If you are called to serve others through healing hearts, minds and relationships, Laidlaw College’s School of Social Practice offers a uniquely integrated approach to counselling.

Our three-year Bachelor of Counselling (BCouns) degree prepares you to become a registered counsellor with either the NZ Association of Counsellors or the NZ Christian Counsellors Association. With Christian thought and practice integrated throughout, and with a uniquely immersive mix of classroom, practicum, group and mentored learning, the BCouns is for those who want to build a career in counselling, or those who want to develop lifelong skills for working with people.
