About Laura

I am a registered psychologist who works with children (5+), adolescents and adults. I recently moved to private practice from a family/community mental health organisation where I also worked for a trauma-specific program and LGBTIQ+ specific service. I also bring experience from prior work in private practice, work with adolescents and work specifically with addiction. In my work I have a warm and client-centered style and place an emphasis on creating a safe therapeutic space for clients. I am trained in and use a range of evidence-based therapeutic interventions combined with person-centered therapy. I also completed some training in emotion-focused therapy and use this in my work. In my work with children I combine play, creative interventions and talking therapy, and work systemically involving family members and schools. I am also able to provide appointments in German.
