Graduate School of Counselling
The Graduate School of Counselling at Excelsia College offers postgraduate counselling degrees that enable students to develop a strong theoretical understanding of contemporary counselling theory and research, to acquire advanced clinical skills including in modality specific areas, and to explore formation of their professional identity, so that they graduate ready for life as a professional counsellor.
Backed by more than 30 years' experience in Christian higher education, you'll learn in a supportive, experiential environment from warm, professional, expert academics who are also current practitioners. The face-to-face model emulates the clinical environment you’ll one day work in, with timetables designed to provide maximum flexibility to help you balance study, work, family life, church and other commitments.
Our PACFA and ACA accredited program prepares counsellors who will be informed of the latest theoretical, clinical and research advances relevant to counselling; who will be sensitive to the diversity and uniqueness of individuals, families, and communities whom they will work with; and who will value and promote the dignity, potential and well-being of all people.
The Christian worldview that underpins everything we do means you can live your faith and values authentically while learning to become a reflective and attuned counsellor ready to work in varied counselling settings. Importantly you’ll graduate with the clinical skills and knowledge and ethical framework needed to support your clients’ emotional and spiritual wellbeing appropriately, regardless of their belief system.
