How to Become a Counselor Australia

In order to become qualified in counseling within Australia, you must undertake a Counselor course that is either a Certificate III/IV, Advanced Diploma/Diploma, Post Graduate/Graduate Diploma or Graduate Certificate or a Bachelor degree.  Some employers also require a form of placement that is typically offered to you by your training institution. Depending on the area of counselling you wish to pursue, there are a variety of courses for counselling that you may undertake that are more skewed to a particular type. For example, if you wish to study student counselling, you may undertake a student counselling course to enter this sub-industry area.

Alternatively, if you wish to learn the basics of counselling or would like to begin with broader study before you pursue a more narrowed area, there are some basic counselling courses you can choose to study.
