What qualification do I need to practice as a counsellor?
To formally practice as a counsellor, you'll need a qualification that can give you the skills needed to provide counselling services for clients experiencing mental health issues or undergoing extenuating circumstances. Most registered counsellors who get qualified generally have a bachelor's degree, however, most who have limited experience in the field can gain entry-level work with a diploma-level qualification.
Upskilled offers a counselling qualification delivered online at a diploma-level. The course duration is generally around two years but depending on the student, this can be done in less than the anticipated time frame.
