Lauretta Cundy 


I’m a coaching psychologist, focusing on stress management and resilience. My aim is prevention, working with you to make the necessary adjustments before stress has the chance to take hold.

Coaching Psychology is described as:

“A  process of enhancing wellbeing and performance in personal life and work domains underpinned by models of coaching grounded in established adult and child theories and approaches” (Source: ISCP).

About Lauretta


At 25, I felt trapped. The same patterns kept repeating but I lacked the awareness to help myself to break the cycle. In a bid to equip myself with the knowledge required to bring about change, I started a coaching diploma. The journey of discovery I underwent gave me the self-belief and bravery to then complete a degree in Psychology and Counselling and a Masters in Occupational Psychology. 

Through this process, I came to understand that the negative attitudes I held towards myself all stemmed from my childhood and external factors over which I had no control. Understanding why and how these situations had impacted me gave me the knowledge to change the way I viewed myself and move forward with my life.

I became disillusioned by the fact that, generally, people have to be experiencing severe dysfunction or to have undergone trauma of some kind before this knowledge of why and how certain things impact us is made available to them. I am a firm believer in sharing what I have learnt through my experience and training to equip others to understand why their lives are a certain way and enable them to move forward.


What people say


“I was very sceptical about whether this would work for me, but I have to say that I have been following the advice from ‘Mad About My Life’ and I already feel so much better about myself. I will be happily recommending to friends and family!”

Jason Sullivan


“I really liked how well thought out the questions were for the sessions. They really helped work out
correlations and narrow down my areas of interest and enjoyment.
Lauretta helped me break down where my values truly lay. What I was passionate about, who I
was at the core. I think when your confidence is broken and your life has taken so many unwanted
turns, it was so helpful to find what the true essence of what makes you, you is.”



“Working with Lauretta has enabled me to get back into a place where I feel truly happy and able to productively move forward with my life. Knowing that
there is a way out. Something I’ve really learnt is that I need to always listen to myself, if something is getting me
down I need to find a way to fix the problem and not put it on the back burner. My emotional and physical health is so
important and I need to never neglect it in the future. Practising small daily stress relievers no matter the kind of day
I’ve had really reduces my anxiety. Salt baths are my new found sanctuary and every evening I end it with headspace.”
