It’s good to talk. It’s also good to listen and a counsellor provides that safe space for someone to talk to them about their issues and guides them through their thoughts and feelings to help them overcome their challenges.
The number of counsellors and therapists has grown considerably in recent years with demand usually outstripping supply, particularly within the NHS. This has created an opportunity for those with experience to set up their own private practices. It’s undoubtedly a demanding role, but if you are a good listener and enjoy helping people, counselling can offer a fulfilling and rewarding career.
