Counselling Psychology is a specific field of psychology that focuses on a wide variety of mental health issues. Although counselling psychologists mainly deal with clients suffering from depressionanxiety, family or social problems, or vocational problems, counselling psychologists are also trained to treat mental problems that would be considered more severe such as schizophrenia. Counselling psychologists differ from other branches in psychology because of their approach to mental illness. They focus on wellness and strengths of individuals rather than mental deficiencies. Counselling psychology was developed using many of the techniques and theories of other psychologists. Psychometrics, or psychological testing, was also an important factor in the history of counselling psychology.

A theory of psychotherapy acts as a roadmap for psychologists: It guides them through the process of understanding clients and their problems and developing solutions. Behaviour therapy. This approach focuses on learning the role in developing both normal and abnormal behaviours. Cognitive therapy emphasizes what people think rather than what they do. Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person’s present behaviour.

Counselling psychologists work with individual clients of all ages, such as children who have behavioural problems; late adolescents with educational and career concerns or substance abuse problems; adults facing marital or family difficulties, career changes, or overcoming disabilities; and older adults facing retirement. They work with groups to assist them in finding solutions to many of these problems, as well as to improve the personal and interpersonal functioning of group members. Counselling psychologists also consult with organizations (e.g., businesses) and work groups to help provide a work environment in which people can succeed, and to enhance the ability of organizations to increase productivity and effectiveness.

PROJECTION: growth by next 5-10 years:

The Psychologists, Social Workers and Marriage Counsellors industry has grown strongly over the past five years. Mental health services are needed regardless of economic conditions, which insulate the industry from economic fluctuations. In the coming years, as people continue to return to work and regain a steady income, private health insurance will become more affordable, prompting consumers to seek mental health services when needed.

Barriers to entry in this industry are low. This is due to the large number of small establishments and the low capital costs required to set up a business. Indeed, firms with less than four employees make up about 85.0% of the market. Many organisations provides funding’s ,some of them are, North Shore Center, LLC, SAMHSA ,National Institute of Mental Health and Texas Medical Association .The most significant barrier to entry is education, and this barrier is increasing as acceptance into graduate programs becomes more competitive. Most operators have at least a master's degree, though some practice with only a bachelor's degree. Mental health practitioners must also be accredited and licensed. Another increasing barrier is the level of administrative work and regulatory knowledge that is required by the insurance rules as well as new rules mandated by the Affordable Care Ac
