Layla Hamadi

Layla Hamadi (Dn 97-04) lives in Oxford and is working as a Trainee Clinical Psychologist. After leaving Rossall, Layla went on to complete a degree in Social Anthropology at Queen’s University Belfast. She was then accepted to read for a Masters degree in Medical Anthropology at Exeter College, University of Oxford. During this time, Layla developed a keen interest in mental health and realised that this was the area in which she wanted to work. Layla had to take some preliminary psychology modules through the Open University in order to be accepted for a one-year psychology conversion degree at Oxford Brookes University.

After several years of work experience in this setting and after a number of attempts, Layla was finally accepted to the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology course at Oxford University. She is currently on clinical placement with adults in the city centre, working with people with a variety of mental health problems and will be moving on to another placement working with children in spring.

Layla will be marrying her fiancé, Joram, later this year and two of her best friends whom she met whilst here at Rossall will be her bridesmaids. She is also looking forward to coming back to visit the school and catching up with her other Old Rossallian friends and share her experience and knowledge with current students.

We wish Layla continued success with her studies and look forward to welcoming her back to Rossall soon.
