About Me

I'm a little unusual as a therapist in that I quite obviously lead a life outside the psychological arena & I don't make a point of pretending otherwise. In the world's briefest biography, I'm an English native living in Australia, working online with clients from all over the world, whilst I continue to work internationally as a singer songwriter. Now I am aware that the duality of these two spaces is almost nearly entirely unheard of, and therapists tend to seemingly only exist in therapy. But my job is to help you feel better, live your best life, & be your fullest self, so at the very least I should be an example of what that looks like. I suppose here is where I most obviously bridge the gap between therapist & coach - note, I did not say life coach - so you won't find me on social media drinking from a coconut & telling you I have the secrets to success (rolls eyes).
You will, however, find me being myself, & encouraging you to do the same.

All informalities aside, I'm a trauma specialist, published academic author, AMHSW, EMDR practitioner & company director of Company by Laurent (free online MH resources for the win). I've trained in prestigious programs across Australia, England & America to gain professional qualifications from some of the most exceptional professionals in the field to date. I work with 18+, couples & have extensive experience with military veterans, having mobilised the first social work sector for veterans with complex trauma in the UK.
I work very hard because I love what I do, so I'm constantly learning and make sure I stay at the forefront of ground breaking work. Therapy is an evolving animal and your treatment should be the best you can possibly access.

I (genuinely) believe that mental freedom lies in our ability to be our authentic selves, & in order to do that, we have to know who that is, and what they need to thrive. That might look like processing trauma, developing boundaries, navigating an existential crisis, or exploring the very thing we're unhelpfully trying to avoid. That's why therapy, the right therapist, & some keen application of "do it your self -help", is the absolute Willy Wonka of golden tickets to a life you like living. You don't have to put on a"brave face" here, pretend, or bend to social norms that most of us don't agree with or like anyway. Just show up. If you want a direct authentic, eclectic therapist who can make therapy actually feel therapeutic (maybe even refreshing?) - you've found her.


At this point I would just like to add, that Online Therapy is a self directed, CBT program. That means I work with you in a supportive capacity. When it's used in this way I can say honestly that it works. If you're looking for intervention that is more therapist-led and directed than supported, assessments, trauma therapy (EMDR, CPT), diagnosis or need more complex support, it might be worth considering more traditional online or face to face therapy only appointments. I'm happy to have a conversation about this with you if it's something you think you feel will be helpful to think about, as at the end of the day it's about you accessing what works best for you.

"Online-Therapy is a great platform and my therapist Li Laurent is absolutely amazing. I love her approach and she speak with me clearly, she tells me the truth even if it can be hard and this is really helping me.
I made progress in less than two weeks, my anxiety is GONE and I’m already moving forward on dealing with other issues. I didn’t think this could br possible or that it would take a long time.
I’m glad I picked this platform.

"I'm still new to CBT, but I'm finding it pretty useful. The worksheets are a great help!"

"So far really enjoying our therapist! Love the way we can communicate on the worksheets, it's like having mini-session. The only thing that has been a struggle is the scheduling platform."

"Online Therapy, and my therapist in particular (Li Laurent) have been an amazing help. When I first joined this site, I was in one of the lowest points of my life and I knew if I didn't get help, I wasn't going to make it.
One of the best decisions I ever made. Online-Therapy.com's CBT approach is so much more helpful than I could have imagined, I've been to in-person counselling and it was not for me, this alternative was exactly what I needed and I could work through the worksheets at my own pace, and select a plan within my own budget. Even if you're struggling financially, trust me it's a worthy investment. What you learn and the help you receive can change your life around so that you can actually deal with your problems and redirect your life in the direction you want.
A thousand thank you's!

"The worksheets and videos made for them help me examine my inner working and talking to the counselors on here helps me redirect my negative thinking for a better outcome!"

"Wonderful resource for those who claim they don’t have “time” for therapy or to work on themselves. This tool not only connects you with a professional who helps you break down your patterns and your problems, but it also forces you to self reflect in a useful way. If we know what the patterns are, we can more easily learn to break them and improve on ourselves and our lives."

"My therapist is incredible. She genuinely cares, works with my schedule, and responds quickly to my messages. This is the first time therapy has ever worked for me."

Rating: [5 out of 5 stars!]

"I truly don't think I would be here right now if it wasn't for Li. She has wonderful insight and incredible patience. I have a lot of baggage and that's putting it mildly. She has allowed me to go at my own pace which has helped me and kept me in therapy. Pushing helps, but pushing too hard doesn't. She knows the difference. She's very frank and at first that took me off guard but then I realized that this is a good thing. I wish I found her years ago...."
