About Me

I'm a little unusual as a therapist as I exist quite visibly outside the psychological arena as a trauma specialist, authenticity researcher and singer-songwriter internationally. As someone who believes that the key to adaptive mental health lies in the freedom to be ourselves, I try to offer a space that bridges the gap between therapy and coaching, mostly because I've found that this encourages the potential for actual transformation - particularly in the domains of self worth, confidence and being comfortable in who you are uniquely.

I like to be at the fore of innovation in practice, and solution focussed strategies are where I most comfortably sit when it comes to how we work together in the "room". I'm eclectically trained, meaning we can be flexible in our approach, but for a sense of scope for the direction we can take, I offer the following interventions: EMDR, CBT, DBT Skills, Coaching, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Relational and Emotion Focussed therapies. The benefit of this individualised approach is that depending on what you're wanting to bring to therapy, work through, understand, change or challenge - we can be adaptive as we go. I like to think of it as being flexible enough to have some leg room, and structured enough to have a head rest.

In terms of my clinical background: I'm an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, Published Researcher and Specialist Vocal coach working internationally in my private practice, Honest Company and here on Online-Therapy offering CBT specifically. Prior to this, I worked in public and private practices both online and in person, and mobilised the first mental health social work sector for veterans with complex trauma in the UK.

"I have had a wonderful journey with online therapy. Li has helped me open up to myself and the fog filled reality I was living. She has been amazingly perceptive of my deeper issues; helping me understand myself better.

The CBT program is very effective and efficient in its goal to help everyone improve themselves and live happier lives. Online therapy has changed my life for the better. I have become stronger than ever before and am on the road to recovery. Thanks Li and Online-Therapy.com!

"I find this program more participative and collaborative than traditional therapy. It does require you to show up in different ways, but it's a great method when you commit to it."

"I´m very happy with the Online-Therapy program. I´ve been looking for a therapist for a while and i finally found someone who fits just perfectly to me. I´ve been working on the program for the last five months and i think the worksheets are super helpful and they give me a great orientation what to work on. As i like CBT in general this was the best way for me to do therapy!"

"I have been using Online-Therapy.com for a month with a basic subscription and am quite happy with the therapist I'm working with. There are multiple worksheets that you're assigned to help you work through issues and my therapist always provides helpful feedback and suggestions. Even with the basic subscription, I feel like I'm getting more from this format than I have with therapy sessions in the past."

"So far so good, this is the longest amount of time I have been stuck to a therapist. I usually only last about a day or 2, but she showed the most interest and understanding considering this is all done online with any live sessions."

"So far I’ve been really impressed. My time checking in with my therapist was helpful and gave me lots of food for thought. I really like the worksheets and the clarity of the process."

"So far, my experience has been nothing but positive. The dialogue with the therapist has been open and honest. I haven't had much time to progress in the program due to a lot of time being spent at work paired with the Thanksgiving holiday, but I am looking forward to diving in deeper.

I appreciate that this option exists, and I give large kudos to the entire team!

"It's been a really nice experience so far. I'm able to work with my therapist to understand my issues and we work through ways that can help me around it. The communication has been easy to follow and by far it has made the more challenging aspects easier to do. There are so many useful tools that really helped me establish some markers and helped me create a good routine. It's exactly what I wanted from therapy and this format works for me. I've already been noticing small changes and it keeps getting better every day."

"Li Laurent is an incredible person and therapist. Her no-nonsense way of talking was always such a huge relief in all my sessions with her. I spent various months working with her, and my family has even complimented me on the massive growth I have shown. I attribute my growth of self confidence and generally more calm demeanor to the amount of peace Li taught me to have. Accepting things as what they are is an ENORMOUS part of this process. And recognizing what your core beliefs about yourself are and then filtering out what are the problematic thoughts changed my life. I will forever be grateful for the work Li has put in to our sessions and in my mental health growth."

"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.
