If you can get your certification in counseling or therapy, Teletherapy is very popular right now. Online with a camera can still be a very good counseling session. Also look into non-profit organization, just because they are non profit under the laws of non profit does not mean they do not pay their employees... or therapists or counselors.... google it up! Good luck

Hi, I'm not sure if you mean a certificate in high school or college. There are some different paths if counseling is something you are interested in. You can go the social worker route or licenced mental health counselor which have very different requirements. I myself am a social worker and work as an independent therapist. With a bachelors degree in social work you can do group therapy bjt need a masters to do individual counseling Hope this helps.

I notice your location seems to be in Ontario, Canada. Being in the U.S., I'm not familiar with the mental health and/or substance abuse treatment opportunities in Canada. Maybe a place to get more localized information regarding your question would be college or high school career advisement services. The ability to provide services to persons with mental health or substance abuse problems depends a lot on the amount of education, intern training, certifications and, in the U.S., state licensing requirements. Providing tele-health services, for example, most likely would require the same sort of licensing or certification as doing in-person, in-clinic or hospital services. In general, any sort of "human services" requires some sort of licensing, and getting qualified to apply for a license means meeting certain minimums of education and training.

Hi if you have your diploma get your CADAC license counsel D&A' s Gambling
If you're interested in couseling you can go for social work or Mental Health Counseling. But find out your strengths and weaknesses. That way you'll know if you really want to help the people who really suffer from these issues. But understand there are limited funds and resources being issued and more people are affected. But good luck with the love of Jesus live well.
