To answer your question, one must ask at what point of your career journey are you posing this question. If as a 10th or 12th grader, you are aspiring to be a counsellor and if you have the aptitude, interest and personality to match the occupation, then yes - counselling:be it psychological or career counselling, is a bright option. Now how do you make it rewarding? By pursuing the requisite course from a good college (note: learning is not a one time affair, as a counsellor myself, I still learn everyday), gain credible certifications and gaining practical experience and mark
Sounds very very interesting.
Honestly speaking, Psychology or counseling though there is a wide spread awareness, but as such a counselor does not fall into a high income group.
Thus I would suggest that pursue an MBA and take up a job in a corporate. Get your dream of owning a house etc full-filled. And in the meanwhile get a certificate in guidance and counseling and in the weekends work as a career counselor and satisfy your desire too.
But incase if you are keen on Psychology only, then I would suggest, look for opportunities in International schoo

Since you are a Philosophy honors, most likely you would not be eligible.
But still, it would be good if you could contact the University and get a first hand information.

It is you and only you, who could select a course or career for yourself, depending on your line of interest.
If you are interested in Social work and wish to join either an NGO or corporate in their CSR team, then MSW would be a better option. Please note admission is based on an entrance exam.
Incase you are interested in dealing with legal aspects and policy making, then LAW is suitable. Please note as a lawyer too you could work as a social worker, seeing to it that rules laid down are followed thoroughly.
I have put down the work done by both, now the choice is yours.
