Should I train as a counsellor?

Individuals of any age can benefit from counselling courses and it’s important to note that counselling, when experiencing grief, abuse, anger and problems building and maintaining relationships can have a positive impact.

This makes it absolutely critical that the counselling sector ensures it is well staffed with empathetic, conscientious and skilled professionals who will diligently work to help individuals manage their emotional welfare.

If this sounds like you, training to counsel individuals, couples or groups could be the start of an incredibly inspiring career. A skilled counsellor can become a truly vital support for vulnerable people, enabling them to work through trauma and past issues, making this profession as rewarding as it is valued.

How does counselling benefit children?

One in ten children experience mental illness, and, according to the same report from Mind, the recent pandemic lockdown has led to 68% of young people experiencing lowered mental health.

Counselling can be extremely useful for children and young people, particularly those who don’t have access to a support network at home or feel they cannot talk to their parents about problems they may be facing.

How does counselling benefit adults?

According to the NHS, one in four adults experience mental illness; and the pandemic has worsened things. The mental health charity, Mind, released insight in Feb 2022 stating that “A million UK adults who had problems with their mental health for the first time during the pandemic have not spoken to anyone about it”

A career in counselling adults can see you touching upon topics surrounding the workplace, infertility, past trauma or even addiction. Older adults with very little family or friends can also benefit from counselling to help them better cope with feelings of loneliness or even worthlessness which is unfortunately common amongst older generations.
