Miss Jina Khoushnaw

Jina Khoushnaw is a dedicated Assistant Psychologist at The Fitzrovia Psychology Clinic, where she contributes her expertise and passion to the field of psychology. Jina’s journey in psychology began with her undergraduate studies, where she pursued a degree in Psychology with Professional Development at Brunel University London (BUL), receiving First-Class Honours. One of Jina’s most fascinating experiences was working as a Senior Research Assistant at BUL’s Visual Perception and Attention Lab (VPAL). In this dynamic setting, she explored the interesting world of visual perception and attentional strategies, employing a wide range of approaches such as computational, neurophysiological, and electroencephalogram (EEG) measurements. 

 

In addition to her research placement, Jina’s commitment to promoting health and equality led her to serve as a Health Education & Resource Development (HERD) Project Officer at Black Beetle Health (BBH), a charity dedicated to advocating for LGBTQ+ Black and People of Colour communities. Here, she played a pivotal role in advancing the organisation’s mission of fostering health, wellbeing, and equality through innovative programs and initiatives. After completing her student placement with BBH, she was offered a new position at the charity, as a Health & Wellbeing Project Officer, where she was responsible for project coordination, stakeholder relationship management, health promotion, campaign development, and operational assistance. 

 

Building on this foundation, she is now pursuing a Master’s degree in Clinical Neuroscience at University College London (UCL). Her dissertation, “The Psychological Impact of Living with a Neuromuscular Disease,” exemplifies her dedication to researching the psychological aspects of health and illness. 

 

Jina hopes to contribute to the area of psychological services by utilising her experience and a profound passion for psychology. Jina enjoys the opportunity to work with both colleagues and clients, building an environment of empowerment, resilience, and progress.
