VACorps counselling and psychology internships will expose you to the complexities of South Africa’s mental health care system. Our internship placements are culturally appropriate and will give you unique access to counselling and social support services in South Africa. This is one of our most popular and competitive internship fields so we can recommend applying at least 3 months in advance!
Our Counselling & Psychology internship sites have included:
- Shelters for abused women and children
- Addiction centres
- Outpatient clinics
- Inpatient clinics (clinical psychology students*)

Experience and exposure to the DSM V are helpful and these internships are reserved for mature students of all ages with a keen interest in becoming professional counsellors, clinical psychologists, addiction counsellors, early childhood development, and for pre-med students interested in psychiatry.
