NOW I AM A COUNSELLOR
Retirement is great for some people but not for me. I did not like sitting on the sidelines of life so I devised a plan to put myself back in the middle of the action.
It took nearly a year to complete an on-line Diploma with the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors but here I am in my office overlooking the waters of Wallis Lake in downtown Forster,NSW.
My former career in hairdressing gave me good listening skills for my new job as a counsellor. I am contantly amazed by the heroism of everday Aussies and I am convinced there is a super-hero within us all. Sometimes Superman or Wonderwoman is down deep inside just needing encouragement to burst forth and save the day. My attitude towards counselling is that I help people rescue themselves from whatever situation is standing between them and their happiness.
