Dr Laura Pearse

Dr Laura Pearse is an experienced Consultant Psychiatrist who trained in Medicine at Sheffield University having already completed a three year Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology at Southampton University. The majority of her psychiatric training was completed in Cambridge with the East of England Deanery, before moving to the Wessex area. 

Within the NHS, she gained experience in adult psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry, rehabilitation psychiatry, early intervention in psychosis and community mental health teams. She has experience in the assessment and management of different types of mental illness, including anxiety disorders (e.g. panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder), mood disorders (e.g. depression) and psychosis (e.g. schizophrenia) and has a special interest in occupational psychiatry.

Dr Pearse has a full unrestricted licence to practice and is committed to continuing professional development and is appraised every year by the Royal College of Psychiatrists (certificate of good standing) and the GMC.  She holds full membership with the Royal College of Psychiatrists and is registered on the GMC specialist register license to practice in Adult Psychiatry.  She is also one of the very few Occupational Psychiatrists in the country. She has recently published her research on psychotic symptoms in borderline personality disorder and has contributed to postgraduate teaching publications.

Dr Pearse has been teaching as part of the undergraduate teaching team for medical students with Southampton University and provides educational lecture services to GP’s on mental health areas. She is also a guest lecturer at the Society of Occupational Medicine regional meetings.

I believe it is essential to take the time to listen to the patient’s story, whilst gently exploring the symptoms present before applying exceptional diagnostic skills to work out exactly what the problems are. My aim is to achieve complete recovery, but also advise how to enhance the patients’ quality of life going forward.  Individual treatment plans are formulated in collaboration with the patient, allowing plenty of time for explanation and questions. Treatments may consist of medication, referral for psychological therapy and/or lifestyle advice. I understand it can be daunting to visit a psychiatrist for the first time, which is completely normal and expected. My aim is to build a solid and trusting relationship with the patient to support them on their road to recovery.
