'I have worked as a Psychiatric Nurse and Team Leader since 2002 at Broadmoor Hospital, Mental Health Trust. After studying for a work-based diploma in conjunction with Birkbeck, I was inspired to take the Master's in Pyschodynamic Counselling.
'Although I chose to study a different method of treatment from the one we use at work, the course was extremely useful. Broadmoor realised this and kindly helped fund my third year.
'Now I feel I can support my staff more and that I have a better understanding of people in general. The course also helped me understand the dynamics of the organisation too. You need a lot of emotional resilience to do my job and this Master's was a great voyage of self-discovery and really improved my confidence. Self-directed work was challenging but it was brilliant because it helps you to discover your potential and develop where necessary.
'I had always wanted to study psychology at university, but it was too expensive; so in Jamaica I trained as a nurse instead. Although I took a different path, I have ended up where I always wanted to be. My workmates knew how much I enjoyed my Master's and were worried that I would quit; but I love my job and am now even more motivated to help people.'
