Each time I’ve met with Dr Lawrence I have learnt a bit more about myself and coping mechanism with the world. Highly recommended.

Amazing guy. Helped diagnosed previously undiscovered diagnosis. Immediately was able to give new medications which helped immensely. Good insight and practical advice on how to manage some of my conditions. Very courteous guy, always walk down from his office to lead me to his room instead of waiting in his room for me to go up.

Dr Lawrence is the Consultant to see when dealing with mental health issues. From the moment I entered his rooms, he was able to ease my anxiety. He paid attention to all that I had to say with compassion and empathy. When prescribing my medication, he explained in full detail (laymans terms) what I could expect over a period of time. I had my husband with me and Dr Lawrence included him when getting an overall view of my diagnosis. He is the best.

I have been under Doctor Lawrence's care for about a year now. He is a wonderful listener, a very sensitive and caring person. Any problem I have brought to him he has dealt with in a pro active, informed way, and I always leave Harley Street feeling more content within. He is hot on prescribing and has helped other physical ailments as well. I could not be happier with his methods, and trust him implicitly.

Dr Lawrence is excellent, I can't praise him and his team highly enough. He has ben of great help over the last five years and I don't know how I would have managed my work load and responsibilities without the tools that he has given me to navigate the challenges I've faced.

Dr Lawrence was extremely attentive in listening to what I had to say. I did not feel patronised or dismissed. He was also very helpful in explaining the different choices of drugs that he would prescribe, both its mechanism and potential side effects. Dr Lawrence was very knowledgeable and was able to offer useful advice to me. For example, when I complained of my problem of comfort eating, he suggested having a food journal to record everything I ate and described my mood before and after food. It was helpful because I became more mindful of my own actions and subsequently was able to detect a pattern in my own behaviour, which was essential to tackling the underlying issue. I don't think I can ask for a better consultant than Dr Lawrence and I highly recommend his service to everyone.

During the session, Dr Lawrence was empathic and understanding and focused on helping me o problem solve the issue that I had brought. As always, he was warm and caring and attentive to my needs whilst challenging my thoughts and behaviour but in a gentle and caring manner. I came away from the session feeling that I had a way of moving forward with the issue and more of an understanding of where I am at.
