About

The Psychotherapy and Counselling course from Western Sydney University brings together theory and practice, and gives you the tools to make a meaningful, real-life impact in the fields of psychotherapy and counselling. You will also enjoy the close guidance of Western’s highly experienced clinical practitioners and internationally recognised psychotherapy educators.

Overview

The Psychotherapy and Counselling course from Western Sydney University is designed to expand and refine your capacity to listen deeply and provide in-depth support to people struggling with emotional issues and life difficulties.

This is a deeply humanistic program in which you will explore the role of the human psyche and learn how your own life experiences and perspectives can be used to help others achieve their personal and mental-health goals.
