    Hi mam..I was previously graduated in psychology for my bachelor's degree and got honor for my degree..however, due to my personal experience in working..I continued my master in English Language for the sake of my question is..can I just continue my PhD in clinical psychology after my master in English? Would it related to the field? Or can I continue with cognitive neuroscience or else? Still finding my interest anyway..

    When your physical body is acting abnormal you would consult with your doctor. The same way when your automobile is acting up you would consult with a mechanic. Why do you do that? Because they have been educated and experienced to diagnostic your problems with your physical body and your automobile. We have been studying and practicing on human anatomy for hundreds of years because our body is tangible therefore, now we are able to recognize what is bothering our body parts then we came up with medicines. Regarding automobile we put those parts together therefore, we can easily diagnostic any problem in our car. Then we came up with "Psychologist" which it has to do with our "Soul", and our "Behavior" although no one has any knowledge about the creation of our innermost "Soul" and no one has seen it nor touched it because it is not tangible yet they want to find out our problems with our "Soul" just by reading some books which they are just conjectures of many people around the world through the years. And by just talking to you and forcing you to take a 6 hours test which it is based for only few people then they think they can diagnostic our problems! Are you kidding?
    Then they send you to some "Therapists" whom they have not seen you before and they have no knowledge about your personal "Soul". Each and every one of us come to this world with a unique "Soul" and body, which is different from one another. I am trying to say that if we feed our body with healthy foods and nutrition we can keep our body healthy but, there is no way what so ever that we can make our "Heart & Soul" to be happy. All because humans were created weak and we have no idea about the creation of our "Soul". Now let me ask you, are you sure that this "Therapist" is not suffering with his or her own problems in their privacy? Are they suffering from alcoholism? Are they going through divorces? Did they just involved in an accident? Did they just got fired from their job? Are they suffering from jealousy? How do you know what kind of environment they have been brought up? Did they have a healthy life before? And millions of what ifs . . As you notice you are trusting your innermost "Soul", the most precious privacy of your "Heart & Soul" with a person who is completely unknown to you. Yet, simply you allow these so called "Therapists" rape your heart and soul and give you their own opinions and judgments without being close friend of you. Do not let these made up business rape your heart and soul and take away your money. The only one who is aware of your innermost "Soul" is your Creator because He created your "Soul". Ask Him to help you and show you the correct way because He created your "Soul" and He is the only one who can make you happy. The reason that you think you have been helped is that 'you just let whatever it was bothering you come out of your mouth' because, this is the only way you get release from your problems. Pay attention please, you allowed what has been bothering you sort of "Constipate" in your "Heart & Soul" for some times therefore, every day passed by your innermost "Soul" has been suffering. Therefore, the best is be your own best friend and just write down what is bothering you or maybe record it and listen to it or just talk to your best friend about your problem. You can solve some of your problems for example If your children have problem at school and they are getting "C" and "Ds" at school just take them out because this forced education within the past 100 years or so make some of your children suffer and it is only going to damage them and lose their confidence amongst other students. Maybe the Almighty has a best plan for them in the near future. We are not created equal and each one of us came to this world with unique personality. All of those older scientists and musicians never did go to school and as you know the most successful people of our time were those school dropouts . Let the Almighty Creator control you and your children's "Heart & Soul" instead of following from your own baseless conjectures and egos and do not trust those so called psychologists either. Now we have the perfect scientifically proven scripture based on mathematics, the exact science with 1500 pages of pure mathematics to prove these facts.

    You forgot to mention licensed marriage and family therapists. Therapist is an umbrella term for PhD, PsyD, LMFT, LPCC, LCSW. Doctorate and master level. Emphasis in training and orientation is different. But all are qualified to provide therapy.

    PsyDs are not "exclusively" clinical. There are a number of PsyD programs that require empirical dissertations and many willl provide education in statistics and research methods. The big difference is between focusing on production of research for the majority of school (PhDs) and learning how to consume and, in some cases, produce research on a more limited scale in favor of clinical work (PsyD)

    The reason mothers are a bigger issue for most people isn't evolution – it's society. We evolved in communities where children were raised by many adults and breastfed by multiple women. The way society is structured today means that if your biological mother is unable to consistently meet your developmental needs (and kids have a lot of them!) then in many cases you have no one else to go to, especially if your father abandons you or is unavailable. Children born today are robbed of the community that once raised them and collectively ensured their needs were met – and those were the conditions that shaped our evolution.

    I wanted to make a statement… I noticed something strange. I noticed that a lot of professionals adopt the speech pattern of a psychologist, even when they don't have the intention to be a listener and a caregiver to that persons well-being. So much of the dialogue of a psychologist is parroted. It's very wrong that professionals outside of this branch of healing do this. It makes a mockery of the occupation, since a person develops a notion of "If I can articulate myself to sound like a psychologist, people will think I'm wise enough for them to trust in my advocacy that I dispense to them". It's a breeding ground for charlatans, manipulators, and other concerning behaviors.
