‘The Master of Counselling offered by Excelsia covered a wide range of therapeutic modalities that aligned with the kind of therapy style I wanted to pursue. I felt a degree like this one would be a great starting point for me.’
‘Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to work as a counsellor and make the world a better place. I chose Excelsia College because I wanted to learn counselling not only from a clinical worldview but also a Christian worldview.’
‘What I’ve learnt in counselling is a sense of self-acceptance and self forgiveness and that’s really key to help clients progress. Whether it’s grief, trauma or addiction or other external issues, I’ve learnt to meet people where they are. I think that’s been the key thing in this course that I’ve found the lecturers live out as well as teach.’
‘I have learned a tremendous amount of interesting things about myself, people and the world. I have made new friendships that I hope will last a lifetime. I have felt included and embraced just the way I am. The best things about the program are its diversity and small classes, which allow for a personal touch and a better perspective and interactive way of learning.’
