I think I have a placement as a student counsellor! Helping those associated with homelessness

OK I cannot guarantee it, but I have the go ahead to set myself up as a new counsellor helping those associated with homelessness.

As a student, requiring my first placement, I could have gone down the usual route of looking for a placement somewhere that already offers placements, but no, not me… I have never been one to follow the crowd, I have always enjoyed setting new things up, organising and offering the best service I can. And now, I have the opportunity to do what I really want, and that is to help people who need it.

I have started my third year of my counselling courses am now studying level 4, and something has happened this year. I have always appeared confident to others, always been able to work well in the group settings, study hard, and do great role plays, but this year, I FEEL all those things instead of just doing them and feeling like I cannot inside. I can put this down to my college work, my fantastic fellow students, my group analysis in which I am a patient (very tough but very therapeutic) and my determined self-help efforts of writing, keeping journals, and self-analysis. There’s also my fabulous cat, Titus, Molly my hamster and all my wonderful fish, plants and flowers, that have kept me going with fun and creation, Chris who has supported me, and my mum and dad (who invite me to dinnner regularly). I am a capable individual in many respects (not money!) and now seems to be my time to accept it.

I will say no more because I cannot. Confidentiality. But here’s hoping my dreams will come true and that the placement set up will work out well. I knew I would volunteer and help others one day 🙂 x
