MA Scholar | Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust | 2021 - 2023

I am an MA student at the Tavistock Centre, where I have completed the post-graduate diploma in Working with Children, Young People and Families: A Psychoanalytic Observational Approach at The Tavistock Centre. I will be completing my dissertation to complete the MA this year. After this, I hope to pursue the Professional Doctorate in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy at the Tavistock. Having completed a CPD course, I completed EC1 (Emotional Care of Babies, Children, Young People and Families). I pursued D24 (Child, Adolescent and Family Mental Wellbeing: multidisciplinary practice), which had allowed me to explore both systemic and psychoanalytic ideas. 

 Being a Bangladeshi practising Muslim, race and inequality in culture and society had a mostly negative impact on my personal life. However, I am passionate about the learning and skills gained through my courses and endeavour to support and work with people in my community. 

Additionally, I work as a Coproduction Officer for a Special Education Needs and Disabilities Information Advice Support Service in London. I provide advocacy and impartial advice and support to vulnerable families with a child or young person with SEND. 

Finally, I am currently a 3rd-year student and will be completing my dissertation this year. My research would be about how the pandemic impacted families with SEND. I will be to focusing on how the development of an abled child can be influenced by the behaviours of the disabled child, also drawing on sameness and differences in cultures
