About this pro

My business stands out from others in two most important aspects that are expected from a counsellor from their clients perspective; that is, Time and Experienece. I have worked with an NGO for two years now and I have resolved issues like mental health, depression, alchoholism, drug abuse, male chauvinism, female objectification etc which are not even a "real thing" for most of us. I started working in depth when I began to understand the problems people are facing in my community. 
Therefore, having said that, I am a young counsellor and I think with the knowlege from my coursework in college along with serving as an NGO counsellor, I have the confidence to tackle situations with a zealous attitude towards my clients and their problems. 
Furthermore, as a brief idea of how I would like to have my sessions is that I would have my counselling sessions over emails or text in the beginning when the client and I start to build a bond to create a space to become comfortable with eachother in terms of expressing one's mind.
Currently, I do not have clients to work with and I do research to spend my time, hence with an undivided attention I think, I can give quality time to my clients and focus on them without too much pressure of various other cases unlike how it is for most counsellors- that is a plus.

The best part about my work is to make others believe that this world may be harsh on us but its a goddamn beautiful thing we have. We are blessed for we are one of those million human beings who got a chance to be one in this life instead of becoming an animal, tree, sky etc. We must cherist it, and that is where I like to test my limits to figure out different ways to make my client believe in the above statement. Counselling according to me is an art, an art that enables me to adjust with every possible person and gel with them by becoming their friend, sister, daughter, mother anybody. 
Yes, certifications, qualifications, accomplishments or even awards may metadalize one or me for everyone to judge whether I or not I am a good counsellor but I think connection with the person I am talking will truly help me solve their problem better. I look and strive hard for that connection.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I'd like to get to know them first, just like every counsellor. But I would like to keep it anonymous, so I would talk and respond over a phone call at first and eventually follow up with emails.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a bachelors in Science in Psychology from Grand Canyon Univeristy

I have worked with an NGO for two years helping the homeless kids pursue their basic human right to education.

I have freelanced for a few clients to help them out with their relationship, depression, low-self esteem and PTSD.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Yes, I take $80 per session - must be paid at the beginning of every session.

If at all, there is someone who requires help but is unable to pay the fees then I can make exceptions. Atleast, that is what I follow ever since I grew over the two years I worked in the NGO.
