The Diploma of Counselling (Processwork) (CHC51015) is taught as a combination of evening  classes, study groups, and home study readings/ assessments, which can be accessed at-a-distance or in person, and three intensive 3.5 day residential trainings which must be attended in person (Galston NSW).


This one-year course incorporates practical skills-based training practice; the theoretical foundations of Processwork Psychotherapy, contextualised Processwork Counselling Methods; the latest neurobiological developments (theory and skills) for working with trauma/stress effectively; as well as all the requirements of a government accredited Diploma of Counselling (CHC51015).


Our Diploma of Counselling may be taken by either professionals already working in the industry (counselling, mental health and coaching field) who’d like to develop and deepen their skills, as well as new students wanting to develop counselling skills towards commencing work in the counselling and psychotherapeutic field.


This Diploma course covers the information you need to commence work as a counselling practitioner and provides the context, group-learning support and encouragement to develop your self-awareness, alongside your professional skills as you move along this pathway becoming the best counsellor you can be.
