What is a CHC51015 diploma of counselling?

If you’re interested in working within the Australian counselling world, you need to have qualifications. A diploma of counselling is the perfect way to get started within the counselling world and can give you the opportunity to complete higher education down the track. During a diploma of counselling, you’ll complete several units of competency, potentially including:

  • CHCDIV001 Work With Diverse People
  • CHCCCS019 Recognise And Respond To Crisis Situations
  • CHCCSL001 Establish And Confirm The Counselling Relationship
  • CHCCSL003 Facilitate The Counselling Relationship and Process
  • CHCCSL004 Research and Apply Personality and Development Theories
  • CHCCSL005 Apply Learning Theories In Counselling
  • CHCCSL006 Select And Use Counselling Therapies
  • CHCCSL007 Support Counselling Clients In Decision-Making Processes
  • CHCCSM005 Develop, Facilitate And Review All Aspects Of Case Management
  • CHCDIV002 Promote Aboriginal And/Or Torres Strait Islander Cultural Safety
  • CHCLEG001 Work Legally And Ethically
  • CHCPRP003 Reflect On And Improve Own Professional Practice
  • CHCMHS001 Work With People With Mental Health Issues
  • CHCDFV001 Recognise And Respond Appropriately To Domestic and Family Violence
  • CHCCCS017 Provide Loss and Grief Support 

All of these topics are designed to prepare you for work within community services, personal practice or working in other face-to-face roles in order to support people who need it the most. Counsellors are expected to continue to partake of professional development throughout their career, so a Diploma of Counselling is just the first step in a lifetime of training in interview skills, communication skills, micro-counselling and many other areas of importance in regards to the safety of individuals seeking mental health support.

How to study:

If you’re interested in completing your Diploma of Counselling through VET or TAFE, there are several study options open to you. Depending on each RTO‘s entry requirements, they may recognise prior learning and experience, so it’s worth finding out if you’re eligible for a credit transfer from a Certificate IV or other qualification.

Many courses now offer online learning options too, meaning you can enrol in a course that’s taught largely online so that you can study from anywhere in Australia or even overseas, although international students should enquire with CRICOS to check that they’re eligible.

You can also study both full time and part-time, with many courses offering mid-year starting dates, so that you can begin and keep studying at your own pace. Depending on the course code and organisation there may also be VET student loans available to help with tuition fees or course fees, as well as a variety of payment options for students.

So if you’re keen to start learning interviewing skills for counselling roles in order to work with young people and reduce their risk of suicide, or with soldiers with PTSD, or in marriage counselling, or one of any other area of mental health, enrol and get started in your diploma of counselling today!
