Hi, I would start by looking for some volunteer or internship positions, you can call your local counseling centers or even a charity organization that supports counseling services in your area. I would google counseling services near me and see if they have time to speak to you about it.
Dina recommends the following next steps:
I think that in any career, not just the field you're asking about, the key to moving up the ladder is gaining a large deal of industry and company knowledge. This means developing skills deep within your current job but also seeking opportunities to gain knowledge on areas outside of your current job. Depth and breadth of skills helps get you visibility as well and is key to promotion.
Hope this helps!
