Hello and WELCOME to PsychAssist. This weeks guest article is from Dr Grace Mansah-Owusu who is a Chartered Psychologist. This is an area that we are personally interested in as this sector appears to have a bright and broad future. Many top companies are starting to realise the importance of employee wellbeing and are actively exploring how to get the best out of their employees. This could signal a rise in occupational psychologists as they hold the required skills to deliver results. This is why we thought it would be great for Grace to explain what Occupational Psychology is and how you can pursue this career path.
