Re: Coventry & Warwick 2017

Hi everyone, I trained at Coventry (2011-2014), which was an excellent experience overall. I'm sure you're all soon to settle into course life, but if any of you have any Coventry related or course questions (could be about placements, teaching, assignments, etc.), or just general advice/support, pl...

Re: Finding a Space for Oneself

Hi Lingua, Thank you very much for your reply, this is really helpful :) I'll definitely take a look at Virginia Wolfe's piece, sounds very interesting :) And Grace Bowman's work also sounds relevant, I'll check this out too :) Thank you. And I'll post a link when it's up on the site! Cheers - Mikel

Finding a Space for Oneself

Hi everyone, I am currently penning an article for a psychotherapy site and the current article I am working on is all about finding a space for yourself (clients and us), which could be therapeutic, supervisory or spaces outside of this environment, which could be anything from a space at yoga to a...

Re: Advice for Writing of ClinPsy Doctorate Application

I just read this, thank you so much, this was so helpful and it really help reassure me for when I finally feel ready to apply. I feel like everyone gets so fixated on experience and academics that they won't have a chance unless they do everything, at least that's how I felt for a long time. My pl...

Re: Easier route to clinical psychology?

Spatch,

I don't know much about the self-funded courses, but surely people would need to meet certain criteria? And are these in addition to the usual places? It'd be interesting to see how many applicants per place there is for the self-funded route and the experiences they have.

Re: Easier route to clinical psychology?

Sarah, there's a reason for why it takes so many years. During the doctorate you're a paid band 6 clinician, learning new therapeutic models, completing complex clinical work and a number of difficult doctorate level assignments. To cope with this you need a lot of academic and clinical experience a...

Re: Reflections on 4th application and not on training

Congratulations Adski! Amazing. Similar experience for me. Took a while to get on, but the year I got on, very relaxed, completely myself. Sometimes people get over anxious because it's difficult to gain a place and think they need to show they're a 'Super Candidate', most courses will look for more...

Re: Evidencing 8a Work

Hi Alex, Thanks for your reply. The job description as they sometimes are is quite generic. There's a possibility they would argue their way around it, but I believe I am doing more than what I was employed for. Pretty much everyone from admin. through to all other band 7's (who seem to think I am a...

Evidencing 8a Work

Hi everyone, I started a Band 7 Clinical Psychologist Post in July, working for an IAPT Team, delivering Step 4 therapy (highly complex clients) and doing various other duties (I won't bore everyone with the ins and outs!). As we do not have any other CPs in the team and the nearest other CPs within...
