Course Overview

Are you a good listener? Have you always pictured yourself counselling and helping others? Then the Counselling Pathway Certificate is the perfect place to start your journey. 

This course has been specifically designed for those students who are looking to START a career in counselling services. Becoming a Qualified Counsellor is not easy and the minimum requirement to work as a qualified counsellor is a AQF Diploma (costing anywhere from $5,000 – $12,000 depending on the institution) and will also require many hours of work experience. 

So BEFORE you dive into a Diploma and such a costly commitment, start with our Counselling Pathway Certificate and find out if you have what it takes! 

With this course you can then secure employment in counselling support roles and mental health organisations or alternatively use the course as a pathway to the Diploma when you are ready.

Our Counselling Pathway Course is based on the AQF Diploma course material, so you can be sure you are getting the best possible start to this industry and skillset.

*The Counselling pathway Certificate is also ideal for Aged care workers, Nurses and Life coaches looking to get skills in Counselling!
