If you prefer the idea of treating behavioural, emotional and psychological problems then clinical psychology could be the answer. Your job will be to study how people think and behave, dealing with a wide range of health problems, both mental and physical, which can include addiction, anxiety, learning difficulties and depression.
Through observation, interviews and various techniques (such as cognitive behavioural therapy) you will work in partnership with your patients to treat and manage their condition, usually over the space of several sessions. Working with individuals of varied ages, backgrounds and with differing behavioural and emotional problems means that you’ll need excellent people skills and adaptability, building relationships with your patients.
Again, variety is a key word as you could find yourself based anywhere from hospitals and clinics and health centres, all the way to social services, schools, prisons and community health teams.
