"It is a great privilege to be given the opportunity to speak into people's lives."

Mari-Shell Scott

 

With one hand I receive my Diploma with excitement, pride, joy, and dreams realised, but on the other hand I reach out to those who may need guidance and direction sharing with them life skills and keys to freedom. With better knowledge, passion and experience it is a great privilege to be given the opportunity to speak into people's lives, something that I don't ever want to take for granted.

 

May I encourage each and everyone of you who finds studying a drudgery to keep the momentum going the way I did. I kept myself accountable and I had a study partner, and just kept setting myself a goal. Don't forget the dream, the purpose as to why you started studying counselling. Whether it is just out of interest or just to gain knowledge and skills remember, that these are never wasted. It is also important to reward yourself when you achieve a unit. I am determined to further my qualifications in the areas of Family and Relationship Counselling.

 

To put what I have learnt into practice, I am looking forward to working in my local church, the community, local GP's, and setting up my own private practice called – A Positive Solution Counselling (A Change From The Inside Out).

 

In closing, I hope that a snippet of my story has inspired you. Remember to 'Live your dream – Believe in yourself and Just do it!'
