Our Graduate Diploma of Counselling and Psychotherapy course gives focused attention to some key forms of therapeutic interventions. With its strong vocational emphasis, students learn how to integrate theoretical constructs, gain increased personal knowledge, increase their insight and understanding, apply advanced therapeutic techniques and further develop their observational skills. A unique feature of the Graduate Diploma is the introduction to the theory and techniques of a brief integrative psychotherapy that integrates concepts from, the psychodynamic, cognitive, and existential and the humanistic psychotherapy.
