I'm at no means an expert, but I have read a little bit about the occupation. From what I seem to have gathered it doesn't appear like there's much one to one with just an undergrad in social work. I think maybe it's possible that you could work for just one wealthy individual and be their care taker; but other than that I think you usually work with a lot of different people. However, if you mean that you get to have one to one with more than just one person, then I think there's plenty of that. But even then, I don't think there's much counseling. Usually it seems more like taking care of them physically. I think the more mental counseling roles would go to those who have a masters in social work, at the least. Even then, I would think those who do have a masters in social work would still be trumped by those with masters in nursing and even more so people with doctors in clinical psychology. You may want to give those two options a look into, if you're really enthralled with the idea of one to one counseling. Like I said, I think those with doctors in clinical psychology would be at the top of the food chain (They cannot prescribe medication, except for in two states currently, so you would be limited to just counseling), however, be warned that psychology is highly competitive. Currently it's the most popular undergrad major, meaning that it has the highest number of people currently taking psychology as their undergrad major. Therefore, grad school for psychology is extremely competitive, from what I've read you pretty much need a 3.5+ and undergrad research experience. So if you're looking into schools, or if you're at a school, make sure that undergrad research is offered.
