Most of my life I've had two passions, Technology and Mental Health. My draw to both. Helping people and making life just a little bit easier for those who needed it. For most of my adult life, I've been throwing my hand in wherever I could, to help wherever I could. I guess at this point in my life it would be fair to say my vocation is helping others, as well as empowering others to help themselves.
To continue to do this at a higher level and to a higher standard, I need training! Given where I live, training locally as a counsellor is not an option, the course does not exist. Keen to make my dream a reality and keep the fire in my heart burning, I've taken online training, saved, and done whatever I could to learn as much as I could! At the same time, trying to find some way to obtain a recognised university qualification without having to move to another country to do so!!
At last, a door has opened! A chance to pursue my passion and obtain a counselling degree from Glasgow Caledonian University. Following that I can go on to specialise in the treatment of Substance Use Disorders.
But do this, I need a bit of help.
I've never been one to ask for help, pride has always been a barrier for me in that regard. However, Managing the course fees alone is not an option. Not if I also want to keep a roof and eat. I am hoping to crowdfund part of this, and I'm asking whoever could to donate whatever they can, to help me make this a reality.
The money donated will be used to pay a portion of the course fees and a little help with course books. Anything leftover, if I'm successful in this, will be broken down and given to mental health charities.
