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

Thank you bunnies :D The commute is okay once I'm on the train, but getting out of bed and leaving the house in the dark is really tough!


(Good luck with the UCAS refreshings Lingua and MindfulPsych!)

Re: Superstitions

Whenever I use the phrase 'touch wood' - I feel a little uneasy if I don't find some wood to tap! In instances where I can't find a piece of wood, I tap my head.. :P Ditto! I also say good morning to magpies, and count them. I also say "Hi Nanny" to the moon and random clicks of the kettle, thanks ...

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

Cheering for you firegal! 1. Doing a mock triage with my mentor tomorrow and then I have a written exam on Friday, and next week I'll start triaging clients! 2. So exhausted. Eyes are burning. Had about 3 hours' sleep last night. 3. I'm definitely going to have to quit my part-time youth worker role...

Re: Current GMHW Training?

Thank you for your response LIWY. I've thought, too, that I may end up doing more clinically due to being in the service 5 days per week instead of four. I'm really happy and grateful for the opportunity, it just seems strange to have two very similar roles but only have the qualification for one--d...

Re: Current GMHW Training?

Hi Tabitha, Thank you so much for your response! It was certainly really helpful, I started my job yesterday so I was able to read it last night and compare it to what I learned that day. It’s definitely a great role, I can see that I’ll learn lots of clinical skills—and quickly too since I should s...

Current GMHW Training?

Hi all, I'm due to start a job as a GMHW very soon :D I'm really excited about it, especially since it will be my first full-time graduate (and client-facing) role. However, I am confused as to what (if any) formal training I will receive. I have been through all 18 pages of the "GMHW" search on thi...

Last pole class today with all my friends :( Hopefully I can find a nice pole class in the evenings or weekends that I can go to around work. 3. Laundry day. Worst chore eve...
