Flexible delivery and study mode
Choose a part-time or full-time Bachelor of Counselling program, and on campus or external/online delivery (or a combination), to suit your circumstances and lifestyle.
Individual classes may be held either during the day or in the evening, so be sure to check the timetable to find out what will work best for you.
We understand the importance of flexible learning and believe offering students the options of part-time, full-time or external delivery is important in shaping our future alumni.
Capacity to make a meaningful contribution
CHC’s commitment to producing graduates with the capacity to make a meaningful contribution to their clients’ growth and wellbeing involves a strong emphasis on the acquisition and practice of counselling skills.
Although the Bachelor of Counselling is highly experiential in nature with a strong emphasis on the development of the person of the counsellor, it also values academic rigour and the importance of staying up-to-date with emerging trends and findings related to the fields of counselling and psychotherapy. This includes underpinning all aspects of the Bachelor of Counselling with the latest research on interpersonal neurobiology and mental health and encouraging students to engage with counselling research.
The Bachelor of Counselling is accredited by the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA). This means graduates can become provisional members of PACFA or join PACFA through a member association such as the Christian Counsellors’ Association.
As of 2024, the Bachelor of Counselling will be accredited by the Australian Counselling Association (ACA.) Please refer to the ACA website for the most up to date information.
