What It Takes to Become a Counselor


We’re all looking for ways we can influence change and help others in life. Knowing that you have helped even one single person realize their dreams and achieve more in life is the best feeling in the world. Perhaps this is the reason why many are now assuming the role of community leaders and counselors. In fact, a career in counseling may be just what you need if you truly enjoy helping others.

You can choose to be a counselor at school or at work. You need to develop several qualities, but there are online counseling degrees from top names such as Wake Forest University that you can take while maintaining a fulltime job. These courses are relatively short and will help you pick up the skills you need to be an effective community leader and counselor.
