I first studied applied psychology at University College Cork, Ireland and subsequently qualified as a clinical psychologist at the University of Edinburgh. This training , emphasising the scientific pillars of psychology, but committed to applying research and innovation , continues to inspire me to help people to initiate and sustain positive changes.
