helene912's Mental Therapist Career
This is my very first attempt to mod at all. So sorry for all mistakes I probably might have made.
Made with help from Neia's Create-a-Career-tool - Multiple Tracks, Rabbit Hole, Patch UPDATE: 08/16/2018 - PC 184.108.40.2060, German Translation included!!!!!!
Before: I do have all packs and extansions and Rock'n roll; I think several of them might be useful for getting promoted; in fact it seems you do not real need more than Base Game (BG). I played it with only BG, and it worked out quite well.
The Career you DL is
The Mental Therapist Career
This is a Rabbit Hole Career (your Sim disappears when going to work and Comes back when finished, without carrots in mouth, nor dirt on clothes, but they call it a Rabbit Hole) I made by the help of Neia's Create-a-Career-Tool , similar to a therapist's Career, but as well as to psychologist, or mental Coach; it is a mixture of all of it, fitting to the dependings of Sims, not human beings. And, maybe, sometimes also built with a little twinkling eye. It has 6 main levels, after which you have the choice to join one of three further careers.
So let's go into detail, if you like: As
The Theoretical Therapist
"For the beginning, you study people before you treat real people. It is neccessary to learn how people can feel, how the brain works - roughly -, and how to teach patients without annoying or boring them. You read al lot, and you get to know all about the famous 'Mens sano in corpore sane.' You learn about speech, about your Body and the needs it has. You may make some hypotheses on human behaviour, but you are not allowed yet to prove them. So, be aware of headaches and long nights."
You take care for and cure people by regarding their state of mind, their wellness and their physical fitness all together.
Within 6 Levels, your Sim is led from a complete layman to a knowing student of all simlish behaviour, thoughts, intentions and needs. There's a lot to learn and not too much earning, and you need more than just one ability to get promoted.
The single steps as Theoretical Therapist are:
(1) Basic Empath: You are a beginner studying the theory.
"How to be a Basic Empath: not too easy it seems. If you are no Vampire, you have to learn hard how to open a Sim's Heart and really understand what he or she means. You learn techniques of asking and interviewing, and you learn how to feel with somebody without regards or breaking down yourself."
Stay confident! Even if it means from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Gain in Charisma and Writing to get promoted. Learn about Sims, about manipulation, and earn 22 Simoleons per hour. Much work, not much payment, but keep staying confident: This is the challenge before you may become a
"How can I train a brain? Tricky Thing, because a brain has no body on ist own, except for the Sim's body, of course. But you help Sims to use their brains as if it had muscles like a top star bodybuilder. So at first sight: Train your own brain, that might help."
Here you need to focus! Still working from Monday to Friday, even harder from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.! Logic and Writing must be formed out to train a Sim's memory, and you earn 25 Bucks per hour until you are Ready to become a
(3) Didactic Beginner: About Teaching and Learning
"Here it comes to all about Teaching and Learning. You learn how to learn, afterwards how to teach, followed by forgetting about all you learned to get some exercise with other Didactic Beginners who in the same time give you friendly, but determined feedback. In the end you turn back to your studies and write a book about new methods that do not work."
Energize yourself to manage even more work from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. You need to expand Charisma, Logic and Parenting (yes, all of them!) for to be able to teach the right way. All for only 26 Simoleons per hour. You'll need coffee and a good bed! After all that you will be promoted to become a
(4) Freudian Researcher: About psychology and why it does not always work
"Psychology and why it sometimes might make you feel quite ashamed, is one of the greatest Secrets of Science. Sims feel ashamed relatively fast, but Einstein had his theory concerning this. And Sigmund, who started off with all that stuff, might have been the one to feel ashamed most of all - but did he? You will know soon when learning all about bad feelings and how to struggle them down."
Being embarrassed or ashamed should be reasonable while studying Freud. (Good luck with that!) The gain is working from Monday till Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for now 35 Simoleons per hour, which you might regard as a compensation. Working hard on Charisma and Logic, you will, in case of success, develop to a
(5) Linguistic Candidate:
"Where does speech come from? And where does it go to in case of speechlessness? Can you hold a talk with empty hands? Is there a sense in all those confusing empty words? What are words anyway? Just about 800 books to read, and you can answer all these questions. Almost."
So you focus again, this time on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. You'll need all time to get Level 6 on Charisma, logic and writing! You Analyse speech and talking Sims, you learn phonetics to articulate most properly. So don't rest too much - you should not for 50 Bucks per hour! Makes it a little bit easier to believe in reaching the aim of your Basic Studies, finally becoming a
(6) Theoretical Therapist:
"Prepare yourself for all essentials: You are not theoretically a Therapist, but you are a Theoretical Therapist now. Which seems to be nearly the same, but never mind. You earn good Money now and do not work too much - but do you want to stay here all life?"
Focusing is what you need here most. From Monday till Thursday between 9 a.m. and 15 p.m., you take your Charisma, Logic and Writing up to Level 7, and all this you do to finally learn about the Simlish Psychology, earning 60 Simoleons per hour. You are a psychologist from now on and forever - you cannot get rid of what you have learned about this intensly and with such an amount of hard work.
But most of all Theoretical Therapists want to go on, to learn more: they specialize in further careers. And they do have very interesting choices between the three branches Health Saviour, Mental Coach, and Master of Mental Health.
a) The Health Saviour: Health as the Basis of all
"As a Health Savior, you need to learn all about medicines and pills and suppositories. For the first time being. Being followed by a thorough training to a Herbalist. (Nature knows many answers.) And after your head burst, you will be driven through the hardest physical education training program ever. (We really mean!) And after all, if you chose this career branch, you will be a profound genuine mental and physical health therapist. You will earn more money than before and be a true role model for your patients.
The Health Saviour does not only train the client's body, but also discusses all contextes between body and soul. They know why you bow or why you frown, and they teach you reading your own body. Which is very surprising sometimes!" So at first, you will be a
(7) Pharmaceutical Slave:
"Pills 'n drugs 'n diarrhea - your Job is getting to know pills, how they are made, how they work, what damages they cause and how to get enormously rich by ill Sims and keeping them sick. Followed by an ethics Course where you discover moral and really mad Sims."
Focus still in need, you learn about pills and drugs and nerves and muscles from Monday till Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Improve your Logic, you will need it - and get your Fitness an update to at least level 5. Before teaching Sims to have a sane Body, you will have to do some self-exercise, earning 150 per hour. Not too bad, but not enough for you? Okay, become a
(8) Herbal Witch:
"So it's rather Pills 'n drugs 'n herbs & Co. making Sims feel better, that's why you leqarn how to brew and use herbals. Which is fun most of the time, especially when trying out the herbals yourself. You should never give anything to a Sim you do not know on your own!"
You long for Inspiration from Monday till Friday, get to work at 7 a.m. (for most herbals are in best condition that time) to 3 a.m, (which is quite enough on Career Level 8). Logic, Herbalism and Gardening shall be driven to higher Levels, for you brew and cook a lot in this level. But you do it for 180 Simoleons per hour, so what? If you continue this way, you might soon develop into a
(9) Physical Trainer:
"Sweat and aching muscles - after such a Long time of theory and stuff, you might have forgotten how to move your body! Get yourself into shape, run around the clock, erm, block, drive your Body where your brain already is! And afterwards just do the same on your patients."
Remember staying confident? It is much easier here on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (there are games on Saturday, you know) from 13 p.m. to 18 p.m. Most physical training is done in the afternoon. But to reach the last step of this Career, you'll have to perfect three of your skills: Fitness, Herbalism, and, of Course, Charisma. You won't become anything without Charisma! But with it, you'll earn 350 bucks per hour - and this is not the end!
(10) Mental Health Therapist:
"You look like the flourishing life. You know all about chemistry and biology, you are empathic, but demanding. Your Clients love you and also to work on their own mind through their bodies. Sounds weird, but works out like a Workout. Early a potion and training when rise makes the Sim healthy, and you wealty and wise."
This the end of this Career, and you automatically feel energized. You work on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and take rests from this really exciting and exhausting job all time around. 1200 Simoleons per hour are your fees, and you really deserve that. A Career you can plan a life with!
b) The Mental Coach: Simply knowing about language, speech and the fine art of singing and vocal modulation
"You use language like a sorcerer: you look through the outward appearance of people, as if you were looking through the air, discovering all their true intentions, their deepest desires and their darkest dreams. You know how to enchant with words, how to be entranced by the power of the voice. Like the mentalist, you instantly notice when somebody's lying to you, and you could drive people to anything - which of course you can keep! Because you use your power only for the bright side - right?"
This Career differs totally from the one above: the Mental Coach teaches you all about your voice and articulation, what it expresses and how to use in a smart way. The voice as the audible mirror of the soul, shows all your feelings fast and precisely to an attentive listener: it trembles when you are sad, it is full of energy when you are angry, it creaks when you are tired. To be master of your voice and speech, means being master of the situation! Here you start with the following step:
(7) Linguistic Assistent: Phonetics, Phonology, Gramma and Semantics
"Phonetics, Phonology, Gramma and Semantics - nothing can make you stumble with speech. You know what speech sounds like and how actually it should sound like - which is enormously and different; you never lose the sense of your sentences, no matter how long these ever might be. You make Sims feel ashamed just by even only nodding to them. Speech is not only words - and you KNOW that."
Focusing is of great importance here! From Monday till Friday, you work from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. especially on your skills, namely Logic, Charisma, and - Guitar playing. Yes! Voice training also means singing, and to stay professional, you should master at least one instrument to accompany the singing client with all power you got. And you might be inspired to do so because of the 180 Bucks per hour that you earn with it. You will gain in self ensurance. For sure. And after that, you may continue as a
(8) Therapist in the Psychological Emergency Outpatient Clinic:
"There is somebody in need - TALK to him. Your task is making Sims who are highly frustrated, depressive, exhausted, upset, or all together, stand up smiling again and leave the crowded ambulance, make them turn home and talk to their friends about their lifes and problems (and if they don't have any, than find some) (friends, not problems - this is why it is so important to have someone like you to make it all sure)."
You exercised being confident - for the Sims coming here to you! Now you practize every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. till 1 p.m. as somewhat inbetween a clinical linguist, teaching brain stroke patients and children how to speak clearly again, and an emergency psychologist, mentally catching sad Sims who need First Aid on their soul. This is very, very exhausting! At the end of the day, sometimes you think, your head explodes; you still work on Charisma, perfect your Logic, and even gain in Comedy up to level 5: Sometimes laughing is the best medicine! At least for the Clients; you do this all for your good heart and the fee of 480 Simoleons per hour. After promotion, you'll be an
(9) Articulation Acrobat (AA):
"You juggle words and weave a net with your voice. Aliterations are your armours, rap is your music, no single letter will be missed in your accurately completed articulation. You seem a bit elven, and nobody can find out why. This - makes you mighty! You can barely hide your satisfaction after all the stress and the oral motor exercises you have been going through."
Always intensly focused, you work every Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with Sims of all ages who stutter or talk too fast. You teach teachers how to save their voice, Football Players how not to get hoarse, Managers how to articulate precisely and news reporter how not to clear the throat all the time. Singing is the best Basic for it all! And therefore all this claims to improve Charisma (up to level 10), guitar playing and singing. Which leads to fees of 600 Simoleons per hour. Which is not too bad. But still you can climb one step further up your Career ladder:
(10) Doctor of Rhetoric, Mental Coach:
"If the Queen needs to hold a speech, she will count on YOU! You have written several books about speech and how to abuse it; Clients wait years for your help and pay good money for it. Well done!"
As a studied Doctor, you feel confident rather automatically. You know all about speech, rhethoric, phonetics (how a Sim does speak out a word) and phonology (how a Sim should speak out that word). People come from all over the world to ask you Questions about how to hold their talks, and so on. You work on Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., teach at University or at School, and all in all are satisfied with your fees about 930 Bucks per hour - you are worth it, and everybpody knows!
Finally you are
c) Master of Mental Health:You are tha Alpha and the Omega of Mental Health and Psychology.
"The Education to the Master of Mental Health (Dr.phil.rer.nat.psych.) was voted the most difficult but lucrative education of all time by Sim City Magazine in January 2018. There is almost nothing you can not learn there. And in the end, your neighbour with his sports car will be jealous on your yacht. You could work at universities or for an older millionaire. In short, you are very close to God. And yet, because you have been educated to empathy and wisdom, you remain humble and spend most of your reward. Not true? You just do not leave your armchair any more. Only if you want."
Go through the following career steps:
(7) Wellness Assistant:
"Balance within Body and Mind is your Credo. You convince Sims that there is much more than money - or ist lack of it, food - or the lack of it, or love - or the lack of it. There is a world inside of you, as well as on the outside, and you take your clients to a journey through it. And by the way, you like Sauna, massages and yoga yourself."
You feel fine. You do feel fine from Monday till Friday from 10 a.m. till 3 p.m. At the same time, you work on Charisma and Logic, and in parallel get your Wellness up to the highest level, because you teach Sims all about Wellness now. Buy yourself a sauna - with fees of 590 Simoleons per hour this won't be too difficult. Yes, you feel fine, and your clients will profit from that. You probably will regret to be promoted to a
(8) Heart Plumber:
"Grab a couch, park your patient's hips on the seat and let him talk. All you do is listening and make some notes and smart comments. Yes, the answers already are within the Sim - just let them show up. Carefully with empathy!"
You confidently work on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., listening to the complicated problems Sims can have. Sometimes you give them pills for their hearts, sometimes you sing a song with them; you cook together with them, you eat together with them, improving your skills Baking, Gourmet Cooking, Charisma and Logic at the same time. "Savoir vivre" is what you try to teach them for 1100 Simoleons per hour. And they do pay it, because you are brilliant! Still, another challenge is waiting for you: become
(9) Doctor of Neurology and Psychiatry:
"Finally, learn the high art of nerve cell study and the analysis of human abysses. Now you can really draw all conclusions from body and mind on a microbiotical level. Your Clients are deeply impressed by all you say and do; which should remind you of your big responsability again."
You have a doctorate now, and you start off confidently every Monday and Saturday from 11 a.m. till 2 p.m. You now teach young doctors and younger therapists all about nerve cells and psychiatric illnesses. People might think that you are lazy, but we know the cost of reaching this level. Still working to perfection on your Handiness, Gourmet Cooking, Charisma, and Parenting, you are dependant on all this free time. Concerning your fees, you earn 1500 Simoleons per hour, which is neccessary because you cannot work that much any more. And finally, if you got all over this, you might finish up your Career as a
(10)Master of Mental Health: Dr.phil.rer.nat.psych. Master of Mental Health:
"This is it. Your name and titles now are longer than the summary on a deodorant. Your fees look like other ones' social Security number. You yourself look decadently rich, happy and unrepentant. Maybe also unscrupulously dangerous - take care! The line between charity and corruption is incredibly narrow â¦ What? Erm - I just wanted to congratulate!"
Money and freetime as much as you have ever dreamed of, you will be very satisfied with going to work. Feeling fine on Monday, Wednesday , and Friday from 11 a.m. to noon, you hold talks in Universities, sometimes have a very Special Client ("special" here means "VIP"), and you earn 5400 Simoleons per hour for it. This is why you feel quite fine.
I hope it all works out well, so you shall have fun. Good luck!
