Re: Funding for CP training vs funding for CoP training

Starsky you said People in this thread say they understand the differences between the professions which led them to choose CoP over CP, but I haven't actually heard any clear reasoning behind this choice. If there is this huge overlap why are people bothering to fork out for CoP training at all? I ...

Re: MSc Conversion Psychology application & recommended read

Just to reiterate the points above. I would not worry too much about the additional reading until you actually do the course (I come from a philosophy background and reckon that that is pretty helpful for the psychology anyway - if you are on line for a first in that, you probably won't struggle wit...

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

1. Son interfered with first thought and started instructing me on which emoticon I should be using. 2. I take pride in my parsimonious use of emoticons - perhaps that is sad and outdated. 3. :evil: :evil: :evil: 4. Am tire and fed up. It's not all bad and still feel like round peg in round hole, ju...

Re: Why is the average age 28?

I'm 38 and changing career so have wrestled with this a bit over the last couple of years and have been trying to work out what I think. I currently work in an IAPT service and I think there are times when experience (not necessarily to do with youth) have given me a different, possibly helpful take...

Re: Book-related question: Oliver James - Contented Dementia

I am not sure how helpful this is, but I have read exactly the amount that you get as a sample if you order it on your kindle from Amazon! I am really interested, but tend to be a bit ambivalent about Oliver James in general and wasn't sure about the bit I read- tell me whether I should pay for the ...

Thanks - I wasn't the original poster, but I agree with Spiketwinkle, it is relevant to the post (and certainly to my questions about the differences).

Re: Clin vs. counselling psych. Career planning around famil

Thank you so much - that's really helpful. Really didn't intend to irritate and certainly was not saying that counselling psychology is the lesser sibling - I was merely interested in how it is perceived and related to that whether any counselling psychologists have felt that their options have been...

Re: Clin vs. counselling psych. Career planning around famil

Thank you so much for this post - I have been similarly trying to weigh up counselling and clinical - I am still not sure, but it's wonderful to have everyone's insights and to know that others are in similar positions. Like you, I'm worrying about the balance of life and feel we cannot move. My chi...

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

1. If I had a mundane superpower, I would be able to click my fingers and be ready for bed. 2. Had seven children (three mine) to walk to school then ended up with five for tea. I love that. 3. Duplo lego is really pleasing, especially the furniture. 4. Feeling very irritated with a friend of a frie...

Re: To all the colleges that rejected me

Have to put my hands up to feeling a bit sorry for this girl - Yes, I think she's got things wrong, she has had a shock and has probably been coasting along and nobody has ever mentioned that she needs to pull her finger out. I totally agree with Cupcake Fairy that there is a difference between well...
