Hello My Dear Aspirant,
I see excellent answer given by both the counselors above but they are mainly pertaining to Career counseling.
Just would like to share my view point in terms of Personal counseling.
In case if you wish to be a Personal counselor whereby you wish to handle general issues of clients, you need to be a Counselor by profession.
By counselor I mean, you need to have a Masters degree either in Clinical Psychology or Masters in Counseling psychology.
You can pursue a masters degree, once you have cleared your Graduation in Psychology.
As a Psychologists you would be well versed with various therapies and Psychometric assessments that can help you in dealing with your clients.
Here I would advise that once you complete your masters degree, do gain some experience working under an experienced therapists and then you could venture on your own.
Apart from just a degree, you could also get certified with various other certificates like:
This will be an added advantage during the personal sessions.
Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck............
