Re: HI Training London

Thank you, my interview was on the Wednesday and then the uni just sent me an email on Friday to confirm and then DHC sent my conditional offer. Though I have been offered a place with KCL today as well so have some thinking to do. Did you have any more thoughts on where you will accept a place? I'...

Re: Wellbeing in IAPT

Thanks for the replies everyone. Fortunately, I’m in a position to leave IAPT, which I’ve chosen to do so. It was a tough decision to make, but I’ve decided to become a part-time locum whilst I consider other options. It’s really sad at its just not set up to support front-line staff. My wellbeing a...

Wellbeing in IAPT

Hi all, I wondered if anyone could share their experience of wellbeing support in their IAPT services? We seem to have little to no focus whatsoever on ours, and I think that is shocking and quite appalling for an nhs mental health service that is responsible for providing therapy support to members...

Re: recommended apps for clients

Hi there, I would recommend Moodivate which is an app used to manage depression, you've got the ability to create/log a diary and agenda - available on iOs. It is however £4.99. https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/moodivate/id1078071510?mt=8 or check out Pacifica https://www.thinkpacifica.com/cognitive-...

Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

Really toxic work environments that are made up of 'cliques,' gossip, a lack of management, 0 recognition and unsupportive supervisors/line managers that happen to be the same person so it's virtually impossible to raise a grievance. Sigh, and the thought of working 5 days per week for another 40 ye...

Re: Trainee PWP - lack of support

Sorry to hear that you're finding things difficult and you're right to be concerned if it feels supervision is not supportive. Do you have a personal tutor at your university? When I was training we were assigned a personal tutor. If you're struggling discuss it with them so that they are aware of ...

Trainee PWP - lack of support

Hi there,

Current trainee PWP here.
I'm currently finding things a bit difficult and have a rather unsupportive supervisor.
I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience, and how they got round this?
It's causing me quite a bit of concern!
Would love to hear from you
Thanks
