Monday sees me taking the next step to being a fully qualified Counsellor. I have my first client. I am prepared and as ready as I ever will be , doesn’t stop me feeling nervous. I’m not used to leaving my youngest with anyone which is another source of anxiety. I rarely left my teens when they were little and its hard to let go . But its only one morning a week and I have no intention of getting a job which entails him going to childcare . It works for most but wouldn’t for me.
Had a good chat with one of the guys on my course who is in a similar position – that it setting up his own practice placement instead of joining an agency- something I hadn’t even thought of when I was qualified never mind starting out but needs must- Its good to know he’s as nervous as I am.
