About

Hello, I'm Dr Laura Artis. My work life passions are working with PTSD, complex trauma and people who have an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC), although I am able to help no matter how big or small your concerns are. It can be useful for you to think about therapy goals before starting therapy, but I can help with this if you are unsure. Often goals are around improving wellbeing and recovery, however they may be about increasing self-compassion, acceptance or gaining a better understanding of why things are as they are today. I have extensive experience working with adults, young people and families within the NHS and privately.
When I have the privilege of working with people, I like to be actively involved in the therapy, and will (with permission) use things that are happening 'in the room' to help identify patterns and interactions that may be present. I use compassion and acceptance based interventions, as well as CBT.
I take a strong non-judgemental, compassionate stance; seeing things we do as strategies for protection rather than 'problem behaviours'. I believe that there is always a reason why we do what we do; it is just that sometimes there are unintended consequences. I try to make therapy feel safe by being open and collaborative in all we do together in session.
