Counselling and Psychotherapy is professionally regarded as the most sophisticated approach to clinical practice with clients. It is a multidisciplinary approach, which means it is a psychotherapy that considers equally the biological, cultural, sociological, psychological, philosophical, spiritual, and psychodynamic factors when working with people. While the course therefore draws from all these diverse fields, it is in teaching the integration of these disciplines that makes the Ikon syllabus on par with the most advanced and up-to-date research and practice in psychotherapy available today.

The Bachelor of Counselling & Psychotherapy is designed to provide graduates with a broad and coherent body of knowledge relating to the field of psychotherapy, with a specific emphasis to embed a conceptual framework and model of psychotherapeutic practice for the ‘whole person’.
This degree provides you with the practical skills and theoretical foundation you need to integrate Psychotherapy into your existing vocation or to establish a new career as a private practitioner. This unique course is inclusive of traditional healing methods and incorporates, in a live fashion, cutting edge science. You will learn to assist your clients in moving forward in a healing and holistic sense.
Through your personal experiential learning and personal development, you will learn the skills to personally engage with each and every client. You will learn various approaches and techniques and most importantly learn to adapt and utilise your knowledge and approach to the needs of your client with a unique and specialised Mind, Body and Spirit approach.
At Ikon, we place a huge emphasis on Psychotherapy (understanding one’s self) as well as giving you the skills to be both an excellent theoretical practitioner and a wonderful human. We recognise that with just the theoretical knowledge alone, you are likely to have a limited capacity to make a great counsellor.
