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, I’m Emily. I am a Psychology graduate from the University of Birmingham about to start my masters in psychological wellbeing and clinical practice in September. I have a passion for understanding the human mind and mental health from since I can remember.
I have volunteered all around the globe including Vietnam and have a huge passion for engaging in different cultures and speaking to different people. My love for psychology emerged from my A-level work where I was able to gain an A* from all my hard work and passion for the subject.
I have a love for sport, and this is something I believe is key in helping people’s mental health and has certainly been something I have experienced myself to help me feel good on a day-to-day basis.
Getting to do my dream degree at the University of Birmingham has been key to start my pathway into becoming a Clinical Psychologist. I am currently gaining as much experience as possible from my masters, support worker role in a CAMHS ward and assisting Dr Lopez.
For the future I hope to bring a lot to the clinical world of mental health, and I am so excited to see where this path takes me.
One thing to note about me is I am very chatty and confident and just love to talk. I think my favourite thing is just sitting and having food with friends and family and having a good chat about life.

My name is Eloise Browne, and I am a Psychology student going into my final year at the University of Birmingham which I thoroughly enjoy. I am aspiring to be a Child Psychologist, so I am hopeful to complete a doctorate after my undergraduate degree. My interest in helping children started after becoming a qualified swimming teacher 5 years ago which I still try to do when I can and in my free time, I love to be active whether that is running or swimming as I find it very rewarding and relaxing. In addition, another thing I find rewarding is volunteering, one volunteer role I completed was at my local domestic abuse organisation which was harrowing at times but still insightful and eye-opening. Lastly, I love to socialise with friends especially when we try new places to eat and drink and spend our time in new places.

YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT US
From start to finish I was treated with empathy, professionalism and everything was well communicated. I received frequent checks on my comprehension of my treatment and also my schedule. I regularly received communication for any changes, or to ensure that I knew how many sessions remained. The facility was calming and comfortable, easy to find and very welcoming. Marta was exceptional, explained very well the processes, the rationale behind them and the intended output/result. Marta allowed me to be very involved with my progress and treatment, but also respected when I felt I needed to stop. Marta helped me get to the crux of my issues in a controlled and supportive environment and provided tools for outside of the facility. I can't thank her enough for everything. I felt that she was very skilled and knowledgeable and this gave me a confidence in the treatment I received, alongside the regular praise and motivation from Marta.
