So how did I end up being passionate about Counselling?
Well, I was destined to be a medical doctor according to my father, bless him! So I gave that a try for two years, but I wasn’t loving it or being successful in it at all. Don’t get me wrong, I did learn lots and am thankful for those two years, they weren’t wasted at all!
When I was making my decision to change career choice, I stumbled upon a Culture and Personality course, which led me to think that this might be the way. So I started my counselling career not very enthused about it, but not closing my mind to the possibility either.
My tutors were so passionate about psychology and counselling, that it was infectious and got me hooked on the topic, particularly psychodynamic counselling. So I carried on studying and learning and becoming more and more interested in philosophy, psychopathology, human development, psychoanalysis, and so on. #
This got amplified and proven worthwhile when I had my first counselling client in Guatemala, back in 2003. So I can say that from then onward, Counselling has been my passion and have dedicated my time to training and practising, helping my clients find their way back and find their truth and place in life.
It is so rewarding and a blessing to be allowed into people’s worlds in such a way! It really is!
So this is my passion: Counselling. This is what I do. I wouldn’t change it for anything.
Find your passion and do it! Whatever it takes, whatever form it takes…Do what you’re passionate about!
