The Institute's Diploma of Professional Counselling is the country's most reasonably priced counselling qualification. As Australia's largest and longest established provider of counsellor training, we're able to amortise our costs across a large number of students. Thus, we deliver a high standard of counselling education and study support, for a lower investment.


AIPC has specialised in external education for over 16 years and has a highly qualified Education Team who will support you throughout your studies. Help is only ever a phone call or email away and you have access to:


  • An Education Team of over 65 degree qualified counselling professionals, all with extensive industry experience and teaching and assessing qualifications.

  • An  online Knowledge Base 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that contains over 4,000 specific questions and answers relating to your course.

  • Unlimited FREE phone support 9am to 5pm (EST) on the 1300 Study Assistance Line where you can discuss any study questions you may have with Education Team members.

  • Unlimited email support. Send a question any time and have your enquiry replied to within the next working day.

  • And you have the support of your local Student Support Centre who will link you into a local student support network (if you wish to stay in touch with other students); help you complete your practical assessments; and co-ordinate your In-Class or tutorial activities.

In a survey of several thousand students (Yes, we regularly ask students and graduates how we are performing so we can continually improve our level of service!), 86% of responders indicated that our level of student support was "Beyond their expectation."


AND, prospective students of the Institute can benefit from a variety of course investment methods, so your enrolment into the Diploma of Professional Counselling is not delayed due to financial considerations.


There are two payment options for students enrolling into the Diploma of Professional Counselling, each of them with specific advantages:


Upfront Payment Option

Students who decide to pay their course fee upfront will enjoy a substantial discount on the normal price of the Diploma. Students can concentrate on their future studies without having to worry about further payments.


Regular Payment Plan

Those students who do not want to pay their course fees upfront, can take advantage of making regular monthly payments over 21 or 24 months. Further savings apply if these monthly payments are made by credit card or direct debit.  The Institute endeavours to keep the monthly repayments as affordable as possible.


For further information about course investment options, please contact your closest Student Support Centre.


Play Therapy is the least intrusive form of counselling for children, helps them to address and resolve their own problems building on the natural way children learn about themselves and the world around them. Thus it is to children what counselling is to adults. While it is relatively new to Australia, it is a tried and proven method in many other countries.


The Inaugural Asia-Pacific Play Therapy Conference will take place from 20th to 24th of May 2007 in the City of Darwin, Northern Territory. This conference is being organised by the Steering Committee for the proposed Australasian Play Therapy Association.
