    I’m a former real estate professional, I chose to study psychology, because property is all about emotion. People sell because of death, departure, disability, divorce, and debt/distress, however estate agents are ill equipped. It is for this reason I’m doing a BAppSocSci Degree. Loving it! I now train agents on ethics, self-esteem, and teach empathy.

    I have just completed my degree in Psychology specialising in trauma. Do you offer honours? At this point I feel I have lost direction due to the lack of employment, therefore I would like to join in for other courses in relation to psychology to expand on my career. And hopefully discuss a way forward from class to career.
