Marianne's Summer Soundbites – 3

Thank you for listening to the Aspiring Psychologist Podcast.

I hope you find this helpful, no matter where you are in your journey in becoming an aspiring psychologist – whatever this may look like for you!

This episode focuses on another 2 key steps when thinking about being an aspiring qualified psychologist; the significance of self-care, exercise and nature, as well as celebrating achievements, no matter how small. There is also a little reminder about our free compassionate Q&A sessions, and the Aspiring Psychology membership. I hope you find this helpful.
