  • Conflict resolution
  • Team Building
  • Individual Employee Counseling & Grievance handling

Interns will be directly supervised by the Head Counselor, gaining exposure to live projects, along with introduction to assessment reports, interpretations and self appraisals. Exposure to Client Live sessions will be arranged based on availability. Interns may gain insight into these practices. For example, internship assignments may be related to personal assessments and case study based learnings.

Note that this remote internship can include live sessions. Although remote internships have an element of flexibility (in that you will have some activities you’re able to complete in your own time) you’ll also need to ensure that your own time-zone can accommodate any live sessions, taking place in Indian business hours. If your time-zone and availability will be incompatible, you’re welcome to reach out to us to discuss alternative host-countries for your remote internship needs.

Relevant supervisors hold the following degrees:

  1. MA in Clinical Psychology, PGDM in Career Development, Group Psychological Tests, Contemporary Psychotherapies, Psychopathology, Personality Psychology, Micro Counseling & Counseling techniques.
  2. PhD in Human Development and Family Studies, M.A. in Human Development and Family Counseling, Diploma in Counseling, Diploma in Criminal Psychology and MBA.

If you have academic requirements which stipulate the type of qualification your internship supervisor must have, please let us know in advance.

In all cases, interns should expect that the initial phase of their remote internship will focus on gaining some introductory knowledge. You may start by gaining an understanding or overview of what you can build upon, develop, learn, and contribute. Ensure that you ask questions and provide feedback during the introductory period, so that your supervisor understands how you’re progressing. This will help them to better understand important details, such as how quickly you learn, what you find challenging, what you find interesting, etc.

Understand and expect that individual internship experiences vary. Therefore, if you’re at a more introductory level, you should reasonably expect a more introductory internship. Likewise, if you’re interning for a shorter duration, you will have a different experience from someone who is interning for a longer duration. Placement preferences are considered but always subject to availability.

I really appreciate the guidance received by my Program Manager when applying for the internship. She called me and answered all my questions and was so patient. She was the reason I felt so keen to apply and do the internship. My supervisor was also very nice and always checked up on me and answered all of my queries. The internship gave me confidence for my future practice. It was lovely learning more about Indian culture and how it differs from Western cultures.
