Can I learn Counselling Psychology for self-improvement?

People who study counselling psychology and become Counselling Psychologists often do so because of an interest in human behaviour and thinking; but also because they feel they can help people sort out their issues and live a happier life.

What may be less known and sometimes overlooked is that counselling psychology can also be used to help yourself as well, as ultimately, counselling psychology is about finding balance, wellness and happiness.

Most of us have some issue we are dealing with, no matter how well our lives are going. We may be dealing with some friction at work between colleagues and bosses, work related stress, dealing with loneliness, grieving, or suffering from a broken heart after loss of a relationship. We may also have some behavioural issues that have pestered us for years. It could be obsessiveness, overspending, alcoholism, or other self-destructive patterns.

For example, you may want to figure out why you are good at starting things, but have a hard time finishing things you start. Or maybe you have performance issues at work and would like to improve but don’t know how. These are common issues with people, and something that can cause long term annoyances and problems. Being introspective and understanding you have an issue is a start, but if you want to improve you will need to find a way to systematically look into the cause of the issue and find the best way to resolve it.

In counselling psychology, you’ll learn to explore and conducts research into different mindsets and behaviour of yourself and of other people. From this exploration and research, you’ll be able to develop assessment tools and find different ways to approach a wide variety of mental, behavioural, and performance issues.

Counselling psychology isn’t just meant to help other people. You can use the things you learn from counselling psychology to also look at your own life and situation to figure out how you can improve in different areas of your personal and professional life; and ultimately you can use counselling psychology to chart a path towards a healthier, happier life.
