We are aware that there are many Psychology Graduates in South Africa who would love to use their passion and register with a professional counselling body, but might not be aware of their options. Due to the cost and limited numbers of Honours/Masters spaces many give up on their dream to serve in the space they are passionate about. We support Psychology Graduates by providing information, preparation and practical and supervision hours which leads to eligibility in registering as a counsellor with the Association of Holistic Counsellors (ASCHP) & Council for Counsellors in South Africa (CCSA).
We are proud to offer this initiative aimed at the further development of Psychology Graduates and embedding the practical side of counselling via mentorship, hands on learning, case studies and role play. Most professional bodies require at least 100 counselling hours as a minimum requirement for consideration. Your designation determines your scope of practice and there is a need for both theoretical knowledge, and practical experience and immersion. The more experience you have, the better you will be able to serve your clients. Although volunteer hours is one way to do this, there is great benefit in having feedback and guidance from a counsellor and mentor, at any stage of your counselling journey.
