Previous experience
 
Before training to be a counselling psychologist I was a solicitor so I know about the stresses that working in a demanding job can bring.  Being a lawyer was not the right path for me so I particularly understand those who are seeking to make a career change or get off the 'rat run' in order to find a more meaningful way of life.
