About Integrative Therapist Lara Chitty

Lara

I am passionate about helping clients achieve the best relationship they possibly can.  I particularly love working with clients who are motivated to do the work they need, to attain growth and change.

If you are looking for sensitivity, understanding and a sense of humour, I am an experienced psychosexual and relationship therapist who would be delighted to help.

I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a Registered Member of the College for Sex and Relationship Therapy (COSRT), abiding by their ethical frameworks. In line with this, I have regular supervision and I am very committed to my own professional development.  I hold professional indemnity insurance.

To further my training, I am currently part of the Couples Institute Advanced Programme based in California.  I am also part of Martha Kauppi’s, (AASECT) Consulting Group.

I have been married to my husband for 30 years, and our three adult sons have now flown the nest.  I also have two dogs, who I enjoy walking.  I love to cook, and I am a late convert to gardening!

I am no stranger to challenges. Over the past several years, I have been with my mother through the trial of Alzheimer’s disease, whilst helping one of my three sons on his journey from drug and alcohol addiction to recovery.
