There are lots of therapist fields, art therapist, exercise therapist, family therapist, marriage therapist and the list goes on! My advice would be to Google al the fields, read up about them all and decide which one interests you the most, then you can plan how you get into the sector.

This is what I did, I want to be a therapist for those suffering from mental illnesses. This goal started from when I studied psychology at A Level. Further advice would be that you also take an A level in psychology. ALL therapists have a degree in psychology, specifically a degree in the field they want to study (mine is going to be clinical psychology). The first step would be to secure an A Level in psychology, from there you would take a psychology degree at uni, specialising in the subject/field you want to go into .

Hope this helps and good luck

You're welcome and yes I think it's too late as my friends at college have had to submit theirs 2 weeks ago as the deadline for acceptance. I haven't submitted my applicaton to uni yet as I'm taking a gap year to work in my psychiatric hospital for work experience. However, it might not be too late for some universities but I think the majority of them won't be taking applications anymore, try contacting UCAS to ask, sorry I can't be more helpful, but if you can't apply for this year don't worry, take a gap year get some volunteering things to spice up your uni application they love that type of stuff
