Excellent Preparation

I have been listening for several months to older episodes along with new releases in preparation for my master’s degree in school counseling. I received a huge compliment today in class that my analysis and response to a fictional client sounded like that of an experienced counselor. I owe most of that honor to the podcast hosts, Rory and Ken, who have engrained a great deal of understanding of counseling theories and practices in my mind. I also would like to thank the members of the Facebook group of the same name as the podcast for posting questions of ethics and resources that are often answered in the podcast as well as in the comments.

A great find!

I am a clinicial mental health counseling student in New York. I'm entering my second year of my Master's program. I have been searching for a podcast to prepare for my exams, and I stumbled on this by searching through my podcast apps. I love the format of the podcast and I find it helps me feel connected to all of the students out there with similar interests! Thank you for doing this! Keep up the excellent work!
