Hi all,

I’m a 1st-year trainee counselling psychologist, and I’m currently looking for a new placement within the NHS from the summer into my 2nd year of training. I was wondering what details I should include when sending emails to psychologist within a service I’m interested in working within. My emails are usually asking if they can take on a trainee? Often I state my name, year in training and briefly about the days that I can commit to the placements. I do also include a line about being happy to discuss my experience further.

For those that do receive emails about placements, what do you look for when you do get these kinds of requests?

Any tips will be much appreciated.

You need to tell people what you can offer them and their service, not what you want to get from them!
