What job, besides psychology, provides people with mental reassurance and possibly physical assistance?

+2 votes

 

 I want a particular job, but I don't know the name. In fact, I'm not entirely sure it even exists. I want to help suit people's emotional needs; maybe even physical needs. I don't want to be a psychologist, however. I want to put smiles on people's faces, but I don't know what career this is. Help?

A psychiatrist delves into issues of the mind and psychology is the study of the mind. There is a difference in a job (earning wages) and a career (lifetime commitment). A caregiver or personal assistant provide emotional and physical support as examples of positions in the common job market but sometimes become more demanding than expected. Career or professionally speaking, a therapist (psychotherapist, hypnotherapist) or social worker are lifetime professions and not entered into lightly. There are numerous positions for short or long terms but to find that position for yourself should be the priority.
