Counselling or IO Psychology?

Counselling or I/O Psychology?

Helloo! So I’m currently working as an IO psychologist after getting my masters in the same field. But I’ve always wanted to pursue counselling; I did not do so due to the low wages and the years of supervision required along with passing different licensing exams.

But I’ve realised IO Psychology isn’t for me. It pays decently but it’s so boring and frankly a bit draining. I’ve always wanted to help people and knew counselling is something I would be good at.

If anyone has gone through something similar, what advice would you give? Thank you:)

PS: I already do counselling related volunteer work after my job as I tried the whole “get a job and then do what you like after it”. And no that isn’t working out for me. I just got burnout.
