On the Wednesday 28th November, Valerie McKenna, a past pupil, came into school to give a talk about her work as a Clinical Psychologist. At present she works as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, managing the provision of psychology resources across 3 services in Northern Ireland. She works in the acute end of mental health, generally with people who experience psychosis and have spent time in hospital.
Her talk was very interesting and appealed to a wide range of pupils, including those who want to study Psychology, Medicine, Social Work, Nursing and Counselling. Many thanks to Valerie for speaking to this interested group.
