Dr Lauren Burke
Dr Lauren Burke is a Clinical Psychologist who has extensive experience in the NHS working with adults, children and families and those experiencing a range of difficulties. Drawing upon evidence-based therapies, including CBT, acceptance and commitment therapy, compassion-focused therapy and narrative therapy, Lauren uses an integrative approach to ensure that sessions are tailored to your needs.
For Lauren, providing a non-judgemental space and working collaboratively are essential aspects of therapy that allow people to make sense of their difficulties in a safe way, as well as bring awareness to their own skills, values, and knowledge that can bring about positive change. Lauren also believes that therapy can be a unique space to explore and learn new skills that can help with coping with difficulties in the present, but also in the future.
Lauren currently works in the NHS with people who have physical health difficulties and has a special interest in supporting people who are adjusting to living with a physical health condition, want to overcome feelings of loss, anger, and anxiety, or explore the impact of physical health on identity. Lauren is a published author in research areas such as the psychological impact of physical health conditions, as well as male mental health.
