Did you know that counselors complete at least three thousand hours of direct and indirect experience before they’re fully licensed? It’s a complicated journey, but I’ve always been fascinated by why and how people do the things they do, so it’s totally worth it.
Pretty much everywhere I go someone wants to talk about my work. Once they find out I’m a counselor they end up telling me all about their lives and their personal struggles. Some may find this difficult to deal with, but it’s part of the job; and I LOVE IT!!
I also get approached by those who are interested in beginning a career in the helping professions themselves. The same questions come up over and over, so today, I’m going to answer all of those questions once and for all.
If you are looking at a career in the counseling industry, thinking about seeing a therapist and need to know what to look for, or just want to make sure I know what I’m talking about, this episode is for you!
