I see so many people get hung up with certifications. They think that they just need the proper credential and then they can finally do the work that’s been calling them.
Most of my clients don’t have the proper credentials for the work that they do. They’re living their calling and a calling can’t be planned for ahead of time.
I myself have never had the right certifications. I teach graduate courses in the field of depth psychology and have never taken a graduate level psychology course, let alone a course in depth psychology. Years ago, I trained teachers at UC Berkeley. My course was titled “Instructional Strategies.”
I’d never taught a class before in my life.
Do the work that’s calling you. Walk through the doors that mysteriously open.
THOSE DOORS OPEN FOR A REASON.
You can get the certification later (or never).
Your work rests on who you are. Not your credentials.
We learn by doing.
