Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who work as family and/or couples relationship counsellors. They may work independently or in organisations, providing counselling interventions, (rather than counselling support) for families and/or couples experiencing relationship issues of a complex nature.

Counselling contexts may include pre- or post- separation and divorce or where the client has involvement with the Family Law system. Counsellors at this level are making high level, independent, complex judgements in highly specialised contexts.

To achieve this qualification, the candidate must have completed 50 hours of work as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of units of competency.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.

Entry Requirements

Entry to this qualification is open to individuals who:

• hold an undergraduate degree or higher qualification in Counselling, Psychology, Social Work, Social Science or equivalent

or

• hold a Diploma of Counselling from the CHC Community Services Training Package or equivalent

or

• can provide documented evidence of previous experience in a family counselling environment in a job role involving the self-directed application of knowledge with substantial depth in some areas, the exercise of independent judgement and decision making, and a range of technical and other skills.
