TV personality and comedienne Ruby Wax, who has recently completed a qualification in psychotherapy and is now studying neuroscience will be talking about her change of direction into a career in psychology.

Karen Powell-Williams, Chair of the Society’s LHC Branch said: “We’re really thrilled to have Ruby Wax and Richard Wiseman as our key speakers at this event. Many people are interested to find out more about human behaviour and this event is a good introduction to a very broad range of topics.

“We’ve called it ‘Psychology for All’ because there genuinely is something for everyone -from A- level psychology students, to members of the public who are just interested in finding out more about what makes people tick”.
