So this feels strange - I have applied for the clinical psychology course I think three times over the previous 9 years, some years ago I posted that I had decided against clinical psychology and at that time it was definitely the right decision for me - so I have since had a dabble in other things, almost went for graduate medicine but realised soon after experience, shadowing and completing my app it really was not for me AT ALL! so I was a lost doodlebug for a long while with lots of life happening.
I have since trained as a HIT and also in EMDR; this past year I have felt that I have regained my passion and motivation and really reconnected with Clinical Psychology....maybe it was for me after all - admittedley I had had many bumps along the way when I decided on the time out, endless assistant posts and some not so great experiences that left me quite disheartened and I recognise now contributed hugely to my decision to step away - and although HIT training wasnt where I had seen my career going, it felt like a rather silly decision to decline an offer whilst I was working as a band 4 research assistant. SOOOO....after 4 years out I think its been?? I have bitten the bullet and applied for
Birmingham (my test went pretty shockingly bad so i am not holding my breath)
Cov and Warwick
and it feels good to be back
