Anna Turner BSc Psychology

What skills did you learn from completing the course and how did they help you get a job?

Research skills and knowledge of pychopathologies. I have gone into a job in mental health so this knowledge has helped greatly. 

What have you gone on to do since graduating?

Health care assistant and therapy assistant at the Priory hospital, Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner in primary mental health for NHS and currently Team Lead for Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners.

Where are you currently working? What are you enjoying about it?

I currently work in the NHS in an IAPT service - primary mental health services. I enjoy the clinical work I do with clients. 

Is your current job related to the degree? If yes, how? 

Yes as it uses Cognitive behavioural therapy and requires an understanding of psychopathology.

What would your advice be to new students entering the college?

Try and get work experience during the summer holidays. This is something I didn't do and regret.
