ABOUT ME

Laura
Bottini-Porsolt

A qualified and registered Clinical Psychologist (on ADELI register), I propose an integrative and inclusive approach to psychotherapy. I will endeavor to offer you a personal treatment plan, tailored to your individual needs with evidence-based models and a continuous curiosity towards new knowledge and skills in the field of psychology and humans in general. Indeed, after graduating in Clinical Psychology and Psychopathology, I trained as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, and continued to develop my skills in the field until I decided to study psychology at a wider scale and graduate from a Post-Graduate Diploma in Organisational Psychology. More recently, I have decided to train to EMDR.  Always driven by the desire to have a positive impact on people's lives, I have applied my knowledge of individuals and groups to  healthcare services redesign and improvement in the UK and South Africa, mainly in the field of Mental Health as well as at an individual level as a clinician.
