  • Fetus Sarah 😍

  • Im just going to enter 10 grade and I really want to take psychology as a course

  • this video is so amazing, thank you

  • this is really helpful! thank you for being so thorough!

  • Very interested in this field. I am so glad I found your channel. I've. Even watching a bunch of different videos just to ensure myself that this is 110% what I want to do. Your videos have been my favorite so far! Lol.

  • if you like CBT, I believe you would love DBT.

  • I am only thirteen yet I have a vague idea my future. I would love to become a lawyer but would also adore studying psychology as I want to become a therapist/councillor.

  • Awesome video! Oh my gosh, I too am so interested in studying the psychopathic mind and serial killers in particular. It might be odd, but it's just something that intrigues me and it's like I want to understand why they do what they do. I'd love to hear your thoughts and research on psychopathy.

    I have my associates in education and I'm considering getting a bachelor's in Psychology, the field of psychology has always intrigued me and I'd love to work with both eating disorders and children who have suffered from abuse. I'm nervous about the psych classes, not so much for the theory of it, but how much math is involved? I'm not the best at mathematics. I have to work really hard at it. Thanks and I'm looking forward to more of your videos.

  • Thanks for your time and effort..very helpful video

  • I am grateful for my suburban home, I am grateful for my desk job. I am grateful for my clean and friendly, unique aura (that Goddess gave me a heart so I could feel something so beautiful and sustaining as Love). Thank You. ζγ‚Œε…₯γ‚ŠγΎγ™

    Sensi, I am grateful that I had the balls to cancel construction while on a call in the office today. The trees and sanctity of the planet is simply more important. Cuter aura, better karma = better business, less vampirism, more true happiness, it wasn't making the corporation look better but worse, we need environmentalism, and therefore we are following a trend and cancelling construction, worldwide, and not only that, we are funding perpetual protection for all current wildlife throughout the entire globe. Aloha

  • can u do a video on the subjects u do in counseling psychology please

  • Thank you for this video, It is very helpfull! πŸ™‚

  • Wanted to be a psychiatrist or have something in bio psychology because I'm taking advanced biology, already took anatomy and am taking a college psychology course my final year of high school but I also want to be a cosmetic surgeon so I'm really confused in what to do. Could you help? I just want advice on this.

  • Your eyes are like piercing obs of heaven

  • I'm thinking of in year nine going to a Newcastle school but it doesn't do forensic psychology which is what I want to do

  • I love this psychology series you're doing! I just started a channel about my experience as a graduate student in psychology if you want to check it out πŸ™‚

  • Hi is it possible to study neurology after studying neuropsychology?

  • Research is phycology! Well said :')

  • I wanted to get my degree in psychology but every time I'd go to sign up for classes the councilors would talk me down from wanting to pursue it.

  • Want more? Get lots of free coaching information and training at
