Dr Sabrina Cohen-Hatton led a challenging early life, leaving her home aged fifteen for the streets of Newport, South Wales. She spent two years surviving on the streets selling The Big Issue before she had enough money saved to rent a flat. Having an address enabled her to join the fire service at the age of eighteen and her path to security, self-improvement, and success was set. Working as a firefighter she studied at the same time for a degree in psychology at the OU and later went on to gain her PhD at Cardiff University in the behavioural neuroscience lab.
Sabrina is now an Honorary Fellow at Cardiff and is one of the most senior female firefighters in the UK. She has won awards for her research work on incident command structure in the emergency services, receiving recognition and influencing policy internationally. As an acknowledgement of the lifeline out of homelessness provided by The Big Issue she now serves as an an ambassador for the project. Sabrina credits the magazine with saving her life.
Sabrina’s best-selling book, The Heat of The Moment is due to make it to TV screens in the coming months. And, by the way, Sabrina’s Desert Island Discs were really good! Her favourite track – Bankrobber by The Clash.
