Some of the different types of counselling are:

  • spiritual counselling
  • personal counselling
  • grief counselling, trauma counselling
  • drug and alcohol counselling, family counselling
  • relationship counselling
  • The difference between counsellors and psychologists

At the time of writing, counsellors don’t necessarily need a degree. The psychology profession is well regulated making it necessary for psychologists to have a degree, as opposed to the counselling profession which is unregulated. The healthcare sector in Australia believes that the counselling profession needs to be professionalised so that the quality of counsellors remains of a high standard. For this reason, rigid criteria for the counselling profession need to be set. The code of conduct will control behaviour and will also outline requirements for counselling courses in Adelaide and the rest of Australia. A number of regulatory bodies, governments and health departments are working together to accomplish this.

For instance, the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors (AIPC) ensures that professional counsellors complete accredited education through the Institute’s range of counselling services, diplomas and certified courses. An example of a counselling courses in Adelaide that includes courses on relationship counselling, group counselling and grief counselling, is the Bachelor of Counselling qualification. Any counsellor equipped with the Institute’s counselling courses in Adelaide will be well-rounded as the courses are accredited and top-notch.

The Australian Counselling Association (ACA) raises the bar with increasing the quality of courses and qualifications available. The Association establishes training standards that are appropriate, accredits appropriate courses and assists consumers to find appropriate counselling services, whether they live in Adelaide, Perth, Queensland or Tasmania. The ACA aims to give the counselling profession the respectability it deserves. It represents professional counsellors and psychotherapists throughout Australia, including Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

If you want to enrol in a counselling course, you must make sure that your qualifications are recognised nationally. Therefore, you must ensure that your course provider is aware of the current standards that are required by the two associations.

Do you want to study counselling in Adelaide on-campus or online?

Fortunately with the growth of technology, students can choose whether they want to study full-time, part-time or online. There are several courses that are presented in either manner. Also, students can choose whether they want to attend classroom-based courses or rather study full-time or part-time online courses or whether courses must be hybrid. Fortunately, the options are there so that your studies can fit in with your lifestyle, since each of us has a different lifestyle. More and more people need to study part-time while they work, so the options are very helpful.

In the old days, people stayed in one job for their whole career. Nowadays people change careers often in search of better salaries or more job satisfaction. Changes that are made can be big (from counselling to nursing and midwifery) or smaller, like becoming a psychologist after being a counsellor for a number of years.

Your lifestyle and the demands that it takes from you will basically determine the format of the counselling course you ultimately decide on.
