Amali’s story into Psychology and Counselling with The Career Academy
How did you hear about The Career Academy?
I saw an advert on Facebook and called the number
Why did you choose your The Career Academy course?
- Initially I took on the Diploma in Psychology and Counselling as I saw it as a way of helping me be a better People leader.
- It gave me an opportunity to see if Psychology was just an interest for me or something deeper that I would want to pursue more fully.
- The ability to study online and in my own time was really appealing and enabled me to complete the course within just a few months which was great.
- In comparison to other providers this was a more affordable option.
How did you find the tutor and student services support throughout your time with us?
The tutors and student services were always friendly and helpful to deal with
Have you been able to make use of the information studied and learnt in your course? If so, how?
I haven’t been able to use this information in a work sense as yet being that I choose to leave my previous employer a few months ago. However, the developmental insights learned via Psychology and the Counselling techniques within the course have been really useful in understanding and better dealing with my 6 year old son.
What’s your next step now you’ve graduated? What are you up to now?
The course really sparked a huge connection with me for furthering Psychology which I never knew I had. I also was able to attend 2 days of the Psychology Society conference due to receiving The Career Academy Top of Class award. This was 2 days of total geeking out on a fabulous event. I loved every minute of the event and this has made me want to further my education even more. At this point I am still trying to work out how I go about doing this.
