Meet our psychologists

Laura Kennan

Clinical Psychologist

Laura particularly enjoys working with clients going through life transitions such as from school to university, adjusting to parenthood and retirement, relationship breakdowns – working with both individuals or couples, and changes in life circumstances.

Laura seeks to gain a deep understanding of the causal factors impacting the client’s current situation and works collaboratively with them to determine their goals of therapy and the best approach for treatment. She uses a range of frameworks including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Schema Therapy, ACT, and Mindful Self-Compassion.

Laura has worked in the community health, not-for-profit, tertiary and private sectors as a clinician, clinical supervisor, senior manager and mental health trainer.


Laura is a warm and compassionate Clinical Psychologist who has many years experience working with adults with a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, postnatal depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, loss and grief and workplace issues.
