This episode is the fifth and final chapter of the early career psychologist series, showcasing early career psychologists who are either completing their training, or in their early years of working. These psychologists have come from all different backgrounds and have vastly different life experiences. I love how in this small sample of seven, you get a sense of the diversity of individuals that come to this profession. Each interviewee reminded me of the sheer determination and hard work it takes to become a psychologist, something we should pat ourselves on the back for achieving regularly! In this episode I chatted to Emily Green, a 27 year old from Brooklyn, New York.  Emily graduated with her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in May 2016 from Yeshiva University in the Bronx, NY. In the US, to obtain a license to practice, you are required to pass the EPPP (Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology) after you've received your degree.  Emily completed hers in April 2017.  She is currently completing her doctoral training (a years worth of supervised clinical hours) at a community mental health centre.  This role involves working with children, adults and families from diverse cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic communities.  She described her clients as representing the "whole gamut of pathology" from depression and anxiety, to substance abuse disorders, and psychotic-spectrum disorders.

This episode is the fourth of a series of five chapters with early career psychologists. They’re either completing their training, or are in their early years of working, and come from all different backgrounds with vastly different life experiences. I love how in this small sample of seven people, you get a sense of the diversity of individuals that come to this profession. After publishing just 6 of these interviews you’ll see what I mean!   Each person reminds me of the sheer determination and hard work it takes to become a psychologist, something we should pat ourselves on the back for achieving, regularly! In this episode I chatted to Rose Evans, 51 year old mum of 4 (her kids are aged between 23 and 10), owner of 3 chickens and 2 beagles. I also chat to Anastasia Hronis who is 25,  and as well as being a psychologist is a professional pianist! Rose lives in Northwest Sydney and is in her first year of general registration.  She works in a variety of different roles including in private practice at PSYCHmatters in Concord and at a small clinic in West Pennant Hills; director at CAE Psychological Profiling; National Supervising Psychologist for Australian Mensa; and marking for Charles Sturt Uni.  Rose also mentors provisional psychologists, which is one of her areas of passion!

Anastasia currently works in a private practice and at St John of God Hospital where she runs group day programs (anxiety groups, depression groups and DBT).  She also works as a musician, has two music performance degrees and has spent time teaching piano and also working as a concert pianist. This is essentially what got her interested in psychology, as she was very curious as to how the mind worked, and how people and children learnt. Anastasia was keen to do this interview because she's a huge fan of the podcast and find it inspiring hearing what other people do.  She says "I'm constantly amazed by the diversity within the field of psychology."

Today my guest is Clay Cockrell, LCSW, a therapist based in New York City. Six years ago, Clay began his journey into the online world by the creation of Online Marital Counseling (www.maritalcounseling.com), where he works with couples all over the world to improve and/or salvage their broken relationships. He and his clients have found it incredibly valuable, particularly when the couple is living apart (perhaps as expats) or having scheduling issues that prevent them from engaging in traditional couples counseling. As Clay chatted to colleagues about the benefits of online counselling it became evident many didn't’ know what it was or liked the idea but were fearful or put off by the technological side. In 2016 he founded Onlinecounselling.com – a listing directory with the mission of helping clients all over the world to find the therapist or life coach that will best meet their needs. The site also provides educational resources and podcasts to help counselors work online in an ethical, responsible and legal manner. Whilst clearly savvy with technology, Clay is also one for the outdoors. He started his career as the creator of Walk and Talk Therapy (www.walkandtalk.com). Instead of meeting in a traditional office, he conducts counseling sessions while walking through Central Park in NY. ABC’s Good Morning America, CNN and New York Times were interested in walkandtalk.com and Clay’s other endeavours as was I. So let’s see how we all wear it differently with Clay Cockrell.

Today I’m speaking with Dr Jodie Fleming, who is a Clinical and Health Psychologist currently working at St John of God Health Care in Warrnambool, as well as running her own small private practice. In Jodie’s early career in Newcastle NSW, she developed an interest in psycho-oncology an area which she pursued, starting out working with CanTeen, and then later working with families at the John Hunter Children's Cancer Hospital. As with any person regularly exposed to particular health issues, one can become acutely aware of their own health and wellbeing. For Jodie this meant regular checkups with her doctor, and an increased awareness of any changes to her physicality. In 2010, Jodie received her own cancer diagnosis. She relocated back home, to Victoria, to be closer to her family, and figured out a way in which she could continue working, whilst embarking on her own journey of survival. Jodie was determined to continue working, and whilst there were many challenges Jodie says that in a way her work also saved her. This was 6 years ago and Jodie is now well and thriving. Jodie has rediscovered her passion and the healing potential of writing and in March this year, she launched her blog ‘The Psychology of It’ where she writes about psychology in five different styles, with the view of connecting, human to human. Visit the website to check out all the links that Jodie spoke about and her best self-care tip! Thank you Jodie for your courage in sharing your story.

This is Episode 3 of the new Q and A series with psychologist Moshe Lang, one of Australia’s best known family therapists, renowned author and teacher. Every fortnight WAWID listeners send me questions to ask Moshe. These questions can be be about anything to do with his journey (over 52 years as a psychotherapist), therapy in general, or the field of mental health. Moshe is an incredibly curious person, and loves a challenge.  He's willing to tackle any question sent his way. This weeks questions are: Do you think that one of the reasons people visit a psychologist is because they no longer feel that they are experts (i.e. in control) in their own lives? In my experience people readily offer solutions to other’s problems but these are seldom helpful. You assist people to find a solution that they own as theirs. They can then learn how to resolve new issues more easily. Do you agree with this? What techniques do you use to help people in this process? I understand that yoga is an important part of your life. Can you share some of your thoughts about yoga and its relevance to psychotherapy? For more information on Moshe check out the show notes and post a question under the episode!

This is Episode 2 of the new Q and A series with psychologist Moshe Lang, Australia's best known family therapist, renowned author and teacher. Every fortnight WAWID listeners send me questions to ask Moshe. These questions can be be about anything to do with his journey, therapy or in the field of mental health. Moshe is an incredibly curious person, and loves a challenge - he tells me he'll tackle anything sent his way. This weeks questions are: 1) What advice would you give to family and friends who have a loved one going through depression or anxiety? They play a crucial support role yet are rarely included as part of an ongoing plan. 2) Starting from a broad perspective, I would love to know what advice Moshe has for a 'mature ' starter in the field of therapy. I think I've said here before that my later life journey to Psychology is really about self-actualization. I genuinely feel that I am in the process of becoming what/who I am meant to be. The question (about bloody time, Jim!), is how do I utilise the life experience that I have to help others, in a world of psychology that seems so fixated on A+B = C? All of our training seems to be focused on method or 'X' theory, rather than the reality of human interaction that Moshe so beautifully illustrates in his discussions with you. I'm half way through Honours and I'm genuinely concerned that in order to work, I'll need to join some school of thought (i.e, CBT, EMDR) that has been proven (and do work, don't get me wrong ), but to me, are empty of human empathy, compassion and connection.  How do emerging Psychologists boldly become Mongrel/Bitsa qualified?  For more information on Moshe or to send in a question please check out the website.
