Counselling Careers

With an ageing population and mental health issues on the rise, the community services and health sector is fast becoming recognised as crucial to a healthy, fair and well-functioning society. In this environment, good counsellors are in great demand.

Counselling is the perfect career for those who love to help others, offering empathy and a willing ear to those in distress. It can be challenging but also offers enormous personal satisfaction.
