Master of Counselling (341JA) (088965G) at University of Canberra: Tuition: $30,000.00 AUD/year (Scholarship Available)

If students are looking to embrace a counselling career, the Master of Counselling provides advanced training, as well as a pathway to full registration as a clinical practitioner with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) – the nation’s professional accreditation body for counsellors and psychotherapists. With an emphasis on skills development, interactive teaching, experiential learning and self awareness, students will become familiar with a wide range of counselling modalities, all taught within research-informed and ethical frameworks.

The two-year course includes clinical practice across varied settings, and students will undertake relevant project work and applied research units too, becoming equipped to work across a range of public, private and community sector organisations in areas such as health, individual and family support services, addiction counselling, youth work, grief, disability and mental health. Students will demonstrate competence in a range of counselling skills, including collaborative goal setting, empathy, reflective listening, assessment, change and clinical interventions. They will graduate as a professional counsellor, ready for employment across community agencies, government departments, public health settings or as a private practitioner.
