About me

Hello, my name is Laura and I live in France! I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to be able to say that 🙂

I live with my fiancé, our two cats and way too many houseplants in a small village in Haute Vienne, central France.

We left our previous home in Bristol, the southwest of the UK in December 2018, and we have spent every day since adjusting to our new and exciting life in the Limousin (or Nouvelle Aquitaine as its now known). We’ve given up our old hectic rat-race life in Brexit-Britain, for a new, quiet, calm and crucially frugal life in France!

In my day job, I’m a talking therapist and counsellor. I work here in France with anglophones all over the world thanks to the wonders of telemedicine and online therapy. You can find out more about my online counselling work at www.harleycounselling.com.

In addition to my microentrepreneur business, I’m a writer and am currently working on a novel based around the things that I know best: people and relationships. In addition, I write for websites and magazines about counselling, therapy, relationships, the experience of moving to France and of course, being frugal.

If you are interested in working together please email frugalfrance.com@gmail.com (frugalfrance dot com at gmail dot com).

I do hope that you enjoy my writing and please do comment if you have something to add!
