About Me

Listen I know this picture doesn't scream "professional", but that's also somewhat the point.
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), though 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 The Self Helped / @theselfhelped (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, 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 (that also doesn't financially ruin you). 

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 an 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 platform. That means I work with you in a supportive capacity. When it's used in this way I can say honestly that I've seen it work. But it does mean you're doing the heavy lifting. If you're looking for intervention that is more therapist-led and directed than supported, it might be worth considering more traditional online or face to face appointments. I say this because I want you to have an informed understanding of what you're doing here, and if you're ready to do the work, this is a great place to start.

*Please note I cannot conduct trauma therapy such as EMDR or CPT through this online platform. You can contact me directly to enquire about this if it's something you think you feel will be helpful.

"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...."

"I love Online-Therapy.com because I feel that the relationship that I have with my therapist is more real as compared to professional couch sessions. There's a feeling that I am being understood on a more personal level and that is something that I really need, especially during this time of COVID-19 when almost everything is virtual. I also have to say that the CBT Curriculum is extremely enlightening and educating. Just after reading Sections 1 and 2, I was able to course correct a self-sabotaging habit just that day, which made the rest of my week smoother and filled with more joy. Thank you, Online-Therapy.com!"

"I didn’t think I was going to get much out of this and was worried I had wasted my money. However, after finding Li Laurent and giving the sections and worksheets my all- I found them helpful and feel like I’ve picked up some skills and insights that I will use going forward. I think I’m better prepared and less anxious than when I began."
