Chart a rewarding career as a Counsellor

As a counsellor, you provide a beacon of light to those in distress. Actively listening to your clients, building a solid foundation of trust and providing a safe space for discussion – these are important elements that will encourage your clients to open up about their feelings, whether it’s a relationship problem, a family issue or depression. 

By empowering your clients with the knowledge, skills or strategies, you help them explore their options, discover their strengths, overcome their obstacles and eventually make their own decisions to introduce positive changes into their lives.
