As part of our integrative counselling studies, we offer counselling in undergraduate programs with a minor and major in counselling, as well as entry level and advanced counsellor training programs. Students gain essential skills in order to enhance their employment prospects as well as their practice as a helping professional.

As a graduate in our Graduate Diploma and Masters counselling courses, you will learn to work holistically with a diverse range of client concerns from across the lifespan, valuing social and cultural contexts. You will demonstrate competence in rapport building, empathy, reflective listening, case formulation and clinical interventions.

A core component of the training is a university facilitated work placement. This provides practical professional experience that will prepare you for future employment.
