Good pain care starts with

social justice

Laura Rathbone

Specialised Pain Therapist and Clinical 



About Laura Rathbone

Pain fascinates me as an experience and motivates me as a therapist.  

Pain is personal.


It's personal for people who choose to work with me, but it's also personal to me.  My parents lived with long-term conditions and I grew watching my mum struggle with chronic back pain.

I have grown and nurtured my practice around compassion and the drive to be at the forefront of the best quality evidence, science and philosophy.

The therapeutic space I hold is inclusive and intersectional.


As a queer person, I am committed to the safety of the people that come to work with me.


I maintain my clinical skill and ethical standards through a team of supervisors who support my psychologically-informed practice.
