Counsellors journey with individuals, couples, and families as they face their challenges, grow and make changes. BTI’s degree in counselling offers students a unique blend of courses that allow growth in heart, mind and awareness.
In our Bachelor of Counselling three-year degree programme you will experience personal growth and transformation as well as gaining the knowledge and skills for supporting children, young people and adults when they are facing grief, past and current abuse/ trauma, addictions, relationship struggles, parenting challenges, lack of confidence, anxiety, depression, social/cultural disconnection.
Graduates of this degree will be eligible to gain professional association membership and take up counselling and therapy roles in community agencies, churches and, when ready, private practice.
