We are delighted to have Alumni Network Mentors in a range of different professions who will hopefully be useful points of contact for prospective/current students as well as many of you too! We are in the stages of gathering the names of people who could be at hand in the event that someone wishes to speak to them about a particular professional avenue (their preparation, experience and learning). If you wish to put yourself forward, please do get in touch with myself. We’d be delighted to hear from you. Our current categories are:
Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy
Adult Psychotherapies (including adult psychotherapy/psychoanalysis, counselling, hypnotherapy, family therapy)
The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families is hosting an exciting Networking event on Monday May 9th 2016 from 6pm till 8pm which will bring in some of our mentors so you can meet and speak with them.
