Founders of 'Life in the Labyrinth'
Hello! I am a Third Year Trainee Clinical Psychologist at the University of Hertfordshire and I live in Suffolk. I have a 6 year old son who is very excited that I will be a 'Dr Mummy' next year. He is my number one fan and cheerleader and he gives me the momentum I need to work hard. When I am not working or studying or writing assignments you can usually find us outside somewhere, in a forest, park or at a beach. Any weather is a go-er for us and it helps to keep me grounded when things feel really busy. I am really excited to be sharing this website with you and hope that it helps you to see the strengths that you bring as a trainee who also parents mini humans. First and foremost, to have got to this point already, you must have some impressive multi-tasking skills that any team and service will benefit from! I look forward to connecting with you.
Hi I'm Candice a final year Trainee Clinical Psychologist at the University of Hertfordshire. I am a mummy of energetic five and eight year olds! My training journey I am sure will be etched into their childhood memories, they have already said they do not want to become Psychologists because we work too hard and talk too much! I am also the Parenting Lead for the DCP Minorities in Clinical Psychology Subcommittee, I am grateful to work alongside some amazing colleagues and be part of a group supporting and advocating for change. When I am not living my best Psychology life I enjoy watching films and TV series, trying to concentrate on a good book, going out on adventures with the kids, seeing family and friends. I also love dancing like nobody is watching and all kinds of music! Joining Sarah in the hope that this website and having these kinds of conversations about the parenting role in Clinical Psychology will offer connection, shift narratives and highlight the realities of the inaccessibility of the profession for people from minoritised backgrounds.
