  1. I thought it would be useful to create a space for those who have applied for MEd - COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY at OISE this year. Hope doing this will help me not to stress much during the waiting period lol! This is my second time applying to the program, and last year I was put on waitlist. Keep our fingers crossed and good luck to all of people who have applied!
  2. Hello, I have two questions, haha First, I’m wondering if it would be worth upgrading my GPA for a masters in counselling psychology m.Ed. at the University of Alberta. I completed a psychology with honours degree in 2019 with an 81% (3.3 gpa). I have a lot of applicable volunteer and work experience earned during and after my degree. I know that for most programs 3.7 is the competitive average. So I’m concerned that this could effect my chances. Second, if I were to upgrade my gpa by taking some more psychology courses, would it be better to take them through the U of A or at the institution I completed my undergraduate degree? Thank you for any feedback!😊
  3. Hi guys! I am very interested in the Doctorate Program offered by the Counselling Psychology Department at TCD, Ireland. I was wondering if anyone could share their experience there? Also, I heard that there is difficulty obtaining work permits for international students, can anyone shed light on that? Finally, is it necessary to be registered with the Psychological Society of Ireland prior to applying for the program? Answers to these would be much appreciated!
  4. Hi there!! ? I am looking into doing an MSW( and maybe the MSW/JD) at York or U of T, or the MEd in Counselling Psychology at OISE !!! I am looking into these programs w the hopes of providing anti-oppressive, feminist therapy in the future. I am also really interested in working with incarcerated folks. I am finishing up an honours in women's studies, and did my research on first-person narrative as a tool of restorative justice and personal healing. I'm looking for current or past students to discuss the benefits of each program! Some questions to start, How did you like the program? Strengths/Weaknesses? What was your background and/or goals going in? Where/How was your placement? Where are you at now? Pls reach out if you would be open to chatting w me ?
  5. Hello! I thought I would make a thread for those of us who have applied for MA/ME.d Counselling Psychology programs in Canada for Fall 2017! I applied to six BC schools for Counselling Psychology: UBC, UVIC, UNBC, TRU, SFU, and Adler. Haven't heard back from any yet :(. Did anyone else apply to these schools? Thanks 0
  6. Hello, I am wondering if there are any Canadian students out there that have applied to Masters programs at the University of Victoria, OISE, UOttawa, McGill, or any other universities that offer this program. I am currently an undergrad student finishing my last year, doing my honours thesis, and would like to gain insight on what applicants experiences have with applying, attending these schools, what professors they would recommend, any other universities they would recommend, etc. Personal details such as GPA, honours thesis, references, etc would be great to hear about so I can judge my chances! Just a little bit of guidance throughout the process would be great!!! I appreciate the time!
  7. hi everyone! I recently sent in my application for OISE’s MEd Counselling and Psychotherapy program and plan on applying to Ottawa’s Counselling MEd program as well. My anxiety has been and will be through the roof until springtime when the rejection/acceptance letters are mailed out!!! My GPA in my fourth year was 3.7, with my cumulative GPA being around 3.6. Following completing my Honors BA, I took a post-graduate certificate at Humber College in Mental Health, and I also have volunteer experience at various hospitals, as well as at mental health organizations. I think my references are strong but I still can’t take the agony of waiting this long!!! Does anyone have any insight as to the acceptance process in either of these programs? Does anyone previously accepted to either of these programs care to share their GPA’s and relevant work/volunteer experiences?
  8. Hi all, I just joined grad cafe because I am quite honestly extremely overwhelmed by the application process. I am applying to both counselling psychology and clinical mental health master's programs. My main concerns lie within being able to present myself as an ideal candidate when I don't have any research experience that defines a narrow scope of interest or expertise. I have done my due diligence in finding programs that don't require previous research experience; however, when reviewing examples of statements of intent, I find that most people have a clear interest that sets them apart. I suppose my question is how I can take my various interests/experiences and turn them into a selling point that is cohesive. For instance, I am gaining counselling experience at a distress centre so I am interested in trauma and crisis intervention; I work with a clinical psychologist completing intakes and diagnostic interviews under his supervision; I have some experience mentoring immigrant youth, which has led me to want to work with multicultural/diverse populations; and I've done some peer support with those affected by cancer, which has led to the desire to counsel those suffering from chronic illness, or dealing with loss and bereavement. Would it be unwise for me to express that I would like to further explore these varying interests during my studies in order to determine what path I would like to take? I am simply confused and uninformed about how all of this works so any advice on how you would approach the situation would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
  9. In September I will be starting my 4th year at a university in Ontario taking Psychology. I want to do primarily therapy - not so much interested in research, but its not a closed option. 90 average throughout university so far, honours thesis and undergraduate research experience. Volunteering at a seniors centre. I am taking my GRE in September but I have NO idea where I even want to go to graduate school. I don't even really understand the difference between clinical and counselling psychology and which is better for what I want to do. All I hear is that clinical opens more doors/higher salary ect. I know I need to start contacting supervisors but I'm not even sure how the whole thing works - do I apply to a masters program first, or directly to a PhD? I feel lost because I'm not even sure what program I should be going in to! Do masters programs even need a supervisor? Ideally my day would consist of therapy 100%, whether working under someone else, or ideally private practise of my own. I have a strong interest in working with a senior population and primarily in a health psychology related spectrum. Ie: coping with health problems/patient doctor communication ect. Please, I would appreciate any guidance possible. I'm starting to really freak out.
  10. Hey everyone, Are there any past or current Western MA/MEd Counselling Psychology students who could speak to this program's interview process? I would appreciate any advice on how to best prepare. I believe it's a three person interview panel and I've consulted this resource http://www.unc.edu/~mjp1970/Mitch%27s%20Grad%20School%20Advice.pdf but it's an American Clinical Psyc doctoral document. Besides reviewing my CV, Statement of Interest, and practicing for standard interview Q's (what are your strengths, etc), was the vibe of the interview more focused on the applicant's research interests or was it geared to more practical clinical experience? As an interviewee, were you expected to know how to respond to scenario based/ethical questions (ie. what would you do if a client mentioned that they wanted to harm themselves, etc)? Any advice would be much appreciated. If you haven't interviewed at Western but have interview experience from other Canadian Counselling Psyc programs, please feel free to share how to best prepare for this. Thanks guys and good luck!
