This program prepares students for a career in counselling by introducing them to the theoretical foundation and practical skills required. It offers a unique combination of up-to-date theoretical knowledge and practical skills in counselling and psychotherapy. Theoretical perspectives are balanced by application of techniques and approaches, resulting in experiential and integrated learning results.

Students must also allow up to two and a half days each week for a Counselling placement in their second year of study (or equivalent). A research pathway that provides a suitable background for PhD candidacy is also available.

The clinical skills pathway has been designed to meet the training requirements for practitioners as outlined by the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA).
