Do you have what it takes to be a Counselling Psychologist?

Counselling psychologists work with people to help them better deal with difficulties in life and to achieve wellness and positive emotional and psychological development. It requires a certain type of person with a set of qualities that are innate, and may require further training.

Understanding yourself
Understanding yourself is an important quality. It takes time and a great deal of self-reflection. Because you have put so much time and thought into your own thoughts and actions, you may have an interest in human behaviour, and why people think and act the way they do.

Listening to people
You’re a good listener, and you care about what people tell you and their state of mind and emotions. You feel sympathetic and are empathetic to their stories and plight.

You may find that people come to you with their problems and concerns. When someone tells you their secret or reveals their emotions and vulnerabilities, you don’t judge them for it. You take them as they are, as a friend, a human being, and you try to hear them and understand them.

Willing to help
You are inclined to try to help people solve or overcome their issues. This could be any issue ranging from their problems at work, family disagreements, unfair treatment by friends and colleagues. It could also be very personal, such as someone dealing with loneliness, rejection, or a broken heart. Regardless of the issue, you have a tendency to want to find ways to help them overcome it.

It’s likely you are the type of person who already knows this is your trajectory and may be unsure about what it means for you, or if you should take the next step, or what it’s even really about.
