Re: Therapy for non-reflective clients

Case: There's this older woman. She suffers significantly, she's willing to talk to a psychologist, she's cooperative, she's moderate intelligent, she doesn't have problems that impact her thinking/reasoning/expressing. Yet it's almost impossible for her to reflect on herself. She has simply never ...

Re: working with trauma ptsd/burns/surgery/injury

Hi Raglangirl, To work with traumatic injuries in an NHS setting, a practitioner would need a qualification in NICE-approved specialist trauma modality. So this could be CBT or EMDR. It is therefore possible for a CBT Therapist who has trained through the high intensity route to apply for a post wit...

Re: Good idea to disclose MH issues?

Hi Sionni, I've written here about how I reflected on difficult periods and communicated to the courses about this during the applications process. I appreciate you probably don't have a 2:ii so parts of this won't be relevant, but perhaps it gives an example? I don't see myself as someone who has h...

Re: Good idea to disclose MH issues?

Hi Sionni, I think it depends how you see and construct the difficulties you've experienced, and the balance this with what it might mean for you in terms of support needed etc. There are many different paradigms for understanding 'mental health', and any diagnosis is, at best, a severely reductioni...

Re: Feeding the Pigeons

Hey Myotai, The term 'therapist' is not a protected title, so in theory you could call yourself that if you want to (although probably best to run past your service lead/consider the ethical issues). CBT Therapists are called that because their training has met the required standards for professiona...
