"A typical day for a Counseling Psychologist will also include:

Collect information about individuals or clients, using interviews, case histories, observational techniques, and other assessment methods.
Develop therapeutic and treatment plans based on clients’ interests, abilities, or needs.
Advise clients on how they could be helped by counseling.
Analyze data, such as interview notes, test results, or reference manuals, to identify symptoms or to diagnose the nature of clients’ problems.
Supervise interns, clinicians in training, and other counselors."

Sara’s Answer

On a daily basis, Counseling Psychologists counsel individuals, groups, or families to help them understand problems, deal with crisis situations, define goals, and develop realistic action plans. They document patient information including session notes, progress notes, recommendations, and treatment plans.
