This course filled a missing gap not offered as part of the TAFE module for both the Certificates 111 in Aged Care and Home & Community Care (HACC). During my time working with Uniting Care Ageing, I found myself wanting more knowledge and understanding especially towards the process and impact of grief and loss for many of my elderly clients…I searched through several advanced educational systems for the particular area to be studied and understood. I decided using Careerline Courses being satisfied had how the modules covered a very wide area regarding the grief and loss counselling areas.

Although I was aware of some of the processes of counselling it was very useful to go through them formally. The feedback from my tutor was very helpful too in identifying some of the potential pitfalls when counselling.

Why study counselling?

Counselling can be a very rewarding career pathway, and taking an online counselling course from Careerline Courses is a practical way to obtain the skills to start your own career or work effectively with others. In a number of cases, especially stress management and anger management, the self-awareness developed through these courses can be of a positive and life changing standard.


Can I work as a counsellor after completing one of these courses?

Legally yes, but we wouldn’t recommend it because 100 hours is not really enough study time or practical experience for you to operate as a professional counsellor.  We suggest these courses work very well as a stepping stone before committing to a Diploma or a Degree, or for your own information and self awareness or if you are in a situation where are already providing information advice but want to consolidate your understanding further.


How do I become a Counsellor?

While in Australia counselling is not a government regulated industry, and there are no official requirements, we would advise that you complete a Diploma of Counselling as a minimum.
