My name is Maneet Bhatia, the author of the Psych State Of Mind blog. I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Counseling Psychology at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, where I previously completed my M.A. in Psychology. I am both a practicing psychotherapist and a researcher, having published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals. I have had the opportunity to speak at many national and international scholarly conferences in North America and Europe, including, Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Winnipeg, Halifax, Boston, and Barcelona, Spain. I have gained clinical training and experience working as a mental health professional at educational institutions, counseling centers, hospitals, outpatient community clinics, and in private practice. I am passionate about psychology, and passionate about sharing my knowledge with others. I created this website as a platform where individuals interested in learning about psychology and its application to everyday life can come.
