Catalina’s Answer

As a clinical psychology you have a lot of responsibility on your patients, you need to develop a good background to understand the problems of the people and formulate a clear case about the person and what are their fields of unadjustment and how you can provide a better guidance to the people to make them find the right answers to their problems, of course in some cases is important that you have support from other fields in the medicine.

If maybe you are a person who get involved with the problems or situations from others could be something difficult for you, because the good part of be a clinical psychology is you really feel how the people advance and change their lives and make their live a little better, and the bad part is when you feel too emotionally charged with that energy and you can't focus on your own life and enjoy other things.

I hope this help you :)

Dr. Reeta’s Answer

My dream career was to become a clinical psychologist and I graduated with my PsyD in clinical psychology 10 years ago. I've been in private practice for the past 7 years and it makes me deeply and truly happy. I set my own hours (I work Monday through Thursday, seeing 6 to 7 clients a day), pick only the clients that I would be a good fit with, and accept major health insurance plans so there's always a constant stream of clients. I turned my private practice digital about 4 years ago so that I could travel while also working and I was able to visit 9 different countries in two years while supporting myself financially because I was still working with my clients. This is the best version of life I ever could have imagined for myself. The work itself is constantly stimulating and I love learning about a ton of different things to be able to use with my clients, which they love as well :)
