It is not about how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness
I am very excited to be a part of the Sage PsychologieUK team, having joined as an Assistant Neuropsychologist after completing my BSc Psychology with Neuropsychology at Bangor University. I work with guidance and supervision from Dr Neal and Dr Huke.
Although just beginning on the path towards training as a Clinical Neuropsychologist, I have gathered experience as a befriender with Headway (ongoing), as a volunteer in two play groups for children with special needs (3½ years), and as mentor for new students during my time at Bangor University (1½ years). Alongside my new role at Sage I am employed as an Intern at Bangor University, assisting in PhD research which is exploring theory of mind and the use of social robots with children in schools. I have also learned a lot from working part-time for IKEA in Customer Relations over the last 4 years, only giving this up now to follow my dream of working in a clinical setting.
I thoroughly enjoy working in friendly and uplifting environments that seek to help and support individuals, as this reflects my passion and my aim, both in the way I live my life and in my work. Since the age of 12 I have organised and participated in events for charity that are personally meaningful.
I am an enthusiastic and reliable person. I enjoy being creative and thinking up new ideas that will keep children positively engaged. During my time at Sage I hope to build on my understanding of clinical formulation, and the use of CBT and mindfulness with clients, whether younger or older.
In my spare time I love nothing more than a good walk in the hills with my dogs, Prince and Shadow. I totally understand when people talk about the happiness dogs bring to their lives. I also love running, going on adventures, and spending time with my friends and family.
