My Psychotherapy Career: Overcoming the challenges of psychotherapy training

You don’t have to sacrifice your personal joy and self-care to succeed in the long term.

In this episode, Helen Willingham, head of content and engagement, talks to UKCP psychotherapist Luq Adejumo. Luq shares how he balanced training and full-time work while pursuing a career in psychotherapy that would allow him more autonomy.

Luq reflects on his training and how he went about setting up his own private practice.

‘If you’re in private practice, you’re running your own mini business, and that’s one thing I had to get my head around quite quickly, even though I had been an operations director in a large business.’
