I need to do an interview for my university. Can I ask a few questions about how you became a counselor ?
What advice would you provide an aspiring psychologist or therapist?
Here are my answers to your questions:
What advice would you provide an aspiring psychologist or therapist? Get as much hands on training as you can. Your academic training is just one part of the equation. Never think you know it all. Be humble. Be aware that you have the capacity to harm or help another person with what you say and do.
I need your name please.
I am sorry JustAnswer/Pearl does not allow us to identify ourselves in that manner.
What you can do is to give your professor the following information if they want to check with me about my responses.
You could run a copy of our chat...which you can do from your account. And then they will see this note from me.
I am a licensed psychologist from mid-western U.S.A.
I have been in practice for nearly 30 years.
How is that?
