The Master of Counselling program, which is approved by the Australian Counselling Association (ACA) and the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA), aims to foster reflective awareness, develop key clinical competencies, and offer a solid theoretical grounding for a career as a professional counsellor. Incorporating modern counseling theory, research, and practice while situating it within a Christian worldview and mental health framework is the focus of the degree program. It produces counselors who are knowledgeable about the professional and ethical standards of the counseling profession, who are sensitive to the diversity and individuality of individuals, families, and communities, and who value and advance the dignity, potential, and wellbeing of all people. These counselors also have a personal understanding of the personal, cultural, relational, psychological, social, and spiritual domains of human experience and functioning.
Along with free individual counseling, the course covers helping students find placements, 100 hours of direct client contact, 25 hours of clinical supervision, and free personal counseling. This combo complies with PACFA 2020 Training Standards' strictest training requirements.
This program is appropriate for:
• existing counselors looking for post-graduate-level training;
• Individuals seeking to work as counselors and possessing undergraduate degrees (or an equivalent);
