Re: CBT in UAE?

I think changingminds did some training out there, and I've heard of other people consulting. I'm not sure the higher salary would be enough incentive to overcome the repressive culture though :( It's the warmer climate that's appealing to me the most :mrgreen: - I really don't cope well with the r...

CBT in UAE?

Hi to all, I was wondering if anyone knew much about working as a therapist in UAE? I've heard nothing concrete but 'hearsay' that the work is more appreciated, better pay and general packages that are more appealing than the band 7 posts in the UK. It may be an option I consider when I finish my tr...

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

1. After what feels like a lifetime of being in several storms and not being able to get my bearings in this "relationship", I have finally found some grounding/peace since Saturday. It has taken so much out of me. I don't know how long this is going to last but I really want to hold on to this spac...

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

My condolences for your loss Lingua - please look after yourself during this difficult time. 1. This has been one of the longest weeks ever! 18 minutes until it finishes - wooo! 2. 2pm train to get home, back to GeordieLand :D 3. I am so in need of a break. No place like home turf to get my bearings...

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

1. He wants one more week. After everything. I have nothing left to give after this.

2. People are a hard work.

3. I can't wait to get home and breathe.

4. I really need to do some university work...at some point.

5. STILL.SO.COLD.

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

1. This last week has been really difficult. Things are really taking their toll on me and giving me anxiety when I am not an anxious person. He needs to come back and I need to tell him. 2. I am concerned that because my head is not in things, that I am not doing as much as I should be doing regard...

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

1. This new dynamic between me and him is strange. Its not as simple as you either want to be with me or you don't. We had a very revealing conversation yesterday and I am hoping this encourages him to make a decision that reflects his goals rather than his fears. 2. I really need to focus on my uni...

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

1. It has been over 3 weeks and he still has not said when or if he is coming back. 2. But I feel really blessed at the moment - things at work and university are moving along nicely despite the busy time of the year. I just hope it continues. 3. Going back home was lovely - nice break away but it n...

Re: Realities

I have to disagree with the original post. I am aware that everyone's experience is different depending on the service and whilst the roles has its challenges, like with all jobs, it's not a "cul-de-sac" as such. Further, I think it is up to the individual as well to look after themselves as whilst ...

Re: BABCP full accreditation

My understanding is that those that do the IAPT course need further evidence which can take a while before they can apply for accreditation but those on accredited 2 year courses can apply upon passing second year. That's not correct I'm afraid. You can apply for provisional accreditation as soon a...

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

1. Finally have confirmed deadlines for the final year of the CBP course - COUNTDOWN BEGINS! 2. I need to make a plan to ensure I remain on track like last year with minimum distractions. 3. I am kind of excited to get to end of this journey. For the first time in a while, I actually don't know what...

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

1. POA - focus on work + concentrate on uni work + book a holiday + go home (no place like home turf to get some bearings). 2. It is so cold. And grey. I don't cope well with winter anyway but this time it is impacting on me much more significantly. 3. I need to breathe. It will be ok. If not, I wil...

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

1. He is going away for 3 weeks. Timing could be better and just because it feels awful doesn't mean it may not be a good thing...right? 2. I really need to focus. There is too much at stake here! 3. On the plus side distracting myself over the weekend with a spa and afternoon did work. Very tempora...

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

2. I don't know how much longer I can keep my sanity whilst holding things together for him. I have tried and he is trying but it is not enough and it is taking its toll. Why is it so hard?! I don't know who the 'he' is, but sometimes trying isn't ever going to be enough and you need to walk away. ...
