There are a number of counselling courses you can choose to study in Brisbane, such as:

  • Diploma of Counselling
  • Bachelor of Applied Social Science (Counselling)
  • Graduate Diploma of Counselling
  • Master of Applied Social Science (Counselling)

The School of Psychology and Counselling of the Queensland University of Technology (Brisbane, Australia) offers courses on psychology, behavioural science, and social work.

You can also study counselling in Brisbane at the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors. The Institute operates not only out of Brisbane, but also from several other locations in Australia. The Institute offers graduate certificate courses, diplomas and bachelor qualifications.

If the only qualification that you have is a Bachelor’s degree, then you will be limited to the type of services that you can offer and in the fees that you can charge. Obtaining a postgraduate qualification in counselling will give your career more options and better income. You also have the choice to complete your Bachelor’s degree, and then start work soon as possible, and then study for you masters’ or doctorate degrees online or part-time. If you belong to associations, it will give credibility to your practise, but to belong to some associations you need to meet the minimum requirements, and post-graduate qualifications are always good to have.

If you want to study counselling in Brisbane, make sure counselling is the career for you before you start!

It is important that you know your capabilities and limitations before you enrol to study counselling in Brisbane. You need to match these capabilities and limitations up with the requirements of a good counsellor so that you can determine whether you will find being a counsellor appealing.

Being a counsellor means that you help your clients gain insight to help themselves. Counsellors don’t give advice but need to be able to facilitate people’s conversations to develop the necessary insight. A good counsellor requires the ability to be non-judgmental while listening carefully. A good counsellor also needs to be empathetic. The best counselling qualities cannot be taught via an online course or in a classroom. These are qualities that you must inherently own. Other qualities you need are that you can be non-judgmental so that the patient can feel free to express emotions and thoughts during their counselling sessions. Sometimes emotions are aroused, and you need to be able to turn your emotions off so that each patient can get the best from you. After work, you must be able to leave you clients’ problems at the office when you head home. If you have these qualities and think you will be a good counsellor then read on.

If you want to study counselling in Brisbane, you will find courses that are nationally accredited, and that comply with the requirements of national counselling associations. The theory of any counselling course will give you the knowledge you need to cope with any counselling situation and offer your services. For example, if you have obtained a counselling diploma, you can work as a private counsellor. You can specialise in grief counselling or marriage counselling, or both. You could also work in law enforcement as a trauma counsellor or in a hospital as a grief counsellor.
