My name is Monika. I am a Christian Counsellor and an Addiction Rehab Facilitator. The beginning of my counselling career has been so redeeming that I’ve decided to come to Cornerstone Institute for further qualifications. I always knew that I wanted to serve people, but I didn’t realize until now that this is my true calling.

My degree will make me into a better counsellor. The lessons I learn here are eye-opening: they help me to be more perceptive in understanding what sort of challenges people are going through. A degree also makes me more employable, and I’ll graduate with job opportunities that will give me an even bigger platform for doing what I love.

I’ve seen first-hand the life-changing impact good counselling can have. I’ve witnessed people who were contemplating suicide transform into positive, happy people with light in their eyes and joy in their hearts. I want to help people realize that transformation, and my degree is the first step to doing just that.
