I have recently graduated from Coventry University as a mature student with a BSc Hons Psychology degree. My interest lies in educational psychology. I am fascinated by how children learn and I am passionate about identifying any challenges that prevent a child having a happy and successful school life. I have previously worked as a primary school teaching assistant and I am a mother to three school age children.
Job Title:Assistant Psychologist
I am positive, happy and friendly and thoroughly enjoy working with children exploring their cognitive abilities with the aim of finding strategies to aid in their learning and well-being. I have experience working with children who are school avoiders and I am dedicated to building positivity surrounding autism spectrum conditions within schools.
Working at Help for Psychology has enabled me to work with some outstanding professionals to further my development and understanding of the Autism Spectrum condition. I am now lucky enough to meet so many incredible children and adults with so many different personalities, strengths and talents.
I still have an enthusiasm to continue my learning, and have a keen interest in research. I am continuing my education and will be studying for a master’s degree in Applied Psychology. I will be focusing mainly on autism and specific learning difficulties (although I prefer to call them learning ‘styles’) such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia. My aim is to eventually become a clinical or educational psychologist.
