Program Overview

Program Description:
The Master of Counselling – Health Sciences is nationally accredited by the Psychotherapists and Counsellors Federation of Australia (PACFA). The Graduate Diploma in Counselling constitutes the first year of this two year professional counselling master program. Counsellors and psychotherapists provide a vital role in the community. Our professional courses will enhance your existing experiential knowledge base and provide you with training in professional counselling. Through your study, you will develop knowledge and skills in interpersonal communication, group leadership, an understanding of health, human behaviour and development, and sociocultural contexts. You’ll develop professional competence and gain advanced counselling practice through experiential skills development and supervised practicum experience. You will broaden your analytical thinking and critical evaluation, synthesise and integrate information, assess theoretical concepts and principles of counselling, and propose appropriate models for working with clients, including individuals, couples, families, groups. These programs build upon your reflective practice to provide the potential for greater self-awareness and give you the theoretical and applied knowledge and skills of counselling which will enable you to work with a broad range of clientele.
