CHC51015 Diploma of Counselling

Overview

This qualification reflects the role of counsellors, who work with clients on personal and psychological issues using established counselling modalities. With face-to-face intensives, interaction and guidance from practice leaders in counselling from within Relationships Australia South Australia (RASA), online self-paced and facilitated learning, access to interactive texts and course facilitator support you develop your own ‘Integrative Approach,’ to Counselling. Rather than providing a set counselling style as a ‘one size fit for all,’ we enable students to develop their own unique style of counselling incorporating:

  • Personal qualities, skills and strengths
  • Knowledge gained through life experiences, work roles and prior studies
  • Preferences to therapeutic counselling styles, skills and techniques
  • The skills and knowledge required to complete this program with a flexible therapeutic framework
  • The skills and knowledge required to undertake general counselling work
  • High level communication in a range of commonly used modalities

This qualification equips you with the skills and knowledge to work in a defined and supported counselling role in an established agency rather than in independent practice and will add practical experience to an existing qualification.
