Dr Robertson – Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist – Gold Coast Brisbane (drlaurarobertson.com.au)

Dr. Laura Robertson is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist. She is a UK national and obtained her medical degree from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, in 2009. Following completion of basic post graduate training, she entered general practice training before commencing psychiatry training in 2014. She had the opportunity to work in various areas of psychiatric practice in the public system in the UK, and following completion of her membership exams with the Royal College of Psychiatry, she moved to the Gold Coast in 2018.

Since arriving on the Gold Coast, Dr. Robertson has continued to work in psychiatry in the public sector, completing the requirements to become a fellow with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatry in December 2022 (RANZCP). During her later years, she had sub-specialised in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and received her Child and Adolescent Certificate.

Dr. Robertson has had experience working with people across different parts of the life cycle and presenting with various psychiatric concerns. More recently, she has been working with young people under 18 years of age, and she will continue to provide services to children and young people under the age of 18 years and their families. Dr. Robertson provides care for children with Mood disorders, Anxiety disorders, Psychosis, Trauma and PTSD, ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders but has a particular interest in working with young people who have been impacted by trauma and attachment difficulties.

Dr. Robertson believes in providing a truly holistic approach to young people and their families, which is tailored to their individual needs. This includes, where appropriate, evidence-based psychopharmacological interventions but with a strong emphasis on supplementing this with other non-pharmacological based interventions. Dr. Robertson is committed to providing the best support and interventions for the young people with whom she engages with the hopes of supporting all on their recovery journey.
