A great way to gain experience counseling others is by volunteering in nonprofit organizations, such as womenspace or any other agency, you can answer crisis lines or act as a mentor or listener on one of the many social sites or apps that provide free counseling services. You will need to take some college courses in social work, counseling psychology, and diversity, too. Most states will require that you earn at least a bachelor’s degree prior to working professionally, in many states you must have a master’s or higher. You will want to focus your study on issues that affect marriages, learn about divorce, family, and best practice communication for couples.
