About Master of Psychotherapy and Counselling at Western Sydney University

Through counselling and psychotherapy, people gain self-understanding, expand interpersonal capacities and become capable of healthy change.

This course brings together theory and practice, and gives you the tools to make a meaningful, real-life impact in the fields of psychotherapy and counselling. You will also enjoy the close guidance of Western's highly experienced clinical practitioners and internationally recognised psychotherapy educators.

A good listener. A great help

Western's Master of Psychotherapy and Counselling is designed to expand and refine your capacity to listen deeply and provide in-depth support to people struggling with emotional issues and life difficulties.

This is a deeply humanistic program in which you will explore the role of the human psyche and learn how your own life experiences and perspectives can be used to help others achieve their personal and mental-health goals. Your training will also include an emphasis on the creation of the therapist and the therapeutic environment for the client.

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.

    Christine Yujian Tang - China, Master of Creative Industries

    Testimonial from Christine Yujian Tang - China, Master of Creative Industries, student at Western Sydney University

    Not only did I get a feeling of what the industry, the media, the news and journalism is like, I got a taste of what that operating system is like - how to present in front of an audience and how to film it.

    Isam Al-Handola - Iraq, Master of Public Health

    Testimonial from Isam Al-Handola - Iraq, Master of Public Health, student at Western Sydney University

    I feel that I have made the best choice - especially because of the technology-infused learning. I love the way the course is taught using a multimedia approach, and that it has access to a whole online library to read material for tutorials and research assignments.
