I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Roehampton currently studying the British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited “Counselling Psychology (Psych D)” post-graduate degree. I also have an undergraduate degree from the University of Roehampton in psychology.
As a part of the clinical element of the doctoral post-graduate degree, I’m working in the NHS as an honorary psychologist. At time of writing I have completed the clinical element of the course and am currently working on my research thesis.
