My Psychotherapy Career: The evolution of a psychotherapeutic career

Your psychotherapeutic career can expand way beyond clinical work.

In this episode, Helen Willingham, our head of content and engagement, talks to UKCP member Melinda Powell. Melinda talks about the progression of her psychotherapeutic career, her specialism in dreams and what led her to focus on non-clinical work.

‘If you’re making that change from clinical to non-clinical, make haste slowly. There’s no rush, take your time. What I did do is phase out over time, working with fewer and fewer clients and less involved directly with the clinical aspect of supervision. So, it was again a devolution in that sense, a process over time.’
