Clinical Manager & Group Facilitator MSc MBPsS BA
I am thrilled to be working as Clinical Manager within the team at TRC, helping to foster a supportive and caring therapeutic community for our clients. I particularly enjoy the opportunity to work directly with our clients in facilitating Group Therapy and individual Life Skills and Ego Development sessions. Working at TRC provides a unique opportunity for our clients to engage in therapeutic work whilst maintaining their connection with the outside world. It is during our individual sessions that I can help our clients navigate this balance and practically prepare for their life outside of therapy once their recovery is more established.
At TRC, we aim to nurture a warm and comforting atmosphere, helping to put our clients at ease and feel safe. The team works intuitively, recognising that our clients often bring problems with them that need to be approached with delicacy and subtlety. I see this as a central aspect of my role at TRC as Clinical Manager, since I am often the point of contact for our clients and their family. Equally our integrative approach, providing clients with bespoke treatment programmes plays a key role in helping us to continually respond to the needs and circumstances experienced by our clients during their time at TRC. It is a privilege to be part of this process, ensuring that our clients receive the very best care and support during their mental health recovery.
I have an undergraduate degree in Anthropology from University of Sussex and I completed my master’s degree in Psychology at Regent’s University London in 2016. My thesis investigated the role of depression, anxiety, and social media use in the development of eating disorders in both men and women, whilst my undergraduate dissertation analysed the repercussions the discourse between practitioner and patient can have on the successful treatment of chronic illnesses, and how patient’s mental health is a factor often trivialised or diminished. My continued training includes a Group Facilitation Course at the Gestalt Centre.
I find that my multi-disciplinary background has emphasised the impact of the convoluted relationship between people and the modern world, and in turn, highlighted the importance of helping people to find and build internal balance and emotional resilience for a healthy emotional and mental life. I find it exciting to work in a field of continuously developing research and expanding theories, and I relish the opportunity to apply academic knowledge to the treatment of the individual.
