This paper represents the final phase of a journey within a self-directed problem-based learning group occurring on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology Programme based at the University of Hertfordshire. It provides personal reflections from the trainees and trainers on the process of this type of experiential learning. We explore themes related to this experience, such as the emotional experiences evoked and strategies used to manage these; issues of power and responsibility; and the transitory nature of these experiences. We conclude with implications for the participation and facilitation of experiential learning groups within clinical training.
