Nicola Sheehan

What do you do?
I’m a clinical psychotherapist.

What has been your greatest achievement?
I think my greatest achievement is probably supporting the people around me, my family and my clients, and try to live in a way that upholds my values wherever I can.

What was your biggest challenge and how did you overcome it?
I guess my biggest challenge has been how to navigate the world and I’m doing okay, although it’s getting a little bit harder now I’m seriously middle aged. I’ll always try to think creatively about how to tackle something in a way that I can still manage.

Who was your role-model growing up?
LOL, I think my role model growing up was probably Nik Kershaw, but if I was cooler it would be Douglas Bader or Frida Kahlo

What do you think would help more adults with CP achieve their ambitions?
Everyone needs accessibility and acceptance
