About me:

Hello, I’m Grace. 

I’m a provisional psychologist, currently in the end stages of completing my masters in clinical psychology. I have previously worked in the UK in the inpatient sector, across two units, supporting individuals with disordered eating concerns, as well as those with dissociative identity disorder.

Since then, I’ve been spending the last few years completing my master’s, whilst also working for Australia’s national helpline for eating disorders – The Butterfly Foundation.

How do you start your day?

Coffee always. I wish I could say something more productive, but I’m a sucker for a quick Tik Tok scroll.
