Re: Online therapy or remote psychology jobs

Totally agreeing with Lakeland's point there; in the doctorate you cover supervising others, leadership, consultation etc on top of therapeutic work and skills across the lifespan... but if you were wanting to offer private therapy like you're talking about, you likely wouldn't need those same core ...

Re: Edinburgh 2019 Entry

Hi China :) I didn't train at Edinburgh, but I interviewed there a couple of times - it seems the process has changed in a lot of ways since then, so my experiences wouldn't be useful (and I didn't choose to train there in the end)... but, out of the 5 places I've interviewed at, Edinburgh was the n...

Re: Beginning the journey

Echoing everyone else - enjoy university first! A higher grade is absolutely the best way to set yourself up well for getting onto the doctorate later - give some thought to your dissertation, and the areas you would find enriching to work in, and see if you can get a supervisor who'll really help y...

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

1) I wonder when I'll stop feeling like a trainee... 2) I'm having some really nice moments with a client who is just too unwell for direct work (has been for years). It's not anything close to 'therapy' but it means something to me. It's connection to hope if nothing else. 3) Really must do more an...

Re: Reserve following Interview for AP roles

I also very much empathise with your feelings Smallblonde - I had so many experiences of being 2nd choice in both assistant applications and clinical doctorate interviews... I 100% agree with Hawke; for me, sometimes the best things have come out not getting what I wanted when I wanted it. For clini...

Re: Biting off more than you can chew

Like Miriam, I have been reading about the work of Prof. Laura Empson and felt it applies here. For those of you who haven't been following the work, Empson has researched high performers in various organisations. She observed the phenomenon of the "insecure overachiever", very bright and ambitious...

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

1) Really can't get over post-holiday blues, timed quite conveniently with PMT. I'm just a delight at home at the moment. Poor boyfriend. 2) Being newly qualified is hard to get my head around. Expectations of me, expectations that I have of others, how I internalise my position, and feeling woefull...

Access to qualified forum?

I've qualified fairly recently and would really love to access the qualified forum. How can I go about this? I've sent admin messages, but haven't had a response in the couple of weeks since I sent them - is there something I need to do to prove I've qualified as well?

Thanks in advance!

Re: How much can trainees afford in rent?

I paid £500 a month for my first flat during training, and £625 for my next one; I have probably more bills than a lot of people would, and also don't scrimp on fun. £500 felt reallllly doable, £625 felt JUST doable without having to sacrifice lifestyle stuff at all.

Re: 'considered for interview shortlisting 2018'

I haven't posted in a while, and have mainly just come to check in on how people are getting on from a distance every once in a while... but felt compelled to respond. Maybe it's because I'm still not quite finished with training, but I really felt for you with the responses that you got to this fro...

1. It's my interview tomorrow and I'm so relieved it's here and almost over I am no longer nervous haha! 2. I found out my grandad is really ill and whilst it's not life threatening he isn't eating etc so it may well become life threatening. I am wondering how much is also being hidden from me beca...
