Nadia worked as a research assistant during her time studying, investigating the symptoms of Depersonalisation Derealisation Disorder using illusion technology. This research project led to the formation of her undergraduate dissertation, which used the same illusion technology as in intervention into chronic hand pain. Through her dissertation experiment, she managed to temporarily relieve 60% of her participants of their chronic hand pain, which included participants with arthritis, carpel tunnel, and chronic regional pain syndrome.
Prior to working for Schoen Clinic, Nadia worked in an NHS community service for Early Intervention in Psychosis, where she was a Support Time and Recovery worker, alongside being a first aider, fire warden, and restorative justice trainee. She helped patients on a 1-to-1 basis to reintegrate into daily life and sociality, and was in charge of running all of the departmental therapy groups.
Currently at Schoen Clinic Centre for Mental Health Chelsea, Nadia is involved in running group therapy, individual therapy, internal audit of outcome measures, and clinical research. She is also now a qualified associate restorative justice practitioner.
