Re: Advice for working with someone with GAD

If her goal is to reduce overthinking (which I assume is a goal she generated), but doesn't see herself as worrying, then I think there might be some value in talking about exactly what she means by those terms.

Re: Anxiety in interviews

Given that one of the aims of CBT is to equip people with skills that they can use when difficulties crop up, and you are saying you are currently putting into place some of those strategies, I think it sounds like the CBT was more effective than you perhaps thought it was at the time. Therapy might...

Re: Pre-interview tests UEL/Salomons

Be assertive and proactive with this, as the only person who loses out is you. Phone the academic reference today, phone clearing house today.

Re: Academic Referee Guidance

I'm pretty sure your application will be significantly hindered without the academic reference, if I'm being honest. However, get on to clearing house ASAP and find out what can be done. Applications will have only just arrived with the course centres, they won't have shortlisted yet, and so you mig...

Re: Psychology Degree Advice
