I have recently completed my final assignments for my psychotherapy degree but am prohibited from graduating and practicing as a certified psychotherapist unless I am able to pay the entirety of my fees.
After spending almost 30 years working in London’s financial city, I was diagnosed with various mental health issues and became aware of the contributions the toxic work environment were having on my wellbeing. Aware that this was the case for numerous of my colleagues and friends, I set out to help others in similar situations. I began to retrain as a psychotherapist in one of the leading schools in London which requires you to take both night classes and gain practical experience in volunteering as a therapist in charities and hospitals. As this is a private institution, traditional loan services such as Student Finance are not accepted. Additionally, throughout my course I have encountered numerous hurdles including the pandemic and the inability to take up substantial work as my request for Settle Status was held despite working, living and marrying in the UK.
Although I have sought every possible form of income, these do not begin to cover the substantial fees of my education and am having to turn to the support of others. I am hoping to cover the outstanding sum which would enable me to graduate, receive a diploma in exchange for my hard work over the past 5 years, and begin to practice psychotherapy formerly with private clients. This would finally allow me to support myself as well as volunteer my services to those in need. Do feel free to message me, should you wish to have anymore information.
