    Biology would be ideal, and Philosophy offers a useful and interesting counterpoint - psychology originally grew out of the philosophy of mind, and then later in the 20th century grew to incorporate more biological methods and approaches. The combination would give a good basis for any approach to the study of the brain and mind.

    Sociology is more tenuously connected - psychology and sociology are fundamentally different fields, and while there is some relation in both studying humans, the methods and object of study differ. Beyond those mentioned however, Maths is usually valued and useful for prospective Social Scientists, including Psychologists, as statistics is a core part of analysing Psychological data, and the calculus covered forms the basis of formal mathematical statistics (although this is arguably beyond the scope required for Psychology, having a strong background in maths is never bad if you're having to use it).

    I do psychology, philosophy, biology and maths. I find that they are working well for me together. By doing both bio and psy I've widened the amount of courses that are open to me at uni.

    If you wanted a very psychology based career then I would suggest maybe considering chemistry too. Universities tend to like bio and chem together.

    Sorry if this wasn't very helpful.
