If you’re looking for a rewarding career in counselling or furthering your own personal development, our Counselling Therapist Diploma program will provide you with the stepping stones to help others overcome challenges, achieve their goals and better their lives. You will learn about proper self-care, ethical decision making, strengthen relationships, how to approach and resolve real-life situations and other applicable soft skills.
Many people grow up knowing they want to do some sort of counselling, and typically those who are drawn to this career have a natural skill set that allows them to be successful. Stenberg can help you fine-tune these skills in such a way that you will be able to create an optimal environment for growth for you and your clients. Our Counselling Therapist Diploma program is thorough and will give you the skills you need to change someone’s life.
This program will prepare you for supporting yourself as well as individuals, couples and families from a variety of different backgrounds and circumstances through in-class learning and the practicum. You will be able to employ a variety of different tactics for specific clients and empower your clients to face any challenges they may meet and transform theoretical knowledge into practical skill through frequent role plays, simulation weeks and integrated counselling practice. After successfully completing the program, you will enter the workforce with an open mind, an open heart and the ability to change lives.
You will have access to free clinical supervision and use of our counselling clinic for two years following your graduation while you work toward registration with ACCT and/or CPCA.
