Some of you may have noticed a new face around The Brain Charity recently. It could have been Robyn, an Applied Psychology student from Liverpool John Moores University, who’s been doing a placement at The Brain Charity.
Robyn was able to learn a lot and make full use of her time with us, whilst seeing what we do to help people with different neurological conditions on a day-to-day basis. The experience allowed her to appreciate first hand the impact such conditions can have on people's lives, as well as the potential consequences for carers and family members.
Following her time with us, Robyn said, "I have really enjoyed my placement at The Brain Charity. It’s highlighted the importance of the service for people with a neurological condition and it has reassured me that clinical psychology, in particular neuropsychology, is the area of psychology I wish to pursue in the future."
David Goss, Counselling Service lead with The Brain Charity, said: “It's been great having Robyn on board; her energy and enthusiasm for learning about the charity allowed her to fit in with each member of the team and she is welcome back to visit any time.”
We all second that and wish Robyn well in her studies and future career.
