Hi, I’m Lou Lebentz

Therapist, Trauma Specialist, EMDR Clinician + Transformational Speaker

Who I am What I offer


I’m delighted you found my site and thanks so much for stopping by.

I hope that I may be able to help you transform your challenges through working with me either individually, in groups or online.

I am working on new offerings for 2019 all around trauma and letting go of the blockages from your past that hold you back from having a voice, being visible and standing in your power.  So, please do connect with me via my social channels so I can keep you updated of any progress.

There is much in the pipeline, including group events and one day workshops, so please keep checking back.

About Me

I have worked with a myriad of clients over many many years; 10 of those at a well known psychiatric hospital in London, The Priory.  Where I assisted people in overcoming often extreme challenges and setbacks.

I worked primarily with addictions, eating disorders, depression, anxiety and both PTSD and complex PTSD.  Many of the symptoms I dealt with came from some form of underlying trauma and resultant limiting self beliefs.

Trauma and unchallenged beliefs so often go on to stop us excelling in many areas of our lives. Trauma keeps us stuck,  the beliefs affecting our self worth, or leaving us with an inability to be visible or have a voice and therefore, unable to tap into our full potential.  Underlying, untreated and untapped trauma is an area which I am passionate about.

Going beneath the surface to effect change at a deeper and more sustainable level.  It’s transformational work at our core. Not spending years and often decades managing the symptoms and not the cause.  My advice, dive down and swim away from the shallow waters. Whether in 1-1 work or in a group gathering or events come and work on the stuff you’ve been too scared to go towards.

How else can I help?

Speaking and Talks

1-1 Coaching + Therapy

“Lou is one of those extraordinary people that I instantly took a shine to. Her interpersonal manner and he passion to create healthy change in others is wonderful to witness and even greater when I’m the recipient (Lou assisted me with some Creative Tapping, as well as some Talking Therapy).

I am in the fortunate position of being not only a massive fan of Lou’s craft, but also a good friend, with whom we both share strategies and better practices.

I would recommend her to any of my friends and clients who had a desire to address their sugar consumption and lifestyle choices. “

“Lou is an amazing mixture of bubbling vitality, deep insight, with a lovely nature. She can connect deeply with others and does so with heartfelt integrity. It’s inspiring and a genuine pleasure to work with her – an unreserved recommendation.”

“Lou Lebentz, big hearted visionary and long-term expert in the addiction field, is a totally inspiring and thought provoking speaker. Down to earth, funny and engaging, you can hear a pin drop when she delivers what are highly entertaining speeches on subjects that none of us can afford not to pay attention to. ”
