I'm looking for a bit of advice from anyone who has studied any type of counselling course.
A friend of mine would like to become a professional counsellor but she is unsure of the best way to go about it. She lives way beyond the black stump in regional WA so will be studying by distance education. The internet connection can be a bit dicey because the lines go down when cows bump the electric fences.
We've been looking up courses from ACAP-Australian College of Applied Psychology and from AIPC-Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors, and also from various unis.
Can anyone advise us on whether it is worth doing a diploma or is it better to do a degree? She would like to be able to start her own business eventually.
If you are able to help it would be appreciated. Thanks heaps.
