Why Did You Decide to Study Psychology and Become a Counsellor?

I want to use my degree to help people throughout my life. I want to become a counsellor because I want to assist people with daily life challenges. I am a good listener and want to find solutions to the problems of people.

Psychology will allow me to learn about different psychotherapeutic and counselling interventions as well as behavioural modification and problem-solving techniques.

It was very upsetting and negative that we sold our apartment at less price.
