You will need to go to college no matter what. You will need Psychology classes and a master degree in most cases for school counselor. Once you get the Psychology degree and all the pre educational courses its after that you choose electives, like the type of Psychology you want to major in. Like clinical, forensic, MFT, and so on. You must at min. have a bachelors degree to get a well paying job to substain you while working toward the masters or whatever you decided to take. Thank you for the questions. The best of luck, in what ever career choice that you make.
