Was considering how if I wasn't enjoying it and tried for the doctorate, how it might transfer. I'm genuinely interested in research and specific areas. I am alread...

Re: phd to clinical doctorate

I started as a graduate mental health worker in 2008 and then did the high intensity training which I finished 5 years ago and have been working in IAPT ever since. For the past couple of years I have known that I need to leave IAPT but have ...

Re: Bacp accreditation suitable for pwp?

Ideally I would pursue a course which is level 2 babcp accredited but my psych degree and teaching qualification and Sen experience wouldn't cut it. I was considering the bacp course as a springboard either to pwp or high intensity training / clinical training. If no one can comment on my previous p...

Re: ed psych or clinical psych confusion

Thanks for the comprehensive reply. Im in 2 minds really if i should apply for clinical. I personally feel i wouldnt have the experience required despite being able to evidence competencies.
