Lauren Burrows
B PSYCHOLGICAL SCIENCE (HONS) (UQ)                                                                

Registered Psychologist 

Lauren is a registered psychologist who has worked in a variety of roles with clients of varying ages and backgrounds, and she endeavours to provide clients with a welcoming, reassuring and non-judgmental experience when they attend sessions with her. Lauren believes that the individual is more important than a diagnosis, and that identifying strengths and positives is an important part of overcoming difficulties in life. Counselling sessions are seen as a collaborative experience, where both psychologist and client can both learn from, and teach, the other, whilst working towards agreed goals.
Previously Lauren has worked in both rural and metropolitan settings, and has worked as a psychologist in employment services, vocational rehabilitation, and providing psychological counselling through ATAPS (Access to Allied Psychological Services). She has worked with clients presenting with a number of issues, including anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, disordered eating, non-suicidal self injury, sleep disorders, motivational problems, difficulties adjusting to injury, relationship problems, and anger management. Each client that presents to Lauren is encouraged to identify helpful strategies to overcome their issues, taught to broaden their existing skills in coping and functioning, and provided with psychoeducation to assist with understanding and managing the symptoms they are struggling with.  

Lauren's specialty areas include:
  • Depression (including Perinatal Depression), anxiety, stress management, grief and loss, adjustment to injury and other major life changes
