A psychologist is a specialist who helps to find peace of mind and balance. It makes it easier for people to experience stress and emotional trauma.
What does a psychologist do?
The main task of a psychologist is to listen. Exactly. A good psychologist does not give any advice, has no ready-made solutions, does not teach, and does not force anything. It simply gives a person the opportunity to speak, cry or even laugh – anything, so that the “patient” finds the answers to their questions and unravels the tangle of their own problems.
But of course, the psychologist directs the conversation in the right direction, “reads” the signals that the patient “gives” and helps to focus on those moments that should help to find peace of mind. At the same time, the specialist does not give any personal assessments of the situation. Psychologists take tests to help identify the needs of individuals, keep records, and share experiences with colleagues.
A psychologist can work:
• in the social sphere or education system: with children, adults, in educational institutions, etc .;
• in the hospital or personal office, in the emergency service;
• in production organizations: with the military, staff psychologists, invited experts, in the personnel management department.
What skills does a psychologist need?
• To become a psychologist, you need to sincerely love people and want to help them.
• It will also require endurance and patience because you have to listen a lot and not complain.
• The psychologist must be able to position himself, inspire confidence, and radiate confidence that everything will be fine 🙂
• The psychologist also needs analytical skills.
• Do not interfere with public speaking skills. If you want to give lectures and improve as a specialist.
