I’m Laura, a Drama and Movement Therapist and Creative, Clinical Supervisor registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.

I facilitate both individual and group Drama and Movement Therapy sessions in my private therapy space, located in Downend, in the beautiful and creative City of Bristol.

Alongside my many years of experience working both clinically and therapeutically to help people in different settings, such as NHS hospitals, schools, care centres and charitable organisations, I hold a Master’s degree in Drama and Movement Therapy from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (University of London), and have received further training in order to offer supervision to other therapists and metal health practitioners.

Bristol Dramatherapy was opened in July, 2016. Since then I have been privileged to provide therapeutic services to children, adolescents and adults all with very different needs.

My particular specialities include working with people experiencing:

  • Anxiety and Stress Disorders
  • Depression
  • Self-Harm and Eating Disorders
  • Self Esteem & Confidence Issues
  • Personality Disorders
  • Trauma
  • Grief, Loss and Bereavement

I also offer Drama and Movement Therapy Training, and am an associate lecturer in my field. I also utilise and draw upon my skills and training to deliver Mental Health Mentoring and workshops focusing on mental health and wellbeing.

If you, your organisation or someone you care about is interested in finding out more about the healing aspects of drama and creativity, please feel free to get in touch or book an initial consultation here.

Being at therapy with Laura was just the best thing that could have happened to me. It was where I felt safe, it was where I felt I could say how I felt without being judged or shouted at. I have no clue where I would be now or who I would be now without her. Laura is the reason I am happy now she is the reason I have an amazing group of friends and I couldn’t thank her enough. I have confidence in myself and being able to speak to people because of going to therapy with Laura. She is one of the kindest people I have ever met, and she will make you feel like you do actually deserve to have friends and be happy. She makes sure you are happy every single time you are with her in that room. I honestly don’t know if I would be happy now without her and she is truly an amazing person.

We would like to thank Laura so much for all her work with our son. [My son] has autism, part of his traits included extreme anxiety especially in regards to germs and poor social skills, which often left him feeling sad and alone at school. He had a very low self-esteem and this would often be reflected through his behaviour.

[Our son] has come on leaps and bounds since working with Laura. He is far more confident and is able to interact with adults and children conversationally, which has helped him make a couple of friends. He no longer has any issue around germs and feels proud to share his achievements. His work with Laura has improved his conduct at school and allowed him to catch up with his peers on an educational level. [Our son] feels more secure about the world around him and his ability to approach any worries or uncomfortable situations has vastly improved, resulting in him having much fewer meltdowns and being a much happier little boy.

Thank you so much Laura.
