About This Course
The Graduate Diploma in Counselling has been developed to allow those with a previous undergraduate qualification/s to continue developing skills for effective interpersonal engagement. The qualification also serves as a pathway as the subjects comprise the first year of the Master of Counselling Practice course.
The course is designed to build self-awareness and your capacity to relate to and engage with the broad range of clients in need of counselling support. However, there are other significant benefits to developing your communication and counselling skills, with relevance to a broad range of human service contexts such as counselling, teaching, nursing and ministry.
Building on your previous study, the Graduate Diploma in Counselling will help you develop a comprehensive understanding of foundational theories in counselling. The many specialisation subjects available will help you more effectively customise the delivery of your counselling, depending on situations and contexts.
Counselling can change lives for the better. If you want to turn your counselling awareness into a career or if you are seeking a pathway in a Counselling Masters degree, the Graduate Diploma may be the right path for you.
Graduates will find work in counselling and counselling-related disciplines across a wide variety of government and/or non-government agencies.

Young people are actively involved in shaping our world. So, what will this world look like for all of us in the future? How will life be better for citizens of the next century? The Tabor Bachelor of Applied Social Science (Youth Work) is developed around a central, optimistic ideology – that young people enrich society. Such enrichment requires unity and collaboration.
