I am currently a MSc student studying Mental Health Studies at KCL, after deciding to return to the mental health sector. For several years prior, I was working as a freelance videographer and photographer with a particular focus on empowerment and social inclusion. I have an interest in how to promote and improve mental health services, particularly for anxiety disorders and depression. After my degree I hope to work in an IAPT service, and eventually train to become a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
