in the future is that, even after that first appointment, if they are like me they will experience hesitation every.single.week. and will want to back out. So, just go - I was always so happy to have gone after each session and would not have traded that time for anything else.

I needed more belief in myself, but I was unsure of how to go about doing that.
I was at a point in my life where I had a lot going on but feeling like I wasn’t doing enough of it well. In areas I strive the most in, things were cropping up which I was having difficulty dealing with emotionally. I knew I needed more inner strength and belief in myself to help me through, but I was simply unsure of how to go about doing that.
Looking for that "something," I was flicking through the Connect Magazine where I came across many ads, though for whatever reason, I was drawn to Lauren’s. Still though, I hesitated for many weeks to pick up the phone. As I’ve mostly dealt with my emotions myself, I guess I was feeling like I would be a failure for "admitting" that I wasn’t fully coping with certain things and the strong emotions that came with them and that I needed some guidance.
When I finally did make that first appointment, I was still wondering if I had done the right thing or not. I needn’t have worried as Lauren put me at ease almost instantly and helped me realise that I did need to look after my inner self better. She helped me see patterns in the way we think and how we shouldn’t concern ourselves so much on how others react to things which in turn affects us, but to instead, be more true to ourselves.
I was especially intrigued by the body analysis which confirmed a lot about my personality and my most favourite part was the bodywork, where through massage, she taught me how to "release" my emotions and "get them out" instead of keeping them stuck.
Lauren keeps "you" focused on "you" in your sessions and she does this in the most calming surroundings where you can totally switch off and concentrate on connecting with yourself, and your body.
Lauren worked with me in a way that matched where I was at and what I needed.
I guess my hesitations were around stepping into something new and different. I had met Lauren on the radio and I felt her authenticity then, so I felt safe in her intentions, although I was still uncertain about the process and what it might mean for me in terms of self discovery and doing my inner work, of facing up to uncomfortable thoughts and energies. This kind of hesitation did not leave me each time I made an appointment. Each appointment booking came with a healthy dose of rawness.
I noticed changes instantly. Energy flowed better in my body. It felt great. I felt lighter. Stress levels decreased and anxiety reduced. I felt more comfortable and grounded. I followed the appointments up with barefoot walks, which helped reinforce the outcomes. These changes gave me more inner room for relationships and life enjoyment.
I liked Lauren's direct approach. Sitting with Lauren at the start and having a confronting conversation about what wasn't working for me in my life really set the tone for how real and raw the process would be. It started in the mind and then moved to the body and became very visceral as we began with the breathing. I liked the holistic understanding of mind and body and soul.
I also liked the way Lauren worked with me through the process. She moved through the process of talking and breathing in a way that matched where I was at and what I needed. She didn't try to push me through a predetermined structure.
Lauren provides a real service that can bring instant results while alleviating long-held negativity and discord. I found Lauren's process very confronting in the best way possible. With her guidance, I could not talk or think my way out of allowing my breath and body to release pent-up energies.
Thank you so much for your service Lauren!
BE SEEN & HEARD
Lauren's a natural born healer.
The most important quality any healer or therapist can have is the ability to hold space and witness you and your story. To witness you with full acceptance and to guide you on your healing journey as you need. To have the compassion, empathy, integrity and grace to be able to hold space in this way cannot be taught. A person either has it or they don’t. Lauren has it. She is a natural born healer and I highly recommend her.
FOLLOW YOUR OWN PATH
Lauren really makes you look for the answer within yourself and asks the right questions.
I got Lauren recommended via a friend and was looking forward to my appointment after the amazing feedback.
After working with Lauren, everything changed for the better, you feel more relaxed and stronger at the same time. And it's great to use the tools that you have learned at home.
What I liked best was the fact that Lauren really makes you look for "the answer" within yourself. She will ask you the right questions and make you look at situations from a different perspective, away from your ego.
The energy bodywork is great and you just feel re-energised afterwards.
I highly recommend Lauren and have done so already.
Look forward to having another session.

I was struggling with dense energy in the body and I couldn't shift it alone.
Lauren provides a safe space for healing to take place and assists in connecting with the energy body to remove blockages. Before working with Lauren, I was struggling with dense energy in the body and I couldn't shift it alone. I'd already tried self-help, talking with my partner and meditation. After working with Lauren, the density shifted. It was safe, powerful and freeing. Highly recommend.

ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR STRENGTHS
Lauren inspires the best in people, helping others to see the best in themselves.
Lauren is a beautiful healing presence. She is calm, gentle and ever evolving in her journey to be authentic. She is skilled in her ability to inspire the best in people, and therefore naturally capable in helping others to see and achieve the best in themselves. I loved the face reading Lauren did with me and was intrigued with how much was revealed. Every encounter with Lauren is good for the soul.
SPACE TO LET GO
Lauren guided me expertly and the massage was amazing.
I wasn't sure what to expect from the session, but I needn't have worried about it as Lauren guided me expertly and helped me to understand the process - the massage was amazing, and I left the session feeling like I had done good work on myself! Thank you Lauren, looking forward to the next one!

What Lauren was able to pick up from a body reading was impressive.
Highly recommend a body reading with Lauren. It was professional and I was made to feel comfortable throughout the whole session. What she was able to pick up from a body reading was pretty impressive. Not only did it confirm many things I was aware of, I also discovered more about myself on a much deeper level.
