Is Career Downshifting Possible?
I notice a lot of help for career-changers centered around moving from jobs that offer lower amounts of responsibility and 'meaning' into roles that offer more personal growth/capacity to help others/meaning and of course more responsibility and pay.
What happens when you want to go the other way around - that is, you've attained a profession in an area that I'm sure lots of people aspire to and offers lots of opportunity for helping others AND earning good money - and you want to move to a lower responsibility and lower stress job. It's so hard to get advice in this area - most people tell me to stay where I am, and I feel silly and ungrateful even thinking about moving from this career....after all, it does offer the opportunity to help people, obtain respect, and earn a decent pay.
The specifics of my situation - I want to move from clinical psychology to something else (not sure what yet)...seem to be drawn to admin roles, childcare but also have interest in writing/editing. Help?!
