Let's learn about the typical day of a Psychologist in their own words:

9:00 am: I read the e-mails and other notifications before I get ready for my research presentation. It is important to stay updated and not missing any urgent query from the clients.



9:30 am: I meet my co-workers and other psychologists and see the day's plan for the assessments and the treatments.

10:30 am: I work on the summary of the people have provided counseling or psychological treatment. I also finish other paper work pending.

12:00 noon: I take the first session of the day. I understand the person, by carefully listening and then strategically come to the problem and then work on the solution part. I hope I have done a good job here.



1:00 pm: After an interesting session, I think I should eat as well. I call my friends to come and join me over lunch. It's fun. We discuss the cases we have at the moment and take each others' point of view in to consideration.
Businesspeople having lunch indoors.

2:00 pm: I get back to the work. The feedback provided by the client is important. So I read it carefully.

3:00 pm: A young girl shows up for the counseling. She is not feeling good at school and is disturbed about it. My challenge here is not just to provide her assistance but also give her the motivation. The session is really exciting but it squeezed out all my energy.



4:00 pm: I have to present my research work today at my workplace. It's the time. I explain the research and present a PPT. Everyone looks impressed. Well done.

5:00 pm: There are few other paper works pending. The sessions that I took, require more work in terms of analysis and the summary. I am working on it.

6:00 pm: Seems like I have finished everything. Of course untill tomorrow, when I will have more challenges coming my way.

Typical day of psychologists vary individual to individual according to their specialization.

For example, school counselor will have different routine than industrial psychologist. Those psychologist who teach would have different schedule than those who have their private practice.

Depending upon specialization, in general, psychologists deal with clients, engage in assessment and psychotherapy, training, teaching and research.

Hope I have answered your queries.

Best Wishes for your career,
