Q. Why clinical physiology? Tell us about your journey till now?

I had a great experience with a therapist when I was young. I found a therapist who helped me quite effectively. That was when I decided that I wanted to be a psychologist. I have empathy for those who struggle with their mental illness. I find this role very rewarding and it’s my passion. My journey has been amazing, it gives me a purpose in life when I see positive results in people. I feel immense gratification and satisfaction when I see smiling clients more assured and confident about themselves and about their existence.

A clinical psychologist is responsible for a varied set of roles. They are assigned first to identify emotional, psychological, and behavioral issues. This is followed by developing and implementing treatment plans, and the therapeutic process. Also, keep a check on the patient and his/her improvement records. As a clinical psychologist, I prepare every day for a new challenge and try to enable myself to be better prepared in finding a resolution so that I can save someone from being clinically depressed or feeling helpless. As a psychologist, you are often challenged to understand phenomena from a range of different perspectives, which is a useful skill when listening to the thoughts and opinions of others. Fully investing yourself in a process of finding a common understanding between yourself and others encourages resolution.
