Graduate Diploma in Counselling

Join us and develop your professional competence and personal readiness for a rewarding career in counselling.

Learn from our dedicated, professional and passionate teaching staff

Learn from experienced counsellors who are dedicated to the development and improvement of the profession in Western Australia.

The Graduate Diploma in Counselling is a year-long course (or part-time equivalent) which provides students with knowledge of the principles of counselling practice, theoretical frameworks and practice of applied counselling skills in a tutorial context. Students who complete the Graduate Diploma may apply for admission to the Master of Counselling and will be exempt from the units already completed which are common to both degrees.

As this course is committed to experiential learning, you will also focus deeply on the counselling relationship - the key feature of effective counselling practice - as well as engaging in critical appraisals of counselling literature.
