Re: Anxiety in interviews

Given that one of the aims of CBT is to equip people with skills that they can use when difficulties crop up, and you are saying you are currently putting into place some of those strategies, I think it sounds like the CBT was more effective than you perhaps thought it was at the time. Therapy migh...

Re: Anxiety in interviews

Given you were prepared to consider doing a master's degree on the other thread, which presumably costs thousands of pounds, I wonder why you are unwilling to spend some of that same money on therapy if that is the barrier to professional development? I would have to take out two student loans to d...

Re: Anxiety in interviews

Thanks, I will have a look and see what is around my area. On reflection CBT over the years has help a great deal, but I know I need to continue working on it afterward. It’s is important that I try an address this now so that I can actually get into this field of work! Interviews are slowly getting...

Re: Masters clinical health psychology

Thanks, that’s what I had thought. I recognise what you are saying, and now realise that my message was not very clear 😂 I have just stopped CBT as it wasn’t helping, but it it’s not that I think it is ineffective as a model. The demand in my area for CBT is high so it would be a while until I could...

Re: Anxiety in interviews

Hi Ruth2417, Sorry to hear that you're struggling with anxiety in interviews. On the self-help front you could use CBT books (e.g. the overcoming series) and these may be enough or you may find you need more. It might help if you can distinguish the thoughts and beliefs behind these anxieties e.g. ...

Re: Anxiety in interviews

Hello, Yes I am aware of that and have been through CBT when I was a lot younger and it really didnt work for me- partly due to the nature of the therapy session. I am planning to do some of these things myself, having the previous experience and knowledge of CBT it hopefully will help. And I am go...

Masters clinical health psychology

Hello, I’m considering doing a masters in clinical health psychology in Scotland, but not sure how much this would aid my application to clinical doctorates. I currently have a first class psychology undergrad, three years Nhs experience as a support worker mainly in older adult mental health and a ...

Re: Anxiety in interviews

Thankyou, yes so far I have attended them and I know that avoiding won’t help! It’s progress, and I recognise that 😂

I’ll have a look

Anxiety in interviews

Hello, So I’m in a bit of a rut... I seem to manage to get assistant psychologist interviews and my written applications are viewed highly, however I suck at interviews. My feedback is just that I need to say more and expand. What I do say seems to be fine. Anyone got any advice or know of any train...

Opinions please .... should I keep applying for interveiw experience

So currently I am doing a great and fun post as a graduate researcher for an outdoor nursery.. I’m looking at how baby development can be supported outdoors and the practicalities around this. Initially this is a 6months post (probably extended) with the view to publish a paper. This is the first fu...

Re: Eating disorders interveiw

Thanks so much for this! It’s really helpful hearing your perspective- I have considered many of your thoughts. It’s a difficult one really isn’t it ! I have emailed the team just to gauge there stance. I think it’s one of those you’ll never know until you try situations. But also a risk in itself- ...

Re: Eating disorders interveiw

I think it is fine to raise a personal experience in interview, if it is relevant, and if you are emotionally regulated enough about where the conversation might take you. We always ask a reflective question at interview to try to people thinking about the personal-professional interface. That’s go...

Re: Eating disorders interveiw

I'd think it is an important thing to raise during the interview for a number of reasons. 1) it gives you lived experience which can be a real strength 2) it will give you a feel of whether you can maintain professionalism whilst reflecting on your own experiences, and a sense of whether this still...

Re: Eating disorders interveiw

If you were to work in the team it would be very important they were aware in order to appropriately support you. Whether that’s in the interview or through Occupational Health I’m not sure. I think no one can know about how you’ll feel working there, that’s a very personal thing but don’t feel pre...
