About Me

Hey, my name’s Becky Appleton, I’m 23, and I graduated 2 years ago with a degree in Experimental Psychology from Oxford University. I’ve just started my PhD at Warwick Medical School, working on a project which aims to improve mental health services for young people in the UK. This blog is where I write about things that I’ve studied or read about which I find interesting, and think you’ll like too. I try and upload pretty regularly, so I hope you’ll always find something new and interesting to read.

The general aim of this blog is to make psychology successful and interesting – there’s more to it than Freud – honest!

  1. Hi Becky, I am a biologist pursuing my PhD and I have loved reading about psychology and its challenges all my life. I have been writing on WP for a long time and though my blog is mostly anecdotal, I write about some interesting science from time to time. I was putting together a post about the Phantom Limb and I bumped into your site and its content. It’s wonderful to meet you here in this blogging world and I wish you all the luck. looking forward to more posts from you and hope to stay in touch. Cheers!

    1. Hey Aishwarya, thanks so much for you comment! I’m glad you like the post, I find topics like that so interesting. I hope the PhD’s going well – I’m starting mine in October so if you ever write a post on tips for new students I’d definitely be interested!

  2. Thank you! I’ll be studying youth mental health – in particularly when children’s services finish when they are a teenager and factors that affect how well they do after leaving that care. It’s at the University of Warwick. What’s your PhD about?
