The Master of Counselling degree prepares graduates for a range of counselling-related positions within the mental health sector. For example, graduates work in private practice and a variety of Christian, church-based and secular counselling services, centres and programs (such as schools; private, government and NGO agencies; and child and adolescent services). They work with varied age groups and target populations (children and adolescents, the homeless, troubled youth, adults with a range of mental health issues, the unemployed, the elderly); addressing a range of life issues including trauma, loss and grief, relationship and family issues, identity formation, spiritual concerns, illness and disability.


The Master of Counselling degree is a PACFA accredited course (PACFA – Psychotherapy & Counselling Federation of Australia) and an ACA accredited course (Australian Counselling Association). Historically graduates of the program have applied for membership with PACFA and The ACA subject to meeting their membership requirements. Students can also join the Christian Counsellors Association of Australia (CCAA). Concurrently graduates are able to apply for listing on the Australian Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (ARCAP), subject to meeting the ARCAP registration requirements.


NOTE: It is not necessary to be a Christian to undertake this course.

What do our students say?

‘In my two years of studying counselling at Excelsia 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.’
