Listening to tell your own story, isn’t listening - Gem

Updated: Jul 12, 2020



I realised from a young age, I was a listener. Friends came to me to get advice or just vent.

After my mum died, I changed my career and go to university to become a counsellor.

I’m qualified now. I really want to ask - you may consider yourself a good listener but are you actively listening? Are you listening to understand? Listening to tell your own story, isn’t listening. Holding a safe space for others and really hearing them is active listening! As a counsellor, I urge you all to learn to listen right. That is the only way to solve for current mental health crisis.
