There has never been a better time to become a counsellor. According to the Government's JobOutlook website, there are likely to be around 22,000 job openings over 5 years (that's about 4,400 a year). Counselling skills are also crucial for people in a range of helping professions, including human services workers, teachers, nurses, ministers of religion, corrective services officers, allied health workers, complementary health practitioners, human resources staff and administrators.  

Counsellors help people learn to overcome problems they face in their everyday lives, including relationships, career problems or any other personal setbacks and provide valuable mental health counselling to those in emotional need. Counsellors can also act as intermediaries in conflict resolution. Counsellors work in various sectors, including the health sector, community organisations, government organisations, education, welfare and private practice.
