Careers in the psychological therapies

Careers in the psychological therapies

One in four people will suffer from a mental illness at some point in their lives. This can range from mild conditions, such as anxiety, to severe depression or more rare and complex conditions such as bipolar disorder. If you work in the psychological therapies, you could help people cope with problems as diverse as drug or alcohol addiction, eating disorders, family breakdown or bereavement. Helping individuals to understand their condition and develop ways to cope with or overcome their problems and lead a normal life can offer real job satisfaction. The psychological therapies include branches of psychology related to healthcare, such as clinical or health psychology, counselling and psychotherapy roles and jobs within Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services. If you have an interest in how people think and behave and want to use the study of psychology to help people with mental ill health, a career in the psychological therapies could be for you.

Careers in nursing

Careers in nursing

If you want to work in an environment that’s interesting, rewarding and challenging, then a career in nursing will give you plenty of scope to do exactly that. Nurses form the largest group of staff in the NHS and are a crucial part of the healthcare team. Nurses work in every sort of health setting from accident and emergency to working in the community, in patients’ homes or schools, with people of all ages and backgrounds. Some nurses begin their career in support roles, which require no set professional qualifications to start with, and go on to do a registered nursing degree, which qualifies them to work as a nurse. Others apply straight to university to undertake their studies. Whatever route you take, you’ll need to gain a degree in nursing, during which the NHS will support you financially.
