Dealing with human emotions, helping individuals heal from trauma and mental illness and navigating through situations of conflict – your passion lies in the study of psychology.
Understanding how humans think and act is absolutely fundamental, not just for how you perceive those around you, but also for how you perceive yourself.
Once you have mastered the intricacies of the human mind, you can critically engage with your own emotions and reactive reflexes.
