Rina’s Story

Adelaide, SA

As a graduate of Tabor I was able accomplish my goal of becoming a counsellor and working with clients with complex trauma and in victim support. This was important to me as it combines my previous training and experience in law with counselling skills.

The sensitive and flexible study options at Tabor nurtured me and allowed me to develop the confidence needed to excel in my own capabilities.  The way the classes were structured and information was relayed broadened my thinking and stimulated self-exploration and investigation into interest areas.

Tabor’s staff showed a high level of care towards their students. Their flexibility in interacting with a range of students goes to show their caring nature and their belief in the values of the institution.  The practical experience gained while completing the practical component of the course, along with the care and guidance of informed and experienced counsellors and supervisors, allowed me to be competitive in the field. I entered the sector with confidence knowing that the training, both academic and practical, I had received was invaluable.

What stands out most was the thinking and planning that went into establishing the counselling course. I was able to receive full PACFA accreditation upon graduation of the course which made the effort during study worth so much more as I was certain that my degree would be appropriately recognised by registering bodies.
