Laura McCabe

CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST – B.Psych (Hons), M.Psych (Clinical) – IMMEDIATE AVAILABILITY

I’m Laura, a Clinical Psychology Registrar who is endorsed with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and working at Redman Gall’s Robina’s Gold Coast Practice. I have experience providing psychological intervention across a variety of mental health disorders to children, adolescents and adults.  Areas of interest include; complex anxiety disorders and phobias, specifically Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Panic Disorder, and trauma (developmental, complex & PTSD).

My Therapeutic Approach

My warm and empathetic nature forms the cornerstone of my practice, allowing me to establish genuine connections with my clients and foster an environment where they feel heard, understood, and valued

Am I a fit for you?

My approach to psychological work is deeply rooted in a belief that every individual is unique and deserves a tailored and individualised path towards recovery and growth. I firmly adhere to the principle that a one-size-fits-all approach does not apply to the complex and diverse spectrum of human experiences. As such, I take the time to truly understand each person’s background, challenges, and aspirations, enabling me to design treatment plans that are meaningful, relevant, and effective.

I work with the following presentations:
