Re: How did people pay rent and support themselves doing a counselling psychology doctorate ?

People I know are doing it part-time and in the past it was possible to take the independent route (without enrolling at a university), and you wouldn't receive the title "dr" but still become a "counselling psychologist". I don't know whether it is still possible to do that.

Re: Major amendments on research thesis

I think late graduation due to major corrections is quite high, too. I am now doing my final placement in a Trust employing trainees from a variety of courses for their specialist placements. We have a dedicated trainee space and naturally we talk to each other in the office. We share how things are...

Re: Stuck with doctorate course choices!? RHUL/IoPPN/Herts/Essex

Advice on courses' orientations: If you're more CBT oriented, you might consider choosing RHUL and IOPPN If you're more social constructivism oriented, consider choosing Essex. I don't have information on Herts course. However, consider your application and previous academic ahchievements while choo...

Re: Opinion on thieves and other low-grade crime committers

I use the same approach I use for racists (especially working class disadvantaged people). The way they behave might be understandable, but that doesn't excuse their actions as other people come into harm's way because of it.

Re: Help me pick a doctorate course

I would say Essex. I would say its ethos is similar to Salomons and uel. First-year CBT and psychodynamic teaching (at Tavi). Second-year systemic teaching and a little bit CBT and psychoanalytic (very little). Placement wise, it can be varied though. My first placement was purely CBT, but in my sec...

Re: When do I need the necessary experience by?

Really sorry if this has been asked before, but I wasn't able to find an answer myself. I've just obtained a research assistant position within the NHS working with individuals with depression. If I apply for the doctorate this year, I will have a full years experience by the time I would be starti...

Re: Visa related issue

that means I will not be able to do the course for another 3 years when I eventually get indefinite leave to remain. I don't understand this. Surely the day it becomes indefinite leave to remain you are eligible for the course? I think OP means "until" instead of "when". For the original question, ...

Re: Did you study a Masters?

I can't answer for how much a Masters will help in terms of gaining an AP position as I've never been an AP, but there are lots of similar threads listed on the forum which might be helpful. In terms of gaining a place on the doctorate, it depends on a number of factors, including your undergrad ma...
