Hi,

Psychology is a field with immense scope and varied applications. Career options are endless and at any point in time, individuals can expand their work to many areas and diversify. To give you a better picture of what you can do to diversify, I need to know in what kind of setting have you been working as a psychologist, what are your current qualitifcations, nature of you experience etc.

As such, psychologists can work in the field of education, academics, learning and development(in the corporate sector), research, NGOs, etc. However it would depend on your qualifications and experience. So please get back regarding the same so I can help you in a better way. Please write back to me regarding your age, qualifications, years of experiences, nature of work you have been doing, job description, your interest areas andyour assets or strong points as a psychologist.

Good luck!

With warm regards.

Many organizations understand this problem and offer enough flexibility to their employees so that they can grow beyond their core areas.
