If you are a good listener, interested in psychology and like helping others a career in counselling might be the perfect choice for you. You could work in the NHS, schools, youth charities or you could be self-employed and have a more flexible work pattern. As the therapeutic value of counselling is increasingly recognized as an effective way to help people with mental health (and everyday life issues) it could be a perfect time to consider your career as a counsellor.
People often move into counselling as a second or third career as life experience is highly valued for a therapist. With the right combination of skills and education, you could start a new job in a highly rewarding career.
