You make it sound like that's all I say :cry:
Nah, you give lots of good advice. But you do reply to anything about Lancaster course and have insight into other courses in the region.

Re: Manchester Screening Assessment

I love the way you got told this by a member of course staff on the second post, but the thread continued to doubt the answer until posting a reply from a member of course staff. Maybe people were not aware that the second poster is a member of course staff... Possibly. He does mention it quite oft...

Re: Unexpectedly seeking an alternative career

I'd look at a very different client group, or work in charities and social enterprises as a means to take one step back. There are both manager and clinician jobs that only involve consulting and not direct therapy in some of the care providers I work with, for example. If you want to take a few ste...

Re: AP Band 4

The post is what gets the band, not the individual in it. It isn't a measure of how hard you work, but the skills required to do the job. If you can't afford to do the job, you need to move to a better paid job, not expect the job to pay more when they would get hundreds of applicants to replace you...

Re: Publications and Dissemination section

My advice with the form in general and this specific section: don't try to fill up the space. If you don't have the thing they are asking for, leave it blank. So if you have a conference presentation or a presentation to your wider service, list it briefly and that's it. Don't scrabble around for ot...

Good approach. And if you want to get involved with what I'm doing with data-driven improvements to children's social care, get in touch.

Re: Should I apply??

I'd say apply, follow the process through, and if and when you are offered places worry about the trip. It might never get to the point of an offer, and if you get an offer, they might be able to make a plan to catch up or defer the place, but if they can't you have had the experience and can hope t...

Re: Career Change from Data Science?

Well, I read your post and thought "that is a good set of skills for what we are doing, I wonder where she lives?" because as Spatch said, your skills will be great when thinking about the non-clinical elements of the role that so many applicants see as an afterthought. You might like my blog entry ...

Re: NHS vs Third Sector

Indeed, the better pension and leave quota in the NHS is worth 25% more pay than a non-NHS job, and much more so if you expect to want to take a maternity leave in the foreseeable future. But I'd also compare by any differences in the role or the team, working environment and culture, as social ente...

Re: What are people's views on Hypnotherapy?

I've witnessed hypnosis a few times - both stage hypnotism (which mainly seems to be people playing along and suggestibility) and clinical hypnosis. A member of my clinical course cohort was hypnotised by a qualified CP teaching a session (with her consent, after we did a short induction to see who ...

Re: Calling people "non-qualified(s)"

I don't think I have ever heard an assistant or trainee introduce themselves to a client/patient in this way. Literally never have I heard someone say 'I am the unqualified seeing you today'. In fact I am really struggling to believe this has been asked of an employee in the NHS. Perhaps things are...

Re: is privilege a given?

We all share some advantages, such as intellectual ability (being capable of a doctorate probably puts us in the top 10% of the population) and sufficient health to work and study. I'm grateful to be able bodied and healthy enough to work full time. Beyond that I suppose we can make comparison to th...

Re: 35 year old considering applying for ClinPsy next year

But you will need GBC, and it might be an easier path to apply for HCPC registration under the mutual recognition scheme than to undertake the 3-year doctorate - although that is likely to be reviewed post-Brexit if that ever happens.

Re: Do I have enough experience to apply for an Assistant Psychologist post?

Well said. I've pinned this thread. Normally the expectation is of a year of whole time equivalent of experience, paid or unpaid, along with a completed qualification conferring GBC, with a 2:1 or better or a completed post graduate qualification. It is often an advantage if some of your experience ...
