My academic background is in Psychology. I have a BA in Psychology and Counselling and a MSc in Applied Social and Health Psychology, which I obtained a Distinction in and my main career aim is to progress within the field of Psychology in the areas of Mental Health and Learning disabilities; working with children and adults. I will be an accredited ABMU PBM (Positive Behaviour Management) Trainer from the end of March 2020 and am currently carrying out my BTEC PBS Level 5. I have had training in Active Support and Total Communication.
I have always had ambition, been empathic and had a passion to support, engage and work alongside individuals within these services. I believe my academic background and life experience has allowed me to develop within this field. I have experience working with individuals with complex needs in many areas. I strive to support individuals in a person centred manner, which is solely tailored to their individual needs.
At M&D Care, I have the opportunity to support individuals within the homes they live and assist managers in their day to day work. I assess individuals, the behaviours they present and work alongside them in proactive ways to develop their independence and autonomy ensuring they have the methods and pathways to live a meaningful and enriched life.
I have always known I wanted to work within the Health and Social care sector, specifically in the field of Psychology and I am determined to ensure I can impact individual’s lives in a positive manner whilst developing my psychological skills and knowledge.
