Re: Escaping IAPT

Thanks light0end0tunnel that's really encouraging. I'd ruled out applying for the clincial psych training because I thought my experience (just primary care/IAPT) would be too narrow but perhaps that's just my negative cognitions! (fortune-telling!).

This means I had a year post training just working as a CBT therapist before applying for the doctorate.

I was wondering what people were doing about handing in notice to their current jobs (if you need to?) Does anyone know when we get our actual contract? I have a 3 mon...

Re: Surrey 2017!

Spareroom is great, I use OpenRent too which is a website for landlords to post their places (for whole places, not rooms) - a good way of avoiding horrible agency fees! There are some cool towns in Surrey, I would love t...

Re: Surrey 2017!

I've not had any official letters. Just the DBS check form, the OH form and the email inviting us to the intro afternoon in July :)

Re: Surrey 2017!

I interviewed on the Tuesday, first batch. I had heard they had an induction day end of June last year but haven't heard anything about this year yet!

Re: Surrey 2017!

Hi Sparkling,

I'm currently living about an hr and a half away from Surrey! I've only just moved to where I'm living so may be having to commute for at least a little bit. I am 29 with no kids. Still can't quite believe I've got a place!

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!
