Re: IAPT Trainee PWP interview /being reflective

Hi Lissa,

Have you looked into Gibbs' Reflective Cycle as a model for answering questions reflectively? It might be a good framework to start with.

Good luck with the interview!

Re: Plymouth or/and Exeter or/and based in Cornwall

Hi Jen, Have you heard about the Alternative Handbook? It contains responses from trainees on all of the courses and includes details such as length of placements, locations of placements, and if trainees have had to stay in B&Bs etc and can be really helpful in finding more info about the courses. ...

Hi Miriam,

Thanks :)

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

I'm a bit overwhelmed to have things turn around so spectacularly at the last minute, especially having essentially given up and moved on. That said, I'm happy to say I've been offered a place at Exeter! Bangor Lancaster ? Lancaster Birmingham > Birmingham > Birmingham Exeter > Exeter > Exeter ! I'...

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

1. Working with children, no two days are the same. But today, I took a client to a reptile shop, and (not by my planning I admit), we watched a baby snake hatch in front of our eyes - we were literally the first things an animal ever saw in the whole world... 2.

Re: Lancaster 2016

Looking forward to meeting everyone in September, it's all starting to feel real now!
