No surprises on the Salomons front - absolutely bombed the test, it was so much harder than I'd revised for. Halfway there!

Royal Holloway Salomons UCL IOPPN I am so happy (/terrified)! It's my first year applying, graduated my UG in 2016, and seriously was just applying as a practice run.

Re: Yes I've heard from... 2018 ed.

Hello, I'm seeing on Facebook that UCL has sent out rejections via email today - and one person on here recieved an interview via post. I was wondering whether anybody has recieved neither of these at this point?! I live in a block where post gets lost/disappears pretty frequently so I'm wondering w...

Re: Do we need more clinical psychologists?

Hello all and thank you for such thoughtful and detailed responses. I want to pop a quick placeholder reply here to say that I will respond to all of you who've been kind enough to comment at some point - I've not been too well and so haven't really had the spoons to sit down and engage with this in...

Do we need more clinical psychologists?

Hello, Wasn't sure where to put this, so I hope this is okay. I went to the IOPPN open evening yesterday and left with lots of thoughts and not many people to discuss them with so thought I'd post here :) The feeling I left with was that yes, there are lots of people with good experience, but unfort...

Changing client group

Hey! :) I've been working as an AP in psychosis for about a year now, and before this I had some quite brief experience in mental health more generally so saw a range of presentations. I'm beginning to think it's time to consider moving on from my current role, and I fancy something really different...

Re: Mental health Support/Outreach Worker - career progressi

I should start off by clarifying that do not have a background in mental health - my degree is in Classics and I also have a PGCE. I started working as a Support Worker for a mental health charity when I left teaching and I really enjoy it, but I'm not sure where it could lead to career wise? Does ...

Re: UCL or KCL for masters?

Hello guys, first time poster here! I've received offers from UCL Clinical mental health and also King's College London's Clinical neurodevelopmental sciences, and so far everyone I've asked (all non-psychologists) have told me UCL because of 1) campus life 2) prestige. However, KCL provides guaran...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1) Could do without having a strange health problem pop up now when I'm right in the middle of my final exams :( 2) On the plus side, the out of hours GP I saw taught me a lot about how to be empathetic. 3) He did this by exemplifying the exact opposite of empathy. Never felt so disrespected by a Dr...
