    Because Laura has been fooled and taken advantage of

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    Because Laura has been fooled and taken advantage of on numerous occasions, she has decided to go on a course to learn psychological self-defence techniques.

    Grammatically, it's OK and it's natural enough if you can imagine anyone ever taking "psychological self-defence" classes!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'd use 'assertiveness techniques'.
