Personal details

I studied a BSc in Psychology at Loughborough University, before training as a Psychology Practitioner in the NHS through the University of Exeter. I worked in NHS neuropsychology and mental health services before being awarded the University of Leicester’s first fully funded interdisciplinary Cross-College PhD studentship. I am also a published children’s author and illustrator, a multi-disciplinary artist, and former vintage clothing entrepreneur.
