counsellor talking to client

As a Counsellor you will help people make positive changes in their own lives. You’ll take the time to listen, to care, and support individuals, families, whānau and communities in obtaining the resources they need. Placement is a significant element of this programme.

Your study will combine theoretical knowledge with hands-on learning. You will have the chance to learn about the industry through putting classroom learning into practice with your own clients. This programme also includes a mental health and addictions counselling practice focus. And our dedicated and experienced staff will be there to guide you every step of the way.
