What to know about counselling jobs

There are so many different counselling jobs, but which are the best? You might also be wondering, ‘is counselling even a good career?’ Let us talk you through all the reasons to become a counsellor. If you’ve just qualified, and are looking for your first proper job, there are lots of entry-level counselling jobs available with no experience required. You’ll likely be supervised by a more experienced counsellor, until you can show that you’ve got the hang of things. A great place to start is a student counselling job. This work involves coaching students through academic difficulties, problems at home, and generally dealing with their emotions maturely. This is a great gig for a first-timer because it can be taken on as a part-time job. Counselling jobs can be very emotionally challenging, so it’s a good idea to ease your way in and build up your abilities. When you’re ready, you can then move up to a full-time counselling job.

If you still need to adapt to the working world before you fully embrace your job in counselling, why not try a work-from-home job? Counselling has become a remote industry thanks to things like video calling and online services. You can help people work through their problems from the safety and comfort of your home – perfect if you’re more on the introverted side. Or, take on a weekend counselling job to help people who are stuck for time from Monday to Friday. That way, you can build up your experience at a pace that suits you, while still making some cash to pay the bills.

We haven’t talked about the other type of counselling job out there: summer camp counsellors! If you’re more into adventures and having a bit of fun, then this one is for you. Spend the summer months teaching and minding kids and teenagers, enjoying the outdoors and (hopefully) the good weather. There are different types of camps you can work at too, so whether you’re a fan of sports, arts, or the outdoors, you’ll find one for you. You can work at a camp in the UK, or even travel abroad for your summer job. It’s up to you to choose your adventure. Check out the different types of careers in counselling to the one that suits what you’re after. Not sure if counselling jobs are really for you? Check out alternatives like advice jobs or help desk jobs to build up your experience and knowledge.
