The Master of Counselling at Monash provides a professional qualification and offers a combination of theory and professional experience, providing you with the knowledge and skills to begin a rewarding career as a counsellor.

The course is suited to people from a variety of professions, such as human resources, health, social welfare and education. It is taught by leading academics with extensive experience working as counsellors and psychologists.

You'll examine the various forms of professional counselling, including online and distance counselling, child and adolescent counselling, and individual, couples and group counselling.

You'll also gain in-depth knowledge across a range of contemporary cognitive-behaviour therapies.

This includes 140 'contact' hours (e.g. face-to-face, couple, family and group counselling) and 110 'non-contact' hours (e.g. observation, case notes, meetings, administration). You will complete 35 hours of supervision (which are included in the non-contact hours).
