Using her online platform, Laura gives her 53k+ followers the tools and skills to live a balanced, sustainable, and healthy lifestyle - and importantly - without ever resorting to short-term crazes or fads. Whether talking about skin concerns, constipation, female incontinence or mental health, Laura aims to educate her followers and to shine a light on topics that other public figures can often tend to shy away from.

Dr. Claire Conlon - Senior Clinical Psychologist

Hello everyone, my name is Claire and I am a mum to three boys, 5, 3 and nearly one….and a senior clinical psychologist. I fell in love with psychology whilst working in Great Ormond Street Hospital in the UK over a decade ago and have not looked back since. I have been working in the health service in Ireland for many years providing support to parents and in 2021, I set up The Caterpillar Clinic with the goal of making psychological support more accessible to all. I draw on my psychological knowledge constantly as a parent and I feel passionate about sharing this knowledge to everyone to make parenting as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. I have developed a range of online programmes for parents to access from the comfort of their own home. I also provide consultation, therapy, assessment and webinars. I regularly provide free content through the website and my Instagram page, so worth checking those out. @thecaterpillarclinic
