“I'm finding everything so so useful. Being at uni, especially on a conversion course, everything is so focused on the academic side and fulfilling the BPS curriculum. The membership is giving me really valuable insights into the practices of a psychologist and a framework for thinking about them ahead of searching for relevant jobs and working towards the doctorate."
“I have really enjoyed being part of the membership. I have learnt so much and feel more prepared for the next round of ClinPsy Applications"
“The content has been so useful and I've learned so much from everyone in the group too, not just whoever has led a session"
“Being a part of the aspiring psychologist membership with Dr Marianne Trent has exceeded my expectations. It has allowed me to meet others with similar interests, learn from a clinical psychologist and other aspiring psychologists, build my confidence in my journey and build skills for my interviews. It has given me a compassionate space to take any questions and comments I have, making this field feel less daunting and more accessible. As well as learning and receiving compassionate support from a qualified clinical psychologist, the group provides a space for us to all learn from and support one another. Marianne ensures that the content is shaped by the members, and there are always opportunities to suggest content that we feel would be helpful to us.”
“I have found the Aspiring Psychologist Membership to be really helpful. The IAPT world I currently work in is so different from my AP post and the membership provides me with an opportunity to not only think in a more psychological manner but develop my psychological thinking. I also love being surrounded by likeminded peers - often on a different journey leading to the same destination. I am able to learn from yourself and others. I enjoy the clinical psychological interview style prep that occurs. It has highlighted key areas of development for me and also improvised my confidence in my abilities. I am looking forward to continuing to be a member and actively enjoy the videos, the guides and all the information that you and the group provide.”
“I found the membership very useful to prepare myself for upcoming DClinPsy interviews. The group meetings really helped me to understand how to structure my answers better. Especially the vignette interview practice gave me a starting point to get prepared for the interviews. I was getting very anxious and apprehensive thinking about previously failed attempts. Being part of the group helped me to feel positive towards the interview process. And its such a lovely community. Everyone is very kind and encouraging. It is exactly an environment an aspiring psychologist needs and I would definitely recommend this to others. Thank you very much for doing this Marianne and I am very grateful to be part of the group.”
