Clinical Psychology appointment

Discussion in 'Personal' started by alexpotter, Feb 16, 2011.

  1. Hi, just wondering if any wise people out there can help me - I have been referred to a clinical psychologist by OH and I was wondering what this entails and why they might have chosen this over counselling, which is what I thought I was supposed to be getting.
    Thanks x

    CP's do counselling ...
  3. Thanks, the OH said they had chosen psychology rather than counselling as they felt it would suit the situation better. I assumed that must mean it wasn't the same process?

    It may be a different process. .
    It depends on your circumstances and the reasons behind the referral.
    Contact OH and ask them why they have chosen this route rather than a cousellor if you're not sure or not happy about it.
    Hope it all works out.

    A clinical psychologist is for more deep rooted issues than a counsellor. MIND is a good place to look at descriptions of the different roles.
  6. Thanks all x
  7. I'd dump your other half and find a more supportive one if I were you.
