Lara Keogh

Stars of the Central Coast 2022

A little bit about Lara...

Lara’s chosen career as a Clinical Psychologist has seen her devoting much of her time and expertise to working with individuals diagnosed with cancer. Moving from Sydney to the Central Coast seven years ago, she has spent the past four years working at the Central Coast Cancer Centre. 

Lara is passionate about supporting people dealing with cancer and matching an evidence based psychological service to each person’s unique situation and needs.

Although initially terrified of the idea of dancing in front of an audience, Lara is excited to be supporting the Cancer Council NSW and helping them to raise funds for this worthy cause. Ultimately, this will help to ensure the information, resources and support provided by the Cancer Council can continue.

Inspired by her patients who go through scary, difficult, and traumatic experiences along the way in their cancer journey, Lara will give this her all.

“So much of my life is spent supporting people and giving them strategies to cope with difficult situations – whether it’s having an MRI scan when they’re claustrophobic or it’s having to have surgery to remove a lump from their breast or a difficult conversation with a loved one. This is a chance for me to ‘walk the walk’ and do something I’m afraid of, in honour of these people who constantly amaze and inspire me”.

Lara is dancing for her family, friends and patients who have lost their lives to cancer, or who have finished their treatment but continue to live with side effects or the fear of recurrence. 

This is her way of giving back to the people who have made a lasting impression on her heart and mind.
