HELPFUL TIP:

How your character makes a living is an important decision. After all, there’s probably a good reason why they chose this career. Think about how they pull on certain talents and skills, have positive or negative traits, and adhere to a specific work ethic to excel. Sometimes characters choose an occupation because of how they were raised, something they experienced, or even an emotional wound, so consider how all of these things will show readers who they are deep down, and why they do what they do.
OVERVIEW:
A dream interpreter analyzes and interprets their clients' dreams to extract possible meanings. The information they glean might be used to help their clients with self-growth and development. Other times, it can offer a window to the past, with the interpreter focusing on symbolism and contextual clues to unveil the client's buried feelings, emotional trauma, and resulting mental health concerns.

Dream interpreters may work in a private practice, out of a commercial office, or their personal residence. They might also work online, interpreting dreams via chat or video.

NECESSARY TRAINING:
No formal training is required for this career, though courses on dream interpretation can be taken. Psychologists who use dream therapy in their practices will have pursued coursework in this specialized area.
