One of the most important things I think you can do is look for information on various search engines and Professional organizations such as the American Counseling Association and American Psychological Association in order to get a better idea of the wide variety of opportunities from which you can choose. I suggest learning in some detail about areas of counseling that sound most interesting to you, and to keep in mind that if you begin to head down one path and decide it is not the right one for you, be willing to change direction toward things you most like and believe you would be most satisfied doing. Finding an advisor or mentor can be especially valuable to you, as you can draw from their experience and interact with someone who can help guide you further.
Your question is very important to people who are just starting out in any field. Guidance from experienced, trusted others will probably be of great benefit to you. Make certain, though, that you are not overly influenced into choosing paths that do not feel right.
I wish you happiness in your chosen work.

I am working on my MA in Psychology: Clinical Counseling. In order to become a therapist here in the states we need a Masters Degree and then we need to complete whats called trainee hours. After all that we can apply to become a licensed therapist. I tell you that becuase for us the process is largely governed by the state we live/plan to counsel in. It will be important for you to google the licensing process where you live. Once you've done that, check for the degrees that are required. There are several steps here in the US but it may look different where you are.
I've noted some steps below for you to consider. Hopefully, you find them helpful.
