What kind of Career paths can utilise a skill in psychology?

Hi Lewis, A qualification in psychology would open numerous doors. For example, teaching, counselling, occupational ( helping businesses to improve employee welfare and satisfaction), sports teams, ( improve motivation), and also clinical (helping people to deal with mental health conditions). An accreditation with the British Psychological society would be very useful. Hope this is helpful.
