Career Path: Healthcare Assistant, The Priority Group
Location: Carrington, UK

Since graduating from my Undergraduate degree, I have since graduated from a Masters degree in Health Psychology and started a job as a Mental Healthcare Assistant for The Priory Group. This is in hope of gaining invaluable experience to apply for Assistant Psychology roles and the Clinical Psychology Doctorate. I wanted to go in to this career to help those that need some extra care as much as I could. Both my degrees have given me great knowledge and understanding allowing me to fully aid those I care for.
