Yasemin’s Answer

Hi Maria! I think being an effective communicator, empathetic, patient and objective is important. The individual who will be seeking care from you can have a difficult time in getting their thoughts out and having a personality that is easy going and understanding can be helpful. I also think passion is important to be a counselor/therapist because it takes time and dedication and with passion you will feel more motivated to help your patients. There is also some differences between the two. I attached two links below on personality traits and the differences between both professions.

Best of luck!
