Lara grew up in the hinterland of north, coastal NSW, where she developed a deep love of nature and the outdoors. She fell in love with the simplicity of rural living & the quiet, open space. She spent her childhood between the bush and the beach, and loves the wild, unpredictable, vast and inspiring nature of both.
Lara’s tip on sharing opinions
When sharing an opinion, it’s important to be mindful of our intentions. So why am I sharing this piece of information? Because if my intention is to change people’s minds, then I have no control over whether that’s going to be the guaranteed outcome. If I’m sharing this to offer another perspective, I have to stay aware that people can (and probably will) say whatever they want about it. Putting space between who you are and what you have to say is a way of buffering – so the attack doesn’t feel so personal.
Outside the therapy room
You can find Lara getting outdoors, exploring nature and hiking. When she’s not adventuring she’s on her sofa consumed in an awesome book or podcast. She also enjoys a latte and a deep chat with good friends.
