Dr. Laura Hanley

Clinical Psychologist in Neuropsychology

Laura is a Clinical Psychologist who specialises in neuropsychology. She recently completed the Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Neuropsychology from Bristol University with Distinction.

Laura has a particular interest in working with people with acquired long term neurological conditions who experience associated cognitive and psychological difficulties. She offers neuropsychological assessment and therapeutic interventions to support them, drawing on a range of approaches including CBT and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

Laura recognises the importance of understanding cultural diversity within neuropsychological assessment and intervention. She is committed to working with people to understand and meet their individual needs.

Before obtaining her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Exeter University in 2011, Laura completed a PhD in molecular neuroscience from Bristol University. This diverse range of experience fully informs her application of biopsychosocial approaches and enables her to bring a detailed understanding of the theoretical aspects of brain function to her clinical work.

Laura combines her clinical work and love for learning, through her role as an honorary teaching fellow at Bristol university and regularly supervises a number of MSc research project students.
