Re: Has anyone done a conversion psychology course at Chester university, what was your experience of the course ?

For a very similar reason I decided to do a whole degree with the OU rather than the (then available) conversion. I wanted to show that I could get a First rather than a good pass on a shorter course in case this was a concern to selectors. Other folks will be along soon and may have a different vie...

Re: Is it worth continuing feeling disheartened

I’m sorry to hear about the abuse and hope you’re safe now. Well done on continuing to study and to keep your hopes and dreams alive during that. My own advice would be to stop at the PG Dip, and to get started on the MSc conversion. The Masters in counselling won’t get you any further to the DClinP...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

I no longer feel that Pride as a movement is supportive of lesbian women, and this recognition/belief coupled with a discussion with some friends last year made me recognise that lesbian women have always been the poor relation in terms of representation, funded research and supported activism by th...

Re: Any advice on a shorter route?

Hello Yana, Can you tell me whether you have applied to the DClinPsy yet, and if so how far have you got with that? As you'll be aware, courses that confer the title of Clinical Psychologist in other countries can be very different to the training required in the UK to work in this role, and it can ...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. I have stopped attending Pride for strongly held political reasons, and the discussion above makes me feel sad that I no longer believe that Pride represents all of us. I don't think, looking back, that it ever really did, but that has become more apparent to me over the last few years. 2. I have...

Re: Fixed term contract and pregnancy

Not going to be any help here, but there is pressure on UK employers to make the maternity policies re pay less opaque. There is the continual effort to stop women employees getting pregnant by hiding access to important information like this, and it does make me extremely cross. I hope you find the...

Re: Interview Feedback

I'm going to offer up an alternate view on the mentioning about sex, and say that I find that appropriate. It sounds like the interviewer, on that point, was trying to share their hypothesis about why they might have not found you to be explaining very well how you felt about a specific situation, a...

Re: BABCP CBT accreditation during DClinPsy

Workingspouse did this (the BABCP accreditation off the back of the DClinPsy) and was pleased they did. There was a bit of to-ing and fro-ing about evidencing the hours and teaching, but all went through. Hope this helps.

Hi Mungle,
I’m really sorry that I just saw this. I’ll do a proper reply to this later today or this week if not. Hope it’s not too ridiculously late to be of use.

Re: Help me pick a doctorate course

I loved Newcastle and I got a lot from it, but if you're looking to go very person centred I wouldn't think it was quite what you're after. It was really fab for teaching about research and I feel I got a really good grounding (comparative to friends on other courses at the same time, or so they sai...

Re: DCLIN 2019 Newcastle - reference

I had some really late references for Newcastle, and ended up submitting three (my 'most recent' which is required, wasn't all that relevant as I'd done a few different things on route to clinical psychology and it wasn't a problem. HTH anyone searching this in future.

Re: Am I doing the right thing ?

Just chipping in to add my usual quote that - over half of my doctoral cohort had never been an AP or RA. I took a bit of a circuitous route via counselling, then via NHS management of a rehab service and came to clinical psychology slightly later than the average (entry to course at 34.5 years). If...
