Psych Careers Ep.2 – German to British Psychologist & CBT trainee | #AikaAsks
This week I’ve interviewed my good friend Josefine on her journey from moving from Germany to England. After finally gaining her registration in the UK as both a clinical and counselling psychologist, she is now training as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist within the NHS. In this video she gives tips on the equivalency process and loving the journey over the goal.
Grab a cuppa and hope you enjoy!
