We are holding a reflective group where three people will be sharing their stories about their journey towards Clinical Psychology. The group will provide a space for everyone to discuss what they feel is important, learn about the route into Clinical Psychology, and ask any question. This group is aimed at students who are in Years 11 to 13, particularly those from diverse backgrounds or those who are under-represented in Clinical Psychology, training and practice. However, this event is open to all and free to attend.

Becoming an Anti-Racist Practice
On 21st October 2020, we held a CPD event on ‘Becoming an Anti-Racist Practice’. We were overwhelmed by the great response, stimulating discussion and passion of the participants.
We hope to run this event again in the future. For more information on this, please do contact Headspace Guildford on firstname.lastname@example.org
“Counselling is an act of social justice. Therapy is political. To acknowledge our clients’ lived experiences of how power, privilege and oppression. To be blind to societal and structural inequality is to be blind to your client’s truth”.
The event on ‘Becoming an Anti-Racist Practice’ aimed to share with others some of the work we had been doing as a practice on becoming anti-racist and engaging with a social justice agenda. We are just at the beginning of this journey and still have a lot to learn. We have invested time in our work to think about and challenge our own position both as therapists and as part of a profession. We strive to improve ourselves in the face of growing evidence and acknowledge we have some way to go.
