Internship program

One of the biggest challenges that young professionals in the field of psychology face is gaining access to developing practical skills and earning internship hours. In response to the increasing demand, “Plovdiv Therapy” Ltd. offers an internship program to all those wishing to obtain practical skills in counseling clients in the field of mental health.

The program includes theoretical and practical exercises in a ratio of 1:6, with 84% of the curriculum devoted to practice. Individual meetings with a mentor give the trainees the opportunity to focus on what is important to them, to set their own goals and to get help in planning their professional development. Practical exercises include observing a live or recorded counseling session, role-playing, direct client interaction during processing counseling requests, and supervised testing. The intern will be given written assignments for the entire training period and needs to plan additional time for independent work – between 2 and 5 hours per week. The program ends with a test on the material covered and a 100-hour internship completion certificate.
