Charlotte Lauren Therapies – holistic therapy, mentoring and Moonology in Bristol and online
Hi, I’m Charlotte! A holistic therapist, mentor and Moonologer.
My own holistic path began in my mid-twenties after receiving an incredible reflexology and reiki treatment that profoundly changed the course of my life. Feeling anxious, and stuck in a soul-sucking job, I’d been yearning to do something different and complementary therapy was calling me, loudly! I decided to leave my life in London to retrain as a holistic therapist.
Moving from a high-flying job in a city to back with my parents and studying at an FE college hadn’t been the plan, but with hindsight it was like I had to start on the wrong path to eventually end up back on the right one!
Fast forward 15 years and I haven’t looked back. Now living in Bristol, I’ve met people from all walks of life and trained with some amazing practitioners. My work has enabled me to build a private practice as well as working in cancer care and integrated medical settings and specialising in Ayurvedic massage, reflexology and reiki.
My journey into Moonology
When I reflect on it, my journey into Moonology began with a deep interest in astrology from an early age, but it wasn’t until I spent some years managing the symptoms of post-viral Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that I noticed a correlation with my own energy levels at different points in the lunar cycle. I then began to look at the lunar connection to intuition, emotion and the divine feminine, and so began a deep personal interest in working with the moon. After studying for a diploma in moon magic and a certification in Moonology, sharing this with others has become a bit of a mission!
A holistic approach to life isn’t just what I teach and mentor people in – it’s my passion which has, over the years, helped me to manage stress, cope with personal loss and boost my own emotional resilience. It’s an integral part of who I am, and I love introducing clients to how it can also help them.
I’ve definitely got both feet on the ground and my eyes on the cosmos! And this is reflected in my style of mentoring – grounded but always open minded to what treasures the universe is ready to reveal to us.
When I’m not sprinkling lunar magic, I can be found meditating (usually joined by my cat Chester), mooching around Glastonbury (out of lockdown!) or walking by the coast with my hubby.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about me – I’d love to know more about you!
Wishing you love and lunar light,
