A forward looking, forward thinking professional area with solid growth prospects
The growing area of rehabilitation counselling is highly interdisciplinary, challenging and rewarding. A counsellor can play a key role working with individuals experiencing injury, disability or social disadvantage to reach their occupational, personal and social participation goals.
A counsellor will assess and work with an individual’s strengths and capabilities in a coordinated rehabilitation plan, guiding necessary changes in their client and if required, their environment.
