Could you work as a counsellor?

Courses in Counselling

Working as a professional counsellor is becoming more and more popular. With us all leading more stressful lives more people are now turning to private counsellors for help. There are now plenty of telephone helplines that use counsellors and people trainined to listen. 

Who Employs Counsellors?

As well as private counsellors or Life Coaches there are many volunatry services whom now use counselling for such things as bereavement counselling, relationship counselling such as Relate. There are doctors whom are now happy to refer their patients to counsellors as they too see the benefits in their health and wellbeing. 

Private Counsellors

If you are considering a career as a private counsellor then training and experience will be necessary. There is a huge waiting list for free or low cost counselling as more and more people are becoming aware of the many benefits, so this is a good way to gain experience and combine voluntary work with private counselling work. 

What Type of Counselling?

There are many types of counselling as discussed above such as life coaches, drug counsellors, bereavement counsellors and holistic counsellors. One thing they all have in common is the knowledge of how to actively listen to your clients and step by step procedures to follow. 

NLP (neuro linguistic programming) This is an excellent first step to take if considerng this as a career as a good NLP course will cover all your basic steps.

Holistic Counselling -Is ideal for people whom already work as an alternative therapist and will enable you to learn which treatment would be more suitable for your client.
