Prior to coming to BCU, Athfah was a researcher working alongside clinicians in primary and secondary mental health services for 7 years. Her PhD was on an area within occupational psychology, specifically well-being in Trainee Teachers. Having gained a lot of experience and knowledge in two different areas of Psychology, lecturing felt like the right step for her.
Athfar enjoys talking about the areas of Psychology she is passionate about. Due to her experience within mental health services, Athfar is able to bring practice-based knowledge into the classroom. She also enjoys guiding and supporting students in their academic journey.
