    Great video, nice to see your channel growing. I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure aps removed 4+2 as an option.

    Just wondering, what’s the difference between a psychologist and a counselor if they both focus on talking therapy?

    Thanks for offering this helpful guidance and clarification. As a psychologist myself, I would definitely recommend this profession, especially if you want to become a psychologist because you already are, in a sense…because you live and breathe it…because you are naturally fascinated by human behavior… because the ways in which you are intelligent primes you to understand people and social dynamics…because you love supporting people and gleaning insight into the nature of human experience and behavior… I LOVE what I do.

    I love your channel. Thank you so much, it is very helpful.

    I'm so passionate about psychology since I was in high school, now at 23 I'm thinking about studying it and helping people from refugee background in Australia (like me).
    but I have what I would call a mild social anxiety, like I can't stand group discussions and this sort of activities. Honestly I'm afraid my anxiety will stop me from doing what I love. Any tips for those who struggle with anxiety?
