Why Pursue a Counsellor Career Path

As a counsellor, your work is rewarding, challenging, and never the same from day to day. You get the opportunity to support people through hard times and make a real difference when they most need it.

And there’s huge demand for counsellors and professionals with counselling skills. With increased interest in supporting mental health and increased government investment in this area, skilled counsellors can expect plenty of job opportunities in the years to come.

Industry Facts

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 important 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.
