complex and persisting pain conditions
Due to her many roles within advancing pain care services and education, Laura now only has a small clinical practice.
She has a maximum of ten clients at any one time, and so there can sometimes be a waiting list to getting an appointment.
Laura consults with athletes, dancers and the general public on the management and therapeutic approaches for complex persisting pain conditions. Persisting pain is any pain that has lasted for more than 3-months. Laura's specialist skills and knowledge is best suited to cases where multiple approaches for usual therapy and care have been tried, but it is not essential.
It is possible to contact Laura directly about your pain condition, but, you will be asked to provide a case report from a member of your current or previous therapy/medical team.
Where possible, Laura prefers to have contact with your General Physician and/or Consultant (ie. anaesthetist / surgeon). This ensures that she fits into the multi-disciplinary team
As much of Laura's work is international, she mostly works virtually. In-person consultations can be arranged but are not always possible or necessary.
It is very important that you feel collaborating with Laura is right for you. For this reason, a first contact conversation is required for all people that wish to book in with Laura. This is free and there is no obligation for you to book further sessions with Laura. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and decide if this feels right.
To enquire please send an email to [email protected]
Cost: €150 per session
Sessions typically last 1 hour. The first session is usually 1.5 hours.
Collaboration period limited to 12 sessions per period. You do not need to pay or block book upfront. Use what you need and pay-as-you-go.
My apologies, but there is currently a waiting list of approximately 4-months. If you would like to place your name on the list, please register your interest by email. A €150 deposit is required.
