Lottie is a trainee psychotherapist at EASE Wellbeing. Having completed her Foundation Certificate in Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling at NSPC, Lottie is currently halfway through studying a doctorate in Existential Psychotherapy at the New School. She has a Bachelor of Arts with Honours degree in Sociology from the University of Nottingham. Looking at the world through both a Sociological and Psychological lens, Lottie completed a qualitative research project on the way 21st Century film could impact women’s position in the workplace. Lottie’s latest piece of research for her doctoral thesis is exploring the lived experiences of first-time mothers returning to work after maternity leave.
Lottie volunteered at a mental health charity, working alongside practitioners as well as focusing on a campaign aimed at accepting mental health issues and reducing stigma amongst young people. Whilst working in the property sector, Lottie simultaneously prepared monthly training sessions to the employees of the company on mindfulness, resilience, self-love and how to live a more fulfilling life. These are aspects central to Lottie’s identity, which were echoed throughout her experiences within the commercial world. Lottie believes the client is the expert of their own lives and therefore spending time understanding their experience of life, or the world through their lens is imperative to working therapeutically together.
Lottie works with client’s using an existential-humanistic approach. She feels working collaboratively is central to a positive therapeutic relationship, supporting, listening, and guiding you to help explore your feelings. Lottie has a calm and welcoming presence and aims to make individuals feel as comfortable as they can throughout the therapeutic process. She is known amongst her clients to consider therapy with a genuine warmth, caring and committed approach.
