Career in counselling/psychotherapy?

  • #1
    Registered Users Posts: 39 ✭✭✭ Maat

    Good Morning all!

    I am a professional who is currently looking for a career change. I have always wanted to become a physician but I find myself being forced to reconsider this due to my own health and financial constraints. I have often thought I might like to consider a career as a counselor or therapist and I find myself coming back to this again.

    I want a career in which I feel I can truly make a difference and I believe that I am a good listener with a history of dealing with my own difficult issues. I feel this would be of benefit to me in this career.

    My concern would be finding full-time work that could sustain me in life. Could anyone with experience in this area give me some advice on this? Is it difficult to find full-time work?

    Any insights or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!
