AbstractIn this qualitative study, counsellors explored their motivations for becoming a counsellor, and how these can change during training then change again post qualification. Ten participants were recruited and asked, by means of a reflective writing process, to explore their motivations for choosing to become a counsellor, how and if this changed through their training, and then again post qualification. Data were then analysed by thematic analysis. Findings revealed that motives were varied before beginning training. Post qualification many of the challenges had been dealt with and overcome and a great sense of satisfaction had taken place.
