Recently we spoke with one of our Clinical Psychologist friends and we got into quite a DEEP discussion around regrets. The responses were INCREDIBLE and EYE OPENING! We are so thrilled that these people were kind enough to take time out to give us such an amazing insight and lessons.
This is an age-old question that we seem to be asked over and over again. “PsychAssist I’ve been offered a job but it’s within a private service and I don’t know if this will hinder me in the future as it’s not a NHS post. What should I do?” Sound familiar? Ok before we get into the pros and cons of working in private practice or the NHS, you must know one thing. BOTH TYPES OF SERVICES ARE VALUED EXACTLY THE SAME IN THE EYES OF YOUR FUTURE EMPLOYER! You will not be hindered if you opt to take a position within a private service or even a charity. As long as you display the ability to reflect on your experience then you’ll be fine.
