Hey Dear,

It is good to see that your are interest in the field of Psychology and your willingness to know more about it.


To become a Psychologist you simply need to do a Masters in Psychology after which you become a Psychologist but it is not the sufficient qualification to practice.

See it all depends on your area of Interest in this filed and accordingly you can do a specialization. Then according to your specialization you can see the courses you want to do.

To practice as an Industrial Psychologist you can simply do your masters in the field of psychology with a specialization in the same. Then later on you can even go for doing an MBA if you want.

If you want to practice as a Clinical Psychologist then you will have to complete your maters in the same and later go for an M.Phil in Clinical Psychology from an Institute that is approved from Rehabilitation Council of India or the RCI. After which you can practice as a Clinical Psychologist. You can even opt for doing your PhD in the same area if you want but M.Phil is also a sufficient qualification to work as an expert in this area.

There are many other certification courses or diploma courses or even Advance Diploma courses that you can opt for after your masters in the filed of Psychology. But before entering into the course do see of your course is RCI approved or not.

RCI will give you a licence to practice as an expert if you do any course that is RCI approved. So i would suggest you to do it if you want to have a successful career in the same. Also after sometime most of the organizations will demand you to have a RCI licence as well.

Best course that you can do is in Guidance and Counselling.
The choice is yours.....

Best Wishes!

Hi There,

Please note that these days Psychologists are not just restricted to testing and analysis and therapy through age old ways of counseling.

As a therapists being an all rounder is a must. Thus apart from your regular degree, get certified with the following to help you during your sessions

  • Clinical Hypnotherapy
  • NLP
  • Play Therapy
  • Mid Brain Activation
  • EMDR

These all are effective when you are in the session with your client.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck.........
