Dear sherya,

Psychologist need to be someone who can help other to solve there problems in best possible way. Apart from a good education you need to have those counseling skills in you, to handle all sorts of clients. Clinical psychologist are someone who take cases related to substance abuse, mental retarded , severe chronic problems, personality disorders etc etc . For this you need to have good practical skills , strong mental level, physically fit, and of course qualification.

After your master's you can start as intern under any clinical psychologist.And learn practical skills.

You can enroll yourself for PHD program and keep working along with it. If not interested in Phd than you can do some PG diploma courses in Clinical psychology, Counseling psychology, Rehabilitation psychology, Counseling skills or any specialized course according to your interest.

If interested in teaching , B.ed special education or Mphil are good options.

All the best
