Hello Kevin,   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

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. Wish y
