Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2017 entry DClinPsy

For anyone who re-interviewed last week for Teesside - I thought I would share this. It turns out that they are now interviewing again on Tuesday. I am very disappointed by this because it seems they are now looking at people who weren't interviewed at all. So its gone from me being good enough to ...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. It's my interview tomorrow and I'm so relieved it's here and almost over I am no longer nervous haha! 2. I found out my grandad is really ill and whilst it's not life threatening he isn't eating etc so it may well become life threatening. I am wondering how much is also being hidden from me beca...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2017 entry DClinPsy

Has anyone had a vague email from Edinburgh basically saying "we like you and we'll maybe be in touch". I'm not sure what to make of it :roll: Is it because they're still waiting to confirm how many places they have? I believe that's why people have been told the 2nd June as a date to possibly find...

Someone I know who interviewed at both Edinburgh and Glasgow was told 2nd June for both.

Re: I have social anxiety - could I be a clinical psychologi

Hi, I have a few thoughts on this that might help answer your question: - There are a lot of potentially anxiety provoking situations you encounter as a psychologist, including interviews for jobs with a few people on the panel, delivering groups to service users, meeting new people often, having to...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2017 entry DClinPsy

Wow Teesside really have a knack for doing things differently. This isn't the first time they've reinterviewed. Out of interest, do we know if their proposed scheme took off where they were offering 6 places to undergrads who did an unpaid voluntary assistant year with the Trust? I googled but there...

Re: Relationship woes

Congratulations on your place on training. I think the course can have a massive impact on relationships, even those that are pretty solid in the first place. I tried to do long distance when I started training, and after a few months, we decided to end it. The course was consuming more and more of ...

Re: Approved and Responsible Clinicians?

Hello, I know a little bit about this. The uptake nationally hasn't been great - my experience is that it's because there is still quite a bit of resistance from medical colleagues about non-medics taking these roles. There's also a real problem with payment - some Trusts have negotiated extra sessi...
