Portsmouth psychologist John Caruso is one of many highly sought-after job titles in the United Kingdom, with the average salary for one of them at £80,000.
The position, which has been on the UK’s bestseller list since 2012, pays well, but Caruson says it’s not the best place to start his career.
“It’s a big pay packet, and a lot of the people that are doing it have a big family, and are in a big place.
“I’m very proud to be doing this job, but it’s probably not the right place for me.” “
Carusol says his salary is more than enough to support his family, but he wants to take a step back and do something more worthwhile. “

“The job pays the bills.
I want to take some time off and have a look at my life, but I’m happy here.”
I’ve been working here for 18 months now, and I’ve done it on a contract, so I know what the workload is like, but also I’m grateful for the money.
“The salary is decent and I don’t think I need to go into a whole other field to make a living.”
The position pays the rent and utilities, Carusone says, and the majority of his work is psychological, which includes psychotherapy, education and employment.
The salary is based on the average hourly wage of psychologists in the UK, which is around £8.80.
“My salary is around the average UK salary, so that’s a good amount for a psychologist,” he said.
Caruson’s average salary has more than doubled since 2012 to £80 000, with some of the highest-paid psychologists making over £100 000. “

“As a psychologist, it’s a very important job.
It’s an important profession, and it’s one that I’m really proud of,” he explained.”
There are many, many more people that would be happy to work here, and that’s not to say I wouldn’t do the same thing, but in my opinion I’m doing a lot more work here.”
Psychologists are a highly skilled profession in the U.K. with an average salary of around £80k per annum.
The average salary is just shy of the £80K benchmark that some have been aiming for, with other top earners earning more than £100k per year.
Carusone is currently working in a psychology training facility in London.
He says he’d like to do more work as a therapist, but is happy at his current salary.
