Lauren has always wanted to support people with their mental health. She has a degree in Psychology and wants to pursue a career in psychological therapies. She is one of our Active Monitoring practitioners at South Coast PCN, supporting people though self-help. She believes this is incredibly rewarding and that there is nothing better than watching people make small changes in their life to improve their wellbeing. She also volunteers for a crisis service and a Dorset Mind support group twice a month.
Lauren loves getting involved in research and she has worked on projects relating to suicide prevention with Bournemouth University. She aims to do lots more in the future and would like to further her studies in clinical psychology too.
In her spare time, Lauren loves being outdoors and paddle boarding, socialising and travelling. She is a (very) amateur seamstress trying to teach herself how to sew her own clothing!
