About Counselling

Do your friends and family tell you that you’re a good listener? Do you enjoy helping them resolve their issues? If that describes you, then maybe you should consider a career in counselling.

Counsellors perform a critical role for individuals, and within the community, as they guide people through difficult times and emotions. By choosing to study a counselling course online, you can turn your sympathetic ear into a rewarding career.

There are a number of specialist avenues you can follow to gain the qualifications and skills needed to become a counsellor. If you study a course specific to counselling, you will cover topics such as case management and facilitating the counselling relationship, as well as personality and development theories. You will also learn how to apply counselling therapies to address a range of client issues.
