Can a student get a mental health counseling job via Skype right now with a Bsc degree in Psychology? No work experience, no internships. Currently doing a MSC clinical psychology at Bath but the student is not living in Bath but Manchester.

Is it possible to get a job as mental health counseling with a Bsc degree without license or doctorate in psychology?

Sorry It really isn't. Psychology is very competitive, you need some clinical experience before actually getting a role. Try some voluntary work such as working for the Samaritans over the phone or Mind, this can be valuable experience for counselling. However if you want to go the clinical route clinical training is VITAL.

All the best.

Without clinical training you can’t start a job in clinical psychology job. With counselling you will need some counselling experience. Experience in a 'helping' profession is advantage like nursing, social work, mental health or teaching. But like I said you can start off volunteering if you don’t have any experience and are looking to start somewhere.

You don’t need a license or PhD to do counselling but you do need to be registered with one of the relevant bodies example BACP. At time you also need a counselling qualification although some roles don’t ask for this.

Look up jobs in counselling and you will be able to see the requirements although they will differ in terms of what they require.

All the best
