I have received my education in a back to back format, school then bachelor's and immediately after that, master's in clinical psychology. Currently I'm working as a school counselor. It sounds lame to say this but my mother sort of has this obsession with the 'Dr.' that comes before your name after completing Ph.D. and for a while I was on board with that but then the pandemic happened and it gave me time to think and realize that I was not ready for a Ph.D. at all. I haven't the slightest idea what I want to research on - I thought since I was currently working with kids maybe something related to them but whenever I think about it I feel little to no interest. I've always wanted to go 'study abroad'. The education system in my country has always disappointed me and I've never felt fulfilled by it. But directly going for a Ph.D. in a foreign country seems very daunting and I know that I'm not at all prepared for it. So I figured maybe I could do a master's in another field of psychology, say maybe forensic or criminal or any other area. But I'm not sure if its possible. I am not even sure which country I should focus on although the stats show that it's the U.S. that I should apply to but I want to keep my options open. So please help.
First: good for you for stepping back and thinking about what you really want to do.
To answer your actual question, you can apply anywhere for any program that seems interesting. Whether you're admitted depends on many factors. Some programs might find your background a reason for acceptance, some the opposite. Whether you need financial assistance will probably matter.
I would advise you to cast a broad net. Look at (even apply to) many programs in many places. Then explore the ones that accept you. Please yourself first, hope that your choice pleases your mother.
Good luck. Come back here from time to time to tell us what you are doing.
