Laura Scarrone Bonhomme
I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist, I started practicing in 2009. I trained and developed my career internationally, working in Spain, South America, and the United Kingdom.. Working in the field of health and medical psychology has furthered my understanding of the connection between body, mind, and the formation of identity. Having worked extensively with children, young people, and families; I am interested in the influence of attachment styles and family dynamics within the adult life. I utilise an integrative approach to psychological therapy.
I view the person as a holistic being. The process that I follow, involves understanding in what way you relate to yourself, your body, your environment, your work, and the people around you. Tracing a map that will help us understand how all the components that conform you relate, push and pull each other. Unpicking the core messages that loudly or quietly you tell yourself about your potential. I will try and understand where did these messages originate, have you heard them time and time again or have you alone told them to yourself? I will help you draw a plan to challenge these patterns, positively shifting your self-esteem.
Although I deal with a broad variety of issues, I specialise in Gender and Sexual Diversity, and Child and Adolescent Mental Health.
I frequently deliver public speaking in gender related issues. Having presented at the following conferences: European Professional Association Transgender Health (EPATH) in Rome, British Association of Gender Specialist (BAGIS) in Belfast, and the 2019 Psychology of Sexualities Section in London. I am Associate Editor of Book Reviews of the BPS Counselling Psychology Review (CPR).
