Diploma of Counselling

published

I find this course relevant, challenging and interesting. The material is written very well and supporting reading recommendations are value-add to expand my understanding of the cognitive and practical skills required of this career path. Support staff is excellent and take the time to ensure my questions are answered properly and proactive in checking in with my progress. The assessments can be tough but fair, and feedback is useful in helping me amalgamate theory amd practical. Overall, will recommend this course to anyone keen to explore this degree.

Diploma of Counselling

The course content was of a very high standard.
I did not find the course difficult, but would imagine that some people who have not had experience in working in human services may require more assistance

Diploma of Financial Counselling

published

I have just completed the Diploma of Financial Counselling through AIPC. This course has provided me with sound knowledge in the theoretical and practical aspects of financial counselling. I found the feedback and generous sharing of knowledge from my prac assessor - Kelly invaluable. The self-paced online study has allowed me to complete the diploma around my job and my life. Thanks to the Buderim Support Office, no question was ever too difficult, they were always supportive and quick to respond to any calls or emails.

A great decision!

published

This diploma came highly recommended by various friends. And now, I recommend it, too. I loved the fact that it is online and self-paced giving me the opportunity to not feel pressured by deadlines and to enjoy the process. I felt supported by the Perth staff and my practical assessor. I gleaned so much as there is so much detailed information on each unit teaching me skills that I can use in all areas of my life. Well worth the decision and the time it took.

Transformational journey

published

What an experience! This course has stretched me far beyond what I had imagined, the content has been informative, to the point and I have learnt transferable skills, it has challenged me in an extremely positive way that has made a profound difference in my own growth! The teachers had been great in the practical exams which I was able to use the theory in what felt like a real life situation, and feedback has been constructive. Anyone looking at taking the leap to start, brace yourself because of who you have the potential to become from this Counselling journey!

Game changer

published

The Diploma of Counselling has changed my life! I have become more confident as a result of learning more about myself and how to understand others. The workshops really put the theory into practice and the support staff are so helpful. I would highly recommend this course to others, even if you don’t want to be a counselor, because the skills are transferable in so many ways.

AIPC Diploma of counselling

published

I am currently enrolled in the diploma of counselling. I have done both online and on campus role plays (due to the pandemic), and both systems were smooth running and straight forward. The unit assessor always gives prompt feedback for my written work, and the role play examiner is really friendly and very knowledgeable. If I further my studies in this field, I'll definitely stay with AIPC.

AIPC Online Learning

published

I have been studying with AIPC for several years and have completed by Diploma a Counselling in September of last year. I have since started my own practice and whilst initially I was concerned that I would not be prepared to counsel in a live situation, however I was pleasantly surprised to discover that when I began to practice the curriculum had prepared me to help my client. As I ventured through my learning journey the AIPC staff were incredibly supportive, I received great feedback and encouragement along the way. The support was practical and enabled me to complete the diploma. The modules were completely 'doable' along with the the resources provided.

I am interested in starting the Diploma of counselling and would do this part time. How many hours per week would I need to set aside for each of the 18 units?
How long can you take to complete the Diploma?

Hi Libby, I balance my study around my weekend hours as I work FT and do school runs plus housework - so it's chipping off the units consistently in whatever time bits are available to your personal circumstances. In broad terms, I commit about 3-4 hours of study every weekend, but prefer adjusting to ensure quality over coverage. If I get some ad hoc free time, I bunker down to do more. On average, you can get theory, additional reading, assignment and assessment done within 3 weeks per unit, but tailoring to adjust to your other daily responsibilities is the name of the game in the long term.

What I found is this approach gives me less pressure and motivates me through small wins. Sometimes you just got to do life and be flexible. Speak with the student office and they can help you too with good tips/guidance even before you enrol. Generally they encourage you to finish it under 3-4 years depending on how soon the school updates their syllabus to ensure the diploma reflects current standards and meet the profession's expectations. I'm definitely planning to wrap this up within the year because I want to start practising soon in real life. Hope this helps. Good luck and enjoy the experience!

I'll say this, most employers prefer a psychology degree. You can make up your own mind on where you go from here. Investigate the two ie. b. couns. or B. Psych. Sc. Investigate employment opportunities. It is amazing how far the right degree will take you.
