WK3176 - Paetahi Tumu Kōrero Bachelor of Counselling
If your aim is to become a professionally qualified counsellor, this is the programme for you.
After completing this programme, you’ll be able to enter the counselling profession at a beginning practitioner level.
Practical placements are an essential part of the programme and you’ll spend time working in community agencies. You’ll also be involved in your own counselling and group work each year. In your final year, you’ll be able to select a practice focus in either Mental Health and Addictions counselling, Māori-centred counselling or Family/Whānau counselling. Once you’ve graduated, you’ll be able to apply for membership of a relevant professional body such as the NZAC, Te Whāriki Tautoko, DAPAANZ or NZ Christian Counsellors Association.
You’ll have developed the skills and professional attributes to enable you to work collaboratively within this increasingly complex and interdisciplinary sector.
