I became part of the PPN with the intention of helping the communities across London to become mentally healthy, aware and to contribute to making our capital trauma informed. In my spare time I enjoy reading, studying, gaming and going to the gym. My passion in life is Judaism, this keeps me grounded and focused on helping others. I’m happy with my experiences with the PPN and we are all committed to making a lasting impact in growing the psychological professions across our capital.
