I had an interest in pursuing psychology ever since I was helped by a counsellor. This interest had me question many things about people’s behaviours and their life. This led to me developing a want to help others and to inform them about the importance on one’s mental state and health. This led me to pursue a career path that involves helping others with their mental health.
Through listening and understanding the different perspectives of people, we would be able to learn more about ourselves and improve on our existing abilities. Which is why I believe that everyone would benefit from counselling regardless of how small or big an issue a person has in their life.
As a counsellor, I believe that my purpose is to assist individuals in understanding themselves and get them to understand how their actions and thoughts would not only affect themselves but others around them. My goal is to ensure that clients can explore their thoughts and emotions by providing them a safe and calming space, making them feel understood through active listening, assisting them in becoming aware of helpful and unhelpful behaviour/thoughts, and discussing on how to improve themselves.
