Course Aims

The Graduate Diploma of Counselling is designed to develop counselling competencies and provide training for professionals who seek to incorporate advanced counselling skills in their primary occupational role. The aim is to equip our Counselling Interns with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to establish and maintain an effective alliance with their Clients in order to assist them to work through issues and concerns towards making an effective change.

The course will introduce our Counselling Interns to the major theoretical principles and develop in them an understanding on how various interventions can be applied in counselling settings. Counselling Interns will also learn to competently apply research methodology in a multi-cultural setting. The course is intended to prepare Counselling Interns for professional practice as a counsellor in a range of human service organisations.
