Re: Is it all made up?

Thank you both also. I feel comforted to know that other people have felt this way and it is ok for it all to feel a bit like common sense.

Re: Clients answering phone during session

Thank you for your responses. I think you both have a valid point about checking my own ego. It didn't help that I was having my own bad day at the time. I felt worse because it felt like the client was doing this to just test my response. I feel disappointed I didn't do anything at the time because...

Changing role within applied psychology?

Would anyone know if it's possible to convert from being a counselling psychologist to a clinical/forensic/occupational psychologist?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Re: Clients answering phone during session

Thanks firegal. I agree and understand I should address it with the client but it's so awkward to question someone's basic manners and actually I found it insulting that a client would answer a non urgent call during our session.

Clients answering phone during session

What would people do if clients answered a (non urgent) call about their grandson's dinner plans during a session?

Is it all made up?

Hi there, I'm new to the forum and just trying to stimulate some conversation and discussion so I hope no one is offended by this, but lately in my work I've been feeling more and more that therapy is all just made up? I've spoken to a colleague about this and he advised it's something all trainees ...
