Making a difference!

The Diploma of Counselling course we're running in Longreach in conjunction with Jigsaw Consulting has generated a lot of interest, with 10 people on their way to becoming qualified counsellors.  Interest has been so strong that dates are being set to provide the course next year as well.

If you are interested in learning the skills to help people deal with the challenges in their lives, and in having the formal qualification as well (Diploma of Counselling (CHC51712)), call 1300 943 438 or go to http://www.jigsaw.edu.au
