It takes emotional maturity, good people skills and a strong sense of self to become a mental health & wellness counsellor. In the first year of studies students will learn and apply Indigenous and Western-based holistic approaches to healing and addictions counselling.

An instructor with real world experience will provide training in:

  • Interpersonal communication
  • Youth care
  • Indigenous healing
  • Therapy for families
  • Recovery models
  • Modern technologies

There are two 4 week field placements included, out of town travel with extended stays may be required.

Accepted applicants will be required to provide:

  • Evidence of a Vulnerable Sector Check
