Counseling

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

This level of academic pursuit enables you to understand the human beings personality’s needs while at the same time enabling you to offer a perfect, procedural and professional counseling to them. This will enable them to overcome the emotional challenges that they might be going through within the shortest time possible.

These activities may be in the form of direct practice, community organising, supervision, consultation administration, advocacy, social and political action, policy development and implementation, education, and research and evaluation.
