This blog is managed by a research assistant by day, blogger by night.
Born in Waterford, Ireland I moved to Lahore, Pakistan at the unaware age of 10. In between writing embarrassing fan fiction and dealing with culture shock I decided at 13 to embark the trials of becoming a psychologist.
In 2012 I moved to Manchester, UK. I received my BSc. (Hons) Psychology degree from the University of Manchester and have submitted a thesis for the award of M.Phil Medicine (Primary Care Mental Health) with a focus on dementia. Recently, I received funding to complete a Ph.D (Mental Health) and am currently working as a research assistant. I have also done previous work in multiple settings to garner mental health related experience.
Apart from my unhealthy obsession with becoming a clinical psychologist I prefer to read in my spare time, tend to my small yet cherished collection of cacti, and can knit and purl a mean scarf. I am always looking for opportunities to intern or work in mental healthcare *hint hint nudge nudge*.
I aim to carry this blog on until I have officially qualified as a clinical psychologist – however long that may take!
