    Do I need a license to practice psychology?

    I have done my M.Sc in psychology and want to open my own consultant office. Is my certificate enough to start this profession? Or do i need license to practice psychology? Is there any higher course that can be done to be psychologist?

    Hi friend
    A postgraduation degree is enough to run a psychology consultancy.
    Working in psychology typically requires a bachelor's degree at minimum. Psychology programs include coursework in neuroscience, perception and psychological specialties, such as social and clinical.
    Most states require individuals running a private practice to have Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) or a Doctor of Psychology ( Psy.D. ). WhilePh.D. programs focus moreso on research, Psy.D. programs are geared towards clinical practice. Prospective school psychologists may need to earn an educational specialist degree, which includes academic and experience requirements.
    All the best.

    Hi friend,

    You need to get a valid license in order to open the psychology centre.

    As you have done M.SC in pyschology all you need to do is register with the government in order to get the license.

    There is also another higher degree that you can do after M.Sc in psychology i.e, M.PHill in psychology with only one subject as your profession.

    So my dear friend your certificate is enough in order to open the psychology centre but you need to register with the government in order to open the center.

    In order to get the good psychology center you need to have all these:-

    1. Evaluate your business and clinical skills.

    2. Build a client base and establish a referral network with marketing strategies.

    3. Identify a location and set up your office. Find a office location that is within your budget.

    4. Manage your finances by creating a business plan.

    5. Get a advice from another psychologist who is running his or her own private practice.

    All the best my friend.

    THanking you...
