I’ve been inundated with emails and enquiries from fellow Psychology professionals (mostly Psychometrists in South Africa) about my move across to the United Kingdom. In an effort to support my peers as far as I can, I decided to create this blog to answer your questions collectively.
This article is by NO MEANS a piece to try and sell the UK to you. Not at all. However, given the sheer volume of emails I’ve received, I thought it best to share all my learnings with you. This article is simply here to give you the ins and outs of what your registration looks like here in England, and what your work prospects may look like.
We all have stuff we’re dealing with. As the cliché goes, if everyone had to put their problems under a tree and you could see them, you’d very quickly go and reclaim yours again.
What I’ve learned though is that we cannot change what happens to us, but we sure as hell can change the way in which we respond. There have been days where I’m just like, “you know what, I actually can’t adult today” and the thought of pulling the covers over my head sounds far sexier then facing another day. However, by shifting your focus and realigning your experience of life, you CAN change your attitude. You CAN change your experience. And you CAN, indeed, find happiness within yourself… even if you feel like you have a mountain of crap on your shoulders in this very moment in time.
I’m not professing to cure your state of disillusionment; I can’t promise to change your life. Only you can do that. Through my experience as a health professional and somewhat of a book fanatic, I’ve fleshed out some tried-and-tested techniques on how to shift your paradigm of thought.
