The counselling faculty at Tabor Adelaide have a strong commitment to transformational learning. Our aim is that students grow in the knowledge and skills required of professionals working within counselling and related human services sector. Our accredited post graduate courses aim to effectively integrate theory and practice which leads to potential employment opportunities.
The uniqueness of this course is evident in the following:
The Masters program builds on the Tabor Adelaide Graduate Diploma in Counselling, which constitutes the first year of the course. In the second year of the Master of Counselling there are 48 credit points to be completed. The Clinical strand has a strong emphasis on skills development and addressing the complexity of counselling with clients across the social spectrum. The course will also introduce students to research and areas of specialisation through a research project and course work. The Research strand has a strong emphasis on research.
The Clinical strand is designed to equip students to work as counsellors, or for service within the human services sector. Students will also be eligible for membership with a professional counselling association at the completion of the program. The Research strand allows students to focus and build knowledge and expertise in their chosen area of interest. It is also designed to introduce the student to research skills that can be used in either a clinical or academic environment.
