Werner Erhard and Associates v. Christopher Co...Have you ever wondered what’s involved in studying to become a psychologist or what it’s like to do research? Well, you’ve come to the right place!

I started this blog in my Honours year (2011) to mark the journey and to help keep its challenges in perspective. When I began my Clinical PhD in 2012, I decided to keep going with the blog.  Now that I’ve completed my training, the focus of the blog is shifting a bit, but continuing to grow. Read on for  an eclectic mix of posts about the day to day training involved on the road to becoming  a psychologist, the experience of completing a PhD and the journey of an early career psychologist.

You can click on theHonours Year tab to follow the speed bumps I faced, battles won and occasional tips shared in my Honours year. For some light-hearted fun don’t forget to check out Psychology Honours the Musical,  You know you are an Honours student when… and A very serious topic…Stationery Part 1 and 2.

If you click on The PhD Years you can follow the marathon that was my five year journey to become a researcher and practitioner in psychology. These posts cover everything from beginning to learn about psychological testing and becoming a tutor to research a lá moon boot! Probably the most important post for anyone contemplating a PhD now or in the future is this one here: Contemplating a PhD? Please read this.

The Early Career section features my latest posts covering my journey as a psychologist following the completion of my postgraduate training. I cover the job hunt, transition from student to practitioner and learning to support people managing suicidality. There’s also a rather long post that explains all the different things a psychologist actually does in their day to day working life.
