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.

This training program enables students to develop their own unique style of counselling incorporating:

  • Personal qualities, strengths, skills and knowledge gained through life experiences
  • Individual preferences to therapeutic counselling styles and techniques
  • A flexible therapeutic framework
  • The skills and knowledge required to undertake general counselling work
  • High level communication and interpersonal skills

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.

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