Dr Marta de M López
Chartered Clinical Psychologist
As an avid listener of my ancestors' life stories, my young and curious mind soon became fascinated by the half imagined half truths memories formed in mind by their telling of their experiences. These inspired me to embark on a journey of discovery of human experience that would form the basis of my personal and professional perspectives in life.

Hi there, I’m India. Currently, I am a final year student studying Human Neuroscience at the University of Birmingham. I have been interested in Mental Health since a very young age, as making other people smile is what makes me happiest.
During my lower-sixth year at school, I volunteered at Headway, a neurorehabilitation charity; it was at this point that I became highly fascinated with Psychology. I felt a burning desire to help every single person in the room, I wanted to know everything, to be a part of it all, to form plans, to make everyone feel at home and to put a smile on every face. At this time in my life, I was loving both my A-levels in Biology and Chemistry which lead me to pursue the Neuroscience course. With only a 13% chance of getting in, I was cutting it fine. Luckily, with determination and hard work, I was accepted, and I have loved every second of it.
This summer, I hope to graduate with a first-class degree, before beginning the long, but amazing journey into gaining experience before applying to a Clinical Psychology Doctorate.
One thing to note about me is that I have a very big heart and so for me, a challenge throughout this venture will be putting my own feelings aside, in order to help others. This is both a struggle in my personal and professional life, but I know that I can work on it and I have already come a long way.
In terms of the future, I envision myself helping others to find their purpose and happiness!
I live by the rule that everything happens for a reason, and I am very invested in the law of attraction, that what you put out to the world, you will receive. My motivation will, and always has been making others smile and I cannot wait for what the next few years entail for me.
