"My time at London Met has flown by. I’m really proud of my final project for which I’ve developed a cognitive rehabilitation treatment for sufferers of Alzheimer’s. We’ve had highly significant results in trials and I hope I can develop and test it further. I’m excited about the future, I already have my first interview to work as an Assistant Psychologist, and I’m really looking forward to making a difference."
