The clinic is run by our practitioner, Alicia.
Alicia completed her BSc Psychology degree at the University of Birmingham where she studied a variety of psychological topics, such as the neurobiology of mental illness, motivation and behaviour, and psychological therapies and treatments.
As a current volunteer Text Responder for Shout and a volunteer Mentor for young girls, Alicia has gained invaluable experience supporting and building encouraging relationships with individuals experiencing mental health difficulties or in crisis. She also worked as a Support Worker, supporting children and young people with learning disabilities on a one-to-one basis, whereby many of whom were also dealing with mental health difficulties. These experiences further encourage her passion for increasing the understanding and awareness of, and providing the best care for, individuals with learning disabilities who are also experiencing comorbid mental health conditions.
In her free time, Alicia enjoys ice skating and dance classes, hiking, and tasting new foods.
