Laura Gibbon

I am a Clinical Fellow of the UCL Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Clinical/ Research lead of the UCL TRANSACT (Translating Insights into Action) project.

My research focuses on innovation in mental health, particularly in LGBTQI+ young adults. I am passionate about integrating multiple perspectives on psychotherapy, developmental psychopatholog, community psychology, and recovery-oriented care.

I am a Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society (EuroPsy certified) and Member of the Dutch Association of Psychologists (NIP) with most of my clinical experience focused on complex trauma, self/identity development, and LGBTQI+ support.
