Re: Should I apply for a clinical doctorate, or gain more experience?

It didn't upset me. It was just slightly infuriating because you have uncritically absorbed rumours we have worked for 12 years to disband, and didn't look at any of the existing forum content (including numerous pinned threads and wiki entries) that deal with these topics, despite coming on here to...

Re: Should I apply for a clinical doctorate, or gain more experience?

This is an infuriating post for a number of reasons: 1) You clearly haven't read any of the many posts on the forum that deal with these ridiculous rumours about "people with PhDs that have been turned down, as well as people who have been gaining experience for up to ten years, who have been turned...

Re: Edinburgh Interview Feedback

Is one legally entitled to feedback from interviews? Yeah, this. If notes are made about your performance and stored you are legally allowed to request it is my understanding although if I am incorrect I am happy to withdraw that :) That's a data protection right, but isn't the same thing as feedba...

Re: Division of clinical psychology booklet/pdf request

So, your plan was to ask who is prepared to breach copyright and risk their professional standing (and up to 6 months imprisonment and a fine of up to £50k if convicted), and our ability to run this forum, in order to save you less than a fiver and deprive our professional body of it's rightful inco...

Re: How are clinical psychology jobs outside the UK?

There are several prior threads about this if you search. Short version is it depends on your career stage and which country you plan to go to.

Re: Essex interview feedback 2019

Sure, just 3 or 4 people each, that's what you've worked out from your guesswork/maths, and is just a requirement you expect clinicians to do as an unpaid service when competing with other demands? And of course a brief email isn't good enough so you want them to each phone you and give you personal...

Re: Essex interview feedback 2019

Why would you be surprised at needing to request feedback or being given a brief email response? I'd have thought that is more than most courses offer. They interview a lot of people! And why on earth would it be "unfair" if different members of the panel give feedback in different ways, or they gav...

Re: What to do next? Career advice!!

Almost no chance of getting an AP role, I'd say. So I'd focus on trying to get a paid post doing something relevant - working in a day hospital for older people with dementia, a group home with people with learning disabilities, a mental health ward, a children's home, a school, or a charity as a nu...

Re: Any advice on a shorter route?

Maven, by writing "clinical psychologist" i was not referring to my professional status, but more to my education. I understand the low side of this issue and never actually introduce myself as clinical psychologist anywhere in the UK. Was just trying to explain more about my education and backgrou...

I am a clinical psychologist
I'm sympathetic to your position, but that is an unlawful statement in the UK as you do not have HCPC registration. I strongly suggest you do not use it again.

Re: Can I make it?

I am not really sure how to reply individually but thank you to everyone who has replied, to answer the question of " why the rush?", that is more about my viewpoint of the world and my upbringing. If i dont get in straight away, i will feel like a failure and it won't be looked upon favourably in ...
