Satveer: (BSc) First Class Hons. Psychology.

I am passionate about user-led delivery of self-harm / mental health awareness training. My passion comes from personal experience of bi-polar and self-harm. As a service-user I at times experienced negative working practices from individuals from a variety of professions, and it is this that spurred me to become involved in training. I hope by educating professionals from all backgrounds to better understand self-harm, this will lead to a better user-experience.

Over the last 8 years I have worked on projects locally and nationally for organisations such as the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Newham Asian Women’s Project and Mind in relation to self-harm.

I graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Psychology in 2012 and was awarded  The Bernice McAuley Memorial Prize for best undergraduate dissertation 2012 titled ‘Culture, Perceptions and Attitudes in Self-Harm’.

I have extensive experience of delivery and combine personal experiences with academics to provide informative, engaging and interactive sessions. My areas of interest are self-harm and, South-Asian cultural awareness.
