Overview

This qualification is on the approved list of courses for Vet Student Loans. To check your eligibility: https://www.education.gov.au/vet-student-loans

This qualification reflects the role of counsellors who work with clients on personal and psychological issues using established counselling modalities. Students will develop their own Integrative Approach to counselling through face-to-face intensives*, interaction and guidance from practice leaders within the Relationships Australia federation.

Rather than providing a ‘one size fit for all’ counselling style, 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
  • Individual 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

Training is delivered via self-paced, online activities and assessment with classroom facilitated learning. All students have access to interactive texts and a course facilitator for ongoing support.

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.

Australian Institute of Social Relations, RTO 102358 (the training division of Relationships Australia South Australia Ltd) delivers this qualification in partnership with Relationships Australia NSW.

*Face to face delivery is available in Sydney and Adelaide only.
