The Diploma of Professional Counselling is an internationally-acclaimed course featuring several popular counselling theories along with the fundamentals of human behaviour and practices of counselling.


In the early 1990's, the Institute started its activities with the 'Professional Counselling' course, a pioneering course in the counselling industry. Sixteen years later, and after timely reviews and developments conducted with the participation of highly qualified counsellors, educators, psychologists and other professionals, the Diploma of Professional Counselling has evolved into a flexible, responsive and comprehensive course.


But the Diploma is not alone in its evolution. During recent years, AIPC has instigated a range of learning tools to augment the counselling studies of AIPC students, including:


The Professional Counsellor Journal


The Professional Counsellor journal is a comprehensive electronic journal that focuses on case studies, ethical issues, and counselling applications. Compiled by our professional team of counsellors, psychologists and education specialists, this publication is available FREE to AIPC Students and Members.


Institute Inbrief eZine


AIPC's fortnightly ezine is Australia's most popular electronic counselling magazine. It regularly delivers powerful strategies for personal development, tips to improve the growth of your counselling practice, the latest industry news, and much more.


The AIPC Article Library


An excellent, easy-to-access online library, containing the best articles featured in the Institute's various publications. Apart from a wide range of articles from several counselling areas, you can also take advantage of the practical format that allows you to receive every new publication DIRECTLY in your PC or laptop.

Each role play is approximately 12 minutes in length and includes captions of the specific skill as it is demonstrated. To learn more visit:


AIPC students have access to many extra resources that are a useful adjunct to their studies. Don't waste time - visit to find out how you can study with the Institute.


Many students of the Diploma of Professional Counselling attend seminars to complete the practical requirements of their course. Seminars provide an ideal opportunity to network with other students and liaise with qualified counselling professionals in conjunction with completing compulsory coursework.
