What’s the difference between a Counsellor, Psychologist, Social Worker or Youth Worker?

Hi Guys,
This is something I get asked all the time.

So we’ve listed a quick break down of the main differences between each study area, to help you identify which career path would be best suited to you:

  • Counselling: I help people overcome emotional and relationship challenges as a Counsellor
  • Psychology: I understand the mind and human behaviour as a Counsellor
  • Youth Work: I empower and support young people within their communities as a Youth Worker
  • Social Work: I advocate for disadvantaged individuals and groups as a Social Worker
  • Case Management: I support people in accessing community services as a Case Manager
  • Coaching: I help people reach their full potential as a Life Coach

So now you know what are you looking for and how can I help?
