I am an A-Level student currently studying psychology at AS Level at Harris City Academy Crystal Palace.
I am very interested in gaining as much experience as I can before I head of to university and have a passion for Psychology.
My school have recently allocated a date in which I should be participating in work experience, the dates are as following: 14th July 2015 to 17th July 2015.
Although this week would be best, I am very enthusiastic about gaining experience in this field of work and looking forward to understanding more about psychology, so am always available if this is short notice and will be willing to continue to volunteer after the placement.
I will be happy to assist in/with pretty much anything, and can work in situations under pressure while being organised.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Elsa Geyer

Hi Elsa,
Thank you for your email regarding the possibility of work experience. We are really sorry but we are unable to offer a placement due to issues around patient confidentiality.
However, we wish you good luck in finding an opportunity.

I am currently under cognitive behavioural therapy with CAMHS in Bromley and I am physically appalled by the mistreatment that I have personally encountered. Last June I was referred by my previous therapist and GP to Camhs. I eventually got a therapist with Camhs in February. I had a total of 3 sessions before my therapist, *** fell ill and hasn't returned. It is now July and I have heard nothing since late March. I am severely struggling with my mental illness to the extent where my medication has been increased by a total of 20mg. I was told via phone call that I would hear something 'soon' in regards to having a new therapist in the time *** was unavailable. The lack of communication has left me feeling desperate and alone. I was pushed through to child counselling even though I was 18 because I was considered an 'emergency case'. I am physically and emotionally drained constantly with no outlet. I have been left with nothing and nobody. I have contacted my Local GP as a last resort for this scenario as I feel as though I have been freely abandoned with nothing else to fall back on.

Dear Jordan

We're really concerned to hear this, and are very sorry that you have had this experience with us. We wanted to let you know that we are investigating your situation, and we will be in touch with you today to resolve this as soon as possible.

best wishes
