Clinical Psychologist

Portrait of Dr Laura Parsloe
Dr Laura Parsloe has worked in the NHS since 2004 providing psychological therapy and support for people who struggle to find happiness, fulfilment and peace. Laura qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 2011 and since then has worked with people with severe and enduring mental health difficulties, mostly those with chronic treatment resistant depression, anxiety disorders including post-traumatic stress disorder and those with a diagnosis of personality disorder.

Laura initially trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which has a well established evidence base in the treatment of a range of mood disorders including anxiety, stress and depression. CBT is a short-term, focussed therapy that helps people identify patterns of thinking and ways of behaving that maintain emotional difficulties.

In 2015 Laura qualified as a Schema Therapist, accredited by the International Society of Schema Therapy. Schema Therapy draws on a range of theoretical models to help those suffering with complex and often long-standing issues including relationship problems, chronic depression, anger and personality difficulties.

Laura also has a special interest in working with those suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD develops after very stressful, distressing or traumatic events. It is normal to experience stress after such events but these symptoms usually subside after a few weeks. If they persist, trauma-focussed therapy such as CBT, Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) or Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET) are recommended. Laura has specialist training in all the above mentioned therapies and can tailor treatment to meet your individual needs.
