(from a small selection)? I am not in a position to ...

I'm try...

Hello there, I wanted to respond to your last comment, but spent a while trying to work out whether it would be better to post ...

Re: "Eating disorders" tips for interview and potential job

Hi Misfit, I wonder whether people would have been more responsive if you'd included some discussion rather than just asking questions. I've noticed that sometimes threads receive fewer responses if the OP just asks lots of questions. Threads that are a bit more exploratory tend to get more respons...

Re: Eating Disorders work beneficial for IAPT?

I've worked as a HCA in an Eating disorders ward, loved working in that client group. I don't think it will provide any substantial benefit as you don't work with something as complex as eating disorders in IAPT. However, like any job, you can draw parallels with your different ranges of experience...
