Integrative counselling is different from conventional counselling. 

Our extensive industry-approved program has been designed by experts in the field to cultivate empathetic and skilled counsellors.

Integrative counselling harnesses a diverse array of techniques from various modalities to personalize a holistic approach for each client's unique healing requirements.

It acknowledges the complexity of individual experiences, recognizing that no single method universally addresses all client challenges.

Through thoughtfully curated modules, students explore human behaviour, wellness, and therapeutic interventions. From foundational holistic counselling principles to advanced techniques integrating in-depth studies of positive psychology, the course offers a transformative learning journey.

Develop an advanced understanding of the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit, and learn how holistic approaches empower comprehensive well-being.

Delve into advanced stress management, positive coping strategies, and resilience-building, acquiring potent tools to guide clients through life's challenges. 

This evidence-based and heart-centred professional program provides hands-on supervised practice, refining counseling skills and integrating evidence-based research for holistic well-being.

Graduate not only as a counsellor but as a holistic wellness facilitator capable of profoundly impacting clients' lives.

Whether you're new to counselling or aiming to enrich your existing practice, our Master Practitioner of Integrative Counseling program offers a transformative route to becoming a skilled and compassionate professional.

Who should do this course?

This pathway leads to a fantastic career as an Integrative Counsellor for those interested in psychology, how we think, why we behave the way we do and how we can live our best possible, healthiest and happiest lives.

Upon successful completion of part one (Registered Holistic Wellness Coach – Part Time - 6 months), students may begin practising as a Registered Holistic Wellness Coach while continuing to study toward their Master Practitioner of Integrative Counselling qualification if they wish to do so.

You can establish your own independent wellness business if you wish, and you may also seek employment in holistic healthcare centres, holistic psychology practices, wellbeing clinics, health clubs, natural therapy centres and retreats, gymnasiums, respite centres, and community centres as well as several other areas that seek to employ qualified holistic integrative counsellors with a focus on mind-body therapy, meditation, stress management and positive self-development. 

On completion of this internationally recognized and industry-accredited professional training program, you will have the skills, qualifications, and confidence to establish your own Holistic Integrative Counselling Practice, develop a solid general holistic wellbeing practice or a specialist practice focused on one or more particular areas of interest to you.
