Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 31 People

    Sharing..

    I hope to do counselling. To me it's capitalizing on a few strengths which I currently have, and it's also a beautiful process of (trying to) help others while growing in the process. I'm aware that I shouldn't be doing this out of a selfish agenda (eg make myself feel good). Do...

    It Only Seems Fair...

    I've been in counselling/psychotherapy for such a long time now, I feel like half of the time I know more about some theories than them themselves!  But no, I do really wish I could help people through their problems -- act as guiding hand for them in their time of need...
