Calne Girl Talks
Sophie Falinska & Kate Hannay

Sophie Falinska On Tuesday 30th September we were delighted to welcome back to school two former Calne girls to talk to members of the Sixth Form.  Both girls work in the field of Psychology - Sophie Falinska, a leaver of 1996, works as a Clinical Psychologist for the NHS in Adult Mental Health, and Kate Hannay, who left a year before, has spent the past 8 years working in Brixton as a Counselling Psychologist specialising in CBT to help depressed and anxious people. 

Kate Hannay

Their fascinating talks included details about their jobs and the paths they took after school, and inspired the girls to ask many interesting questions.
