WHO ARE YOU?

I’m a hardworking and adaptable individual who is constantly seeking innovative ways to expand my knowledge in the field of social, health and developmental psychology.
As an assistant psychologist I efficiently liaise with psychologists and individuals who require extra support by carrying out neuropsychological assessments, contributing to multidisciplinary discussions about a client’s diagnosis, treatment, risk assessment and care plan issues as well as seeking and acquiring specific information by reading notes, investigating relevant histories etc.
I thoroughly enjoy travelling as I have an interest in other cultures and customs. Following my undergraduate career I travelled for a short while to visit museums and important landmarks. The ability to travel has increased my independence as well as giving me valuable life experience. I also enjoy watching documentaries as I have a keen interest in history and human behaviour.

HOW YOU WORK?

I am able to provide a competent experience, moreover as a creative individual I’m skilled in leading a stimulating and productive environment. In my previous role I played a vital role in what is regarded as the fundamental basics of the smooth running of a mental health unit ensuring its growth and productivity. I am instrumental in goal focused plans and making sure that individuals receive the help they require. Furthermore, my key skills include; Report writing; both qualitative and quantitative, having the unique ability to see things from another person’s viewpoint and liaising with a multi-disciplinary team to apply a wide range of psychological methods in order to make constructive changes for children and young people and adults.

My education at Middlesex University, London has thoroughly prepared me for my chosen career path. Having recently attained an MSc in Health Psychology, this BPS accredited course enhanced my knowledge to further develop core practical skills such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, addiction and treatment; public health, health promotion and behaviour change interventions; stress management; chronic illness and its management and working with patients in the health care system.

Accompanying this, I have completed an undergraduate degree in BSc Psychology and Counselling Skills. During my Undergraduate career, I learnt to implement skills such as conducting qualitative and quantitative data, gathering data and brainstorming several research ideas. Additionally, I have also had the opportunity to study several interventions used to treat service users, for a wide range of complexities, including primary and secondary mental health, learning disabilities and much more.
Excellent organisation, communication and listening skills as well as unconditional positive-regard and empathy were some of the key skills I used to develop good therapeutic relationships with service users.

YOUR CORE VALUES, WHAT ARE THEY?

My humanistic approach enabled me to use a person-centred approach to build rapport with clients overall increasing patient satisfaction, adherence to medication, self-care management and helping them to improve their maladaptive health behaviours.

In addition my values are cultivated around having an honest, empathetic caring view of life to help all those around me. I am currently training in Low Intensity CBT at UCL.
