Laurentina's Couch

Laurentina's Couch

It's literally a couch on a stage. But not just any couch. A therapist's couch. It's an improvised show where real-life audience members step up and share their deepest struggles while improv therapist Laurentina gives real-life advice. You may not think people do it -- but yes, people get up and get vulnerable. And you get to witness it.

In past shows, people have shared about career/motherhood transitions, creating milestones in polyamourous relationships, subconscious beliefs about money, and creating community in Guelph. People (including Laurentina) have shared major life transitions on the show. It's different every time, and it's always been amazing.

Yes, you will have the opportunity to get real feedback on whatever you're struggling with. And no, you don't have to get up on the couch -- there will always be others who want to. But don't be surprised if after a few times, you find yourself wishing for a chance...


Normally Laurentina charges $150/hour for this magic. Tickets for the show are only $20.

Is the cost a barrier? Pay what you can, and offset the rest by helping to grow the community.

Ways you can help:

  • Post this event on social media
  • Bring a friend. Or bring several, and split the $20 between 2-4 people
  • Help with the door
  • Create community by talking with people before or after the show
  • Talk with Laurentina in advance about other ways to help
  • Buy Laurentina's meal
  • Contribute financially
