    Dear Senia,

    I am Marian and I am currently in my final year of my bachelor degree of psychology in the University of York, UK. I got your contact from this website ( I am very interested in positive psychology and one’s mental health and well-being and would like to continue my career in this area. I am wondering can you give me some advice about the way to enter this field. I couldn’t manage to find the right person to speak to regarding this area and would be really grateful if you could answer my enquiries. For example, what is the most relevant experience/requirements needed? Should I do a Master degree? (e.g. will something like a Master in Mental Health Studies be relevant? ) Or doing a clinical psychology training programme? Or any centres that I can approach? I would really appreciate if you could give me some advice/guidance in this matter.

    Thank you so much and I look forward to receiving your reply! And let me know if you need any further information from my side.
