9th September 2013


Dear Mr Gordon,

This letter is in response to your online advertisement for a Counsellor.

The nature of my studies, skills, qualifications and work experience is perfectly matched to your job requirements. I possess comprehensive expertise in those fields mentioned in the job description, namely; issues of depression, eating disorders and addictions. All of these coupled with my compassion, vision and relentless enthusiasm make me an ideal candidate for your role.

I greatly enjoy having the opportunity to make a real difference to some one’s life by helping them to focus on their accomplishments and reflect on past successes rather than setbacks. I have over three years experience of counselling and treating clients for a range of complex psychosocial issues in community, clinical and private settings. As someone who holds a handful of recognised Counselling qualifications, I am also academically accredited in the right departments.

In my present role I manage a caseload of service users with complex needs, but my real expertise lies in treating anxiety, depression, relationship issues, women’s issues and health-related psychosocial issues. Furthermore, I have spearheaded case evaluations, psychological profiles and treatment plans for people with special needs.

I hope you will agree with me when I say that my abilities and experience precisely matches your requirements, and I very much hope you will invite me for an interview.

Yours sincerely,


Karen Higgins
