A good listener. A great help

You know life can get messy at times. And when you see someone struggling with the difficulties of life, you instinctively want to help.

At Western Sydney University, our Master of Psychotherapy and Counselling expands and refines your capacity to listen deeply and respond appropriately in times of emotional distress. You’ll get to know yourself much better, so that you can help others to do the same. Taught by highly experienced clinical practitioners and internationally recognised psychotherapy educators, you’ll learn to bring theory and practice together, receive practical guidance to make meaningful impacts, and be supported by staff to counsel people in real-life situations.
