Hi, I’m Lydia. I am an Assistant Psychologist working in Here For You Hertfordshire. I started with the team in December 2022. I feel privileged to be part of a service which has had such positive impact on the wellbeing of staff working across the NHS, volunteer and third-party sectors. I feel passionate about supporting those who spend their working lives caring for others.
As part of my degree, I completed a placement year where I worked for the NHS across several different mental health teams, including an Adult Community team and 18-25 psychology service. Since graduating I have regularly volunteered for the crisis text service SHOUT and have worked as a mental health advocate, supporting individuals who have been sectioned under the mental health act. In the future I hope to become a qualified Clinical Psychologist, which will allow me to explore a variety of theories and psychological frameworks.
I’m really looking forward to settling into the Here For You team and I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to its continual development and success.
In my spare time I enjoy watching sport, going to the gym and spending quality time with family, friends and of course my springer spaniel pup Milo.
