Hi, I’m Jade and am currently going into my second year of training on the Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at the University of Wolverhampton.
I first started my journey in Psychology in 2008 after studying at Aston University. Since this time, my career and passion for working with people has taken me across a number of settings including; community and in-patient mental health settings and working in specialist care with looked after children.
My areas of interests include; attachment; trauma; and suicidal behaviour. My special interests have led me to centre my doctoral thesis to examining the relationship between an individuals strength of conviction of beliefs, suicidal behaviour and gender.
I am very excited to be taking on the role of representative for the Division of Counselling Psychology at PsychPag. I hope to be able to capture the collective voice and perspectives of all those studying in this area and aim to promote the inclusion and representation of the BAME and LGBTQ community; areas currently underrepresented in the field of Counselling Psychology.
Please feel free to get in touch with any queries, ideas, issues or opinions that you would like to discuss or bring to my attention.
You can contact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter: @Psych_JHardy
I look forward to hearing from you!
