I’m doing a Diploma in Youth Counselling and very interesting it is, too. I’m not planning to be a counsellor but I’m often approached by teenagers in an unofficial counselling situation and I wanted to have some different insights and guidance as to ways to help – and how not to hinder.
It’s an interesting process and way of thinking. Occasionally, I’ve found it frustrating, for a number of reasons which I might blog about when I’ve finished, but I’ve also valued looking at things from new viewpoints and applying different theories to different situations.
And, hooray, I have passed the certificate part so I now have a Certificate in Counselling.
With a piece of paper to prove it.
