Re: Talking about complex ideas in simple words

I also work as a talk doctor but a different kind, see there are more than one type of talk doctor. At work I also try and help people with things they could do with some help with. I try and do this in a bit of a different way by using the times when I used another talking doctor to help me know my...

Re: Counselling psychologist - is it a realistic career?

I’d be surprised if it were as low as 200, I’d think at least 300 as 14 courses x 20 = 280 + the many independents. Though to be honest I am guessing, as I think we all are. I think the fact is though we’re growing. Also, your estimate of 50-100 CoP’s taking up NHS employment can’t be close. In 2011...

Re: Counselling psychologist - is it a realistic career?

Indeed I agree Spatch, regarding the chartered argument. Of the 19 I qualified with I am sure a great many never joined the BPS. Similarly I know at least 5 of them went into private practice. Two of them were foreign students but both of them stayed in this country and got NHS employment. Though th...

Re: Counselling psychologist - is it a realistic career?

Having thought this through properly, I wonder if the 900 refers to all trainees at anytime, not 900 starting each year would make more sense. Therefore may well be 350 (ish) + independents is a more realistic number. Sorry for any confusion.

Re: Counselling psychologist - is it a realistic career?

Of course courses are there to make money, so are the university's offering clinical courses and of course places will be created where there is demand. I cannot say for sure but I don't know anyone that's struggled to gain employment thus far. In regards the funding issue, I have no idea and would ...

Between 2011 and my current situation, I have changed jobs 4 times and therefore have some insight into applying for jobs...

Pistorius mental illness?

Hi I was just listening to the radio and heard that Pistorius's case is currently hearing evidence regarding his 'generalised anxiety disorder' from a traumatic incident in childhood and that this is a piece of evidence that could hugely influence the outcome of the case. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/w...
