Some people feel called to serve God through the specific helping profession of Counselling. Located on the Morling campus near Macquarie Park University, the Counselling department offers Morling College students an opportunity to learn the skills and application of counselling from faculty who are all currently practicing educators and clinicians in providing therapy to the general community.
Those training in counselling can enter training at various levels. The suite of courses range from Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and Masters level training. The Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma has proved to popular with people wanting to add on a counselling component to their other ministry areas, whilst the Masters level training is designed for those who wish to choose Counselling as a specific career. All the courses are designed to offer the best of therapeutic intervention whilst remaining faithful to a Christian world view.
Morling students and prospective students are encouraged to contact Mr Neil Harris (Course advisor) for this department to learn more about how to become a counsellor.
