    So ever since I left school I've always thought about going into counselling or psychology. I considered studying it at uni but decided against it in the end, as there didn't seem to be many jobs in the sector and I was relatively interested in computing anyway - plus there are A LOT more jobs in computing so I thought that this would be the best way to go.

    Despite this, after a year of graduating and after a year of working in computing, I feel like I've made the wrong choice. I've now realised even more so than before that my passion is to help people, and I've seriously been considering going into counselling and hoping to eventually become a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (a weird swap right?) The job climate however, still hasn't changed as far as I'm aware.

    I wanted to hear it from people that have studied counselling, psychology and/or psychotherapy - did you manage to get into the industry after your studies and how easy is it to find trainee or assistant roles to get you up the ladder?
