Developcontacts within the industryand have a plan but don’t betoo rigid about sticking to it■ Research the role, job orindustry that you decide youwant to change into and talkto others in the industrySarah SharplesDanya Braunsteinwent fromworking asa TV producerto acareer asa psychologist. Picture: JEREMY PIPERWHILE Danya Braunsteinmisses the excitement ofworking as a television pro-ducer, she wanted to changecareers to help people.The Waverton residentwent back to university tocomplete a post-graduatediploma of psychology andspent more than two yearscompleting more than 2000hours of unpaid practicalwork experience. She didstints working as a TV pro-ducer to supplement herincome during that time.But the 31-year-olddoesn’t miss the stress andthe minimum 50-hourweeks she used to put inworking on reality showssuch as Australia Idol andThe Biggest Loser.‘‘I had forgotten that Iwanted to become a psychol-ogist and I got quite caughtup in TV being my careerand . . . One day I was at theBiggest Loser and was inter-viewing some of the contest-ants . . . They had issuesthey were trying to over-come as they felt that is whythey were overweight andthey couldn’t control theirweight and I started to thinkabout the psychologicalnature of that and how inthe positions I was in Icouldn’t actually do much tohelp them,’’ she said.The now registered psy-chologist worked in a men-tal health facility beforestarting work at the Univer-sity of NSW researchinginfant development.Despite bringing skillsover from her previous ca-reer, such as being comfort-able asking questions, therehave been challenges.‘‘My first client that wassuicidal was a huge chal-lenge — to really think weare not just talking aboutpeople’s emotions andhealth (like in reality TV) —but fundamentally I’m re-sponsible for trying to helpsomeone stay alive, that’s achange,’’ she said.Ms Braunstien has set upher own practise, Con-nected Media Psychology inCrows Nest, drawing on herprevious career to offertreatment for people work-ing in the media and enter-tainment industries andthose who have developedproblems with technology.Wrought ironBUILDERS AND TRADESPEOPLEThe Office of Fair Trading requires Builders andTradespeople’s advertisements to include:ț Name as shown on licenceț Licence numberț Category of work2008030v1Community ServicesEducation and tuitionA+ All Maths Physics Chemteacher in your home.
