    Completely agree Dave re: burnout, it's s big risk in mental health but most people seem to think us psychologists are immune. But I've felt close to it at times. Sadly the management don't understand what we do and therefore the need for breaks and holidays etc. working over is expected although they will never say this, but the job is not manageable without it.

    I loved working with children, but there's no doubt that being locked up with about 30 of them for 30 hours a week isn't a 'normal' experience, or an easy one.

    I also felt the tensions in my later career, when more of the curriculum was imposed from above, because I was used to doing things in depth, not flitting about in the ways that became fashionable. I know things have gone full circle now, but during that period when SATs results became the main focus, almost everything I'd stood for seemed to be under attack and it was very disheartening.

    No doubt the same sorts of thing have happened in the NHS with targets, quotas and so on. Everyone likes the results if they 'improve,' and no one may question sufficiently just how they were achieved! :rotfl:

    Dave, would you consider tutoring or would you rather be doing something else?

    I've never done any tutoring. I've no objections to others doing it, but I never wanted to charge privately for teaching.

    I suppose this goes back to my days in primary school and having extra maths lessons at the home of a very stern, somewhat bearded lady, called Miss Braddick.

    There was nothing Miss Braddick didn't know about fractions, but I was just very scared and spent most of my time quaking at the scariness of her dark, Victorian house and the weirdness of her facial hair. :eek:

    If I learned anything, it was simply so that I could stop going there!:rotfl:

    Fay, a friend our ours is training to be a therapist , and he said it is mentally and emotionally draining...SL they have group talks to make sure they can cope with people they are trying to help,

    I take my hat off to people who try to help people through their emotions and trauma that they have been through...
