Re: AP Band 4

You can ask but you are unlikely to get it. Most NHS Trusts are moving (if they haven't already) to band 4 positions and once it's been budgeted as a band 4 it's almost impossible to upgrade this to a band 5. You could argue that you are performing tasks and duties that correspond to a higher band b...

Re: Can counselling psychologists apply for clinical psychologist job vacancies ?

Worth reading up on this. Broadly, some posts are for practitioner psychologists, and a CoP could apply, but some specify a CP. There is quite a lot of overlap in competencies, and CoPs like to think they are equivalent, but I think there is generally more variability in quality and more focus on t...

Re: Locuming in IAPT as a newly qualified CP??

I personally think that given you have completed a course that doesn't legally require you to work for the NHS / public sector for a number of years (essentially, to pay back your training), you are (and should feel free) to do whatever you want, locum or otherwise. If nothing else, it allows you to...

Re: Success for Doctorate in Counselling Psychology

I've always said that Counselling Psychology needs its own forum - hence why there aren't many CoPs here. If I was you I'd do a google search for people who have qualified from the course and contact them directly... Or you could contact the course directly and ask them to put you in touch with year...

Re: PWP Contractual obligation

I'm really surprised. In my 10 years in IAPT I have never heard or seen any PWP / HI trainee being asked to pay money back. In London the situation is that everyone is offered a 12-month contract, after which they are free to go wherever they want.

Re: Mental Health Nurse working towards Counselling Psychology

I came across this the other day which you might find helpful - videos of Counselling Psychologists which highlight the wider scope of the profession (and your favourite, Mick Cooper, futures in one of them!)

Re: HI applications 2018 intake

Hi everyone! I'm a bit stuck with the application process for the High-Intensity CBT course for this years intake. I'm interested in applying anywhere really, but especially IoP, Reading, and Royal Holloway. I've been on the individual university websites and the BABCP websites and it's still not c...

Re: Counselling psychologist - is it a realistic career?

In fact I have just checked and there are 17 training courses plus the many people that choose to train independently. There are 13 courses (see below) that you can qualify as a Counselling Psychologist from, plus the independent route. I'd be very interested to find out the additional 4 you are re...

Re: Counselling psychologist - is it a realistic career?

Of interest, going forward the times, they are a changin. There are currently around 900 counselling psychology trainees per year, with around 1/2 to 2/3rds of these going on to work in the NHS. I believe there are around 500 - 600 clinical psychology trainees? Therefore it doesn't take a mathemati...

Re: Trainee PWP vs. Assistant psych

Fair point. But most (if not all) IAPT Clinical Lead posts ask for a CBT qualification, and these are banded at 8c or 8d.

Re: counselling doctorate as alternative for mature student

If I was you, I'd shop around. Apply to a few places that do Counselling and Clinical Psych in London (you are spoilt for choice really!), go to any open days, attend any interviews they offer you, and then make your decision.
