Post New Topic

I am a graduate student graduating with my Masters in Counseling in August and my husband and I are thinking about moving to Belize in October, I was wondering if anyone could direct me where to look to find out the guidelines to earning my license in Belize? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I dont believe there is any qualification necessary to work as a councilor in Belize.
Medical professionals need to apply to the ministry of health to get a license to practice locally.
Non residents will require a work permit to work locally, but not if your are working as an online councilor for foreign based clients.

There is a need to be sure for kids and adults but there are practical limitations. There are no clinical psychologists in the country. There are two psychiatrists. There is a counsellor who works for the University of Belize. Her name is Renee. Cant recall her last name. But she would know the area. The local population is mired in 45% poverty and counselling is a luxury. Many seek support from pastors or local healers ( curanderos) for things like depression or anxiety. That leaves the eccentric expats who think its a swell idea to relocate to a 3rd world banana republic. Working with them is a definite option.. In this group you will find alcoholics, neurotics, PTSD viet vets, as well as fugitives and the flotsam and jetsom of humanity. But there is lots of need for therapists in the USA and Canada plus better renumeration.

You can check with the Department of human Services in Belize City and they can guide you in getting licensed or on Facebook check with Pamela Mckillen or Renee Wentz.
