Why Counselling & Psychotherapy?

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.


Professionally Accredited

The course meets the required guidelines as specified by the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), and the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). This course is also approved by the Australian Counselling Association, and graduates will be immediately eligible for Level 2 membership with the ACA, with the possibility of increasing membership levels after acquiring the appropriate amount of professional development and experience.
