What People Say?

I have always had a passion to see people’s lives changed. By studying counselling with aifc, I am equipped with the tools to facilitate that change. Studying via Distance Education has made it more accessible and affordable.

Many of the tutors I worked with during the time of my training had worked in the industry for many years; modelling to us strong counselling ethics and professional practice.

Vicky Robertson

I chose to do the aifc course as a step toward regaining personal direction and purpose. After almost a year, I have grown so much both on a personal level and in my relationships.

I’d definitely recommend aifc to any young person who is serious about their faith and wants to gain skills in helping people but is not sure what direction to take.

Over the past year Kye has completed his Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Family Therapy, all while applying the skills he’s learnt to assist students through a wide range of issues that they face.
