You know where you hope this train will take you, but you don't know for sure.

Around Thanksgiving, I was given a temporary full-time staff position at a well-known university research lab. (See this question.) Well, I've been officially offered a job as a proper member of the lab, tuition benefits and all. This is quite literally the best opportunity I've ever had. I'm extremely interested in the field of clinical psychology and eventually becoming some kind of therapist. Where do I go from here? [more inside]

So I'm an impostor.

I've written the standard textbook about a topic. I'm teaching a regular class at a college (in summer) and at a research university (winter term), as well as some summer school courses. Instructor of record, giving exams, all those things. I'm rather good at it, or so I think - at least for being hired as a so-called outside expert. Yet I'm incredibly anxious about this and feeling like an impostor. One of the reasons? Well, nobody knows, but when I'm not a lecturer, I'm still a freaking undergrad who is failing most of her classes. [more inside]

Giving it the old college try

Can a high-school senior overcome middling grades and hope to get into college and become a nurse or psychologist, or is it too late? We've known a girl, whom I'll call Lisa, since she and our son were in first grade. We lost touch for a while, but we recently reconnected. She is the youngest of four and lives with her mother. None of her siblings nor her mother graduated from high school. Until this year, Lisa was thinking of joining the military after high school, but now she is interested in becoming a nurse or psychologist. My wife and I want to help her get into college. How can we best do that? We are meeting with her school counselor soon. We live in the Denver area. [more inside]

Therapist and psychologist recommendation Swansea

Can someone recommend a good therapist or psychologist in Swansea, Wales, preferably with a background in Asperger's Syndrome? It's important they should communicate by email or text (not just by phone), and it would be nice if they could cope with simultaneous untangling of anxiety/depression, sensory issues, bulimia, seemingly-insurmountable practical problems, a history of PTSD and neglect, and probably a few other things it would be great if they could help me uncover. It would be really helpful if they were also female and gay-friendly. Thank-you. (And by 'thank-you' I mean 'please, please help'.)

My mind likes to dwell on the negative

Help me get over my obsessive feelings of bitterness regarding setbecks and disagreements.
