Laura talks about her experience here:
"I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Sydney, and my Masters of Professional Psychology at Wollongong University. I have worked with a diverse group of adults and adolescents in private practice, using an eclectic mix of therapies.
I bring valuable experience from working as a school psychologist in an independent high school for disadvantaged adolescents who suffer from trauma and associated difficulties, and I have also worked in a drug and alcohol day rehabilitation program for young adults.
I have gained further invaluable experience working in community health with ATSI young adults, and I have specialised experience from the University of Sydney, in treating problem gambling.
I also come from an extensive background of working with the body and mind through wellness coaching and physical training, working specifically with water phobias and anxiety through therapeutic movement in the water."
What do you love about being outside?
"I particularly love being close to the ocean and being away from the buzz of city life - it is a lovely opportunity to connect with nature and to be reminded of the easy pleasures of the sun on your face and sand under your feet!"
