Introduction

The Master of Counselling provides students with the theoretical principles of counselling, sociocultural contexts, advanced counselling practice, experiential skills development and supervised practicum experience in external agencies. This course is designed for health professionals, psychologists, pastors, educationists, social workers and other human service workers who wish to advance their career in the field of counselling. Three streams are offered: Counselling, Addictions or Rehabilitation Counselling. The course is suitable for practitioners who intend to work in a variety of private or public domains. A feature of the program is flexibility, enabling focus on specific areas of interest with didactic and experiential units. The experienced counsellors and psychologists in the program utilise teaching and learning practices designed to broaden analytical thinking and critical evaluation, synthesise and integrate information, develop professional competence, assess theoretical concepts, formulatehypotheses and propose appropriate models for working with clients. The program also builds upon a student's reflective practice to provide the potential for greater self-awareness and create the essentials for building a therapeutic alliance.
