A Masters will build up your confidence as a researcher by equipping you with key skills such as research design, and methods in quantitative or qualitative analyses. There are also many other Masters' level courses which offer relevant training. Research modules that you complete as part of your professional training track are also highly relevant experience, so consider taking these courses to develop your skills and experience. Whether you are currently on a course or have just finished one, consider approaching journals and try to get the work that you complete during your studies published.
