Laura Phoenix-Jones

Occupational Therapist

Laura qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 2016 and since this time she has worked with people with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism within NHS community teams. Laura is extremely passionate about supporting people with learning disabilities/autism to be independent, achieve their goals and be able to engage in the meaningful activities they want and need to do in their daily lives as well as promoting the individuals’ rights, choice and inclusion and ensuring the best quality of life for the people she works alongside.

Prior to becoming an Occupational Therapist Laura was a support worker for eight years which led her to her career in Occupational Therapy. Other than being passionate about her work Laura loves animals (especially cats!), watching wrestling, rock music and watching documentaries.


If you could travel back to one specific point in time, when would it be and why?

Early 90’s – I would go to Seattle at the height of grunge and see all of my favourite bands such as Nirvana, Hole, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. I would also have loved to have seen Nirvana at Reading Festival and Hole at Glastonbury 1999.

What’s your favourite time of year and why?

Summer because I absolutely hate being cold!!

What is the best part of your job?

The people I support and their families/carers – I meet so many different people and I love hearing their stories and being able to support them in whatever way I can to meet their needs and goals. There is no better feeling than doing a job like this and knowing you make a difference (however big or small). I also really like learning and developing new skills, you never know everything in this job no matter how long you’ve been doing it and no one day is the same which keeps it really interesting, fun and a pleasure to go to work!

What makes you happy?

Being with likeminded people who I can be truly myself with. Being around my friends and family and my cat, Velvet. My job!

What are your Hobbies and Interests?

Playing video games, music (I love grunge/rock/metal). Yoga – I go at least three times a week. Watching wrestling including attending live events, travelling as much as I can, mini golf and I really love Australian comedy group Aunty Donna.
