"Laurie led us through a series of games and exercises that allowed us to open up and create very real bonds with others and with our own selves. Many emotions were felt in the safest most welcoming environment"

Who am I?

I'm Laurie (he/him), a queer British-Kiwi nomadic who’s current home-base is Amsterdam. My passion is to cultivate healthy, thriving human-to-human relationships. I have organised and facilitated over 200 Authentic Relating, Dating and Embodiment workshops in Oceania and Europe.

My workshops have sparked thousands of nourishing connections, turning many strangers into life-long friends. I look forward to holding space for you!



"I live with complex PTSD and anxiety so in the past I have really struggled to open up to people and build meaningful connections. Discovering Authentic Relating has been a life changer and both my therapist and I are thrilled with how my confidence has blossomed in recent months. Laurie's time and generosity really means the world to me"


Sarah - Wellington, New Zealand
