My name is Laura Bowes and am from Leeds but live in Newcastle during term time. I chose to undertake a professional placement year during my Psychology degree to learn new skills and gain practical experience, which I believe will be a fundamental building block for when I progress to full time employment.  

Academically, I have taken a keen interest in Developmental Psychology, Social Psychology and Clinical Psychology. Career-wise, I am interested in Play Therapy, Educational Psychology and Primary Teaching. Personally, there isn’t much that I don’t enjoy. However, I have always hugely liked playing the piano, art, dancing and travelling with my family and friends.  

I am looking forward to becoming increasingly involved with the team at the CfLaT and hopefully leave a lasting impression on the colleagues that I work alongside and the projects that I become involved with.
