MSc Clinical and Health Psychology Graduate (Distinction) 3 Years Experience Teaching Psychology

Methodology

I don't spoonfeed. I will make you think. I'm very fun-loving and silly, but I get the work done. You'll find my presentations both educational and entertaining. And the questions I make you reflect on will help you develop not only your knowledge, but your personality and character too.

I am a special educator and lecturer with a few years of teaching under my belt. I have a BSc in psychology (manga cum laude) and an MSc in clinical and health psychology from the University of West London, from which I graduated with distinction, highest honours.

Nicole's CV

Employment History
Special Educator at Private Practice, Colombo
OCTOBER 2018 — PRESENT
Specializing in autism spectrum disorders, I have been working with children aged 5-11 from across the spectrum. It was in this line of work that I discovered and developed my greatest strengths. Some of what I consider my best accomplishments in this profession have been teaching a child in one week what other educators had been unable to teach over 2 years; teaching a nonverbal child to read and spell; and identifying strengths and potential in these children and facilitating their development. The most rewarding thing for both me and the families of these children is seeing the children's faces light up when it's time for my sessions.

Special Education Consultant at Evolve Centre, Colombo
FEBRUARY 2021 — PRESENT
I consult here in academic and play-based learning with children of various special needs, from children on the autism spectrum to those with developmental delays or learning difficulties. With very anxious and shy children, I have been successful at creating a secure, comforting, and playful atmosphere that significantly facilitates their progress.

Special Education Consultant at Children's Discovery House, Colombo
SEPTEMBER 2019 — PRESENT
I was headhunted for this position, and have worked here mainly with children on the autism spectrum in an academic and play-based learning capacity. I have also worked with children with other atypical learning needs such as those with neurological damage from brain surgery.

Under the Scottish Qualification Authority and the University of West London (of which I am an alumnus), I have taught for the Higher National Diploma and Bachelor's degrees in Psychology.

Student Researcher at University of West London, Colombo
SEPTEMBER 2018 — OCTOBER 2019
Independently designed, developed, and carried out an original research study on sleep hygiene practices, sleep quality, and physical activity as predictors of depression, anxiety, and stress in Sri Lankan university students (in emerging adulthood) as part of an MSc in Clinical and Health Psychology. I used three validated questionnaires to investigate three hypotheses. Correlational and regression analyses that I ran on SPSS indicated that sleep hygiene practices and sleep quality significantly predicted depression, anxiety, and stress measures among the sample (n=93).

Education
MSc Clinical and Health Psychology, University of West London, Colombo
SEPTEMBER 2018 — OCTOBER 2019
Studied Advanced Psychopathology, Advanced Research Methods (two modules), Biopsychosocial Issues in Health Psychology, Clinical Assessment and Treatment Approaches, and Practice and Professional Issues in Health Psychology. Developed and conducted original research in predictors of depression, anxiety, and stress in local university student populations. Graduated with distinction (highest honours).

BSc General Psychology, Missouri University of Science and Technology, Colombo
APRIL 2021 — APRIL 2021
Studied subjects such as Developmental Psychology, Adolescent Psychology, Exceptional Child Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Personality Psychology, and Neuroscience. Assessments included very basic qualitative and quantitative research (I studied the concept of adolescent egocentrism in developmental psychology and correlation of reported happiness and social media use in social psychology, for example).
I graduated magna cum laude with the annual high achievement award for the student with the best performance in the graduating cohort.
