Counseling psychology as a psychological specialty facilitates personal and interpersonal functioning across the life span with a focus on emotional, social, vocational, educational, health-related, developmental, and organizational concerns. Through the integration of theory, research, and practice, and with a sensitivity to multicultural issues, this specialty encompasses a broad range of practices that help people improve their well-being, alleviate distress and maladjustment, resolve crises, and increase their ability to live more highly functioning lives. Counseling psychology is unique in its attention both to normal developmental issues and to problems associated with physical, emotional, and mental disorders.So Basically,a psychologist's job is to listen and try to understand how things are from the clients point of view. They give their client's the utmost respect. Psychologists are people to talk to and get advice from about any type of problem you may be having in your life
What inspired me to be a psychologist is that I want to help people. I been through a lot in my life just at the age of 17. I can listen to what they say and give opinion on it from my point of view. I really want to help and try to make others happy again.I am a person who is very interested in psychology because I like helping and caring for people a lot with their personal or psychological problems to help them understand themselves. I am known as the most caring one in the circle of my friends because when they have problems, I usually picture myself in their shoes and I can easily pick up how they are feeling emotionally. I love helping people and the idea of having this career is just amazing. Knowing that people out there who are sad and depressed about their problems has deepened my interest towards the field of pychology. So I can plan my future educational years to explore and aim for major on this subject. What Inspired me to become a Psychologist? Graduate High School
