A recent survey commissioned by a company revealed that only 4.7% of the people who completed the course in the past year were still employed.
The survey also found that one in four of those who had completed the courses were out of work in the same year.
“In my view, the industry is losing people and there are too many people who are not getting jobs,” said Tim Kallen, managing director at Career Education and Career Support, a firm based in Sydney that runs some of the most popular counselling courses.
“The thing about a counsellor is they can teach you a lot of things that you would never have learned through your career.”
“What they are really good at is teaching you to become a better person.”
There’s a whole world of difference between being a better counsellOR and being a counselling person.
It’s not about being better or worse, it’s about how you use that skill and how you learn it.”‘
In some cases, it may be the first time that they have ever spoken with a counseller. “
They are the ones who are going to know the best strategies and the most effective ways to use it.”

The average number of clients enrolled in counselling courses is less than 20,000 per year, according to Career Education.
“I think it’s the most important thing we can do in the counselling industry,” said Ms MacKay.
“Because the majority of people that are going into counselling are not in the best shape and that’s the biggest reason why they’re not going to be successful in the workplace.”
We are losing people because they are just not having the support that they need.
“The number of people who have quit their jobs has increased by 12% in the last 12 months, according the Australian Bureau of Statistics, to 9.6 million in 2016.
And many people are struggling to keep up with their payments, especially if they are on disability support.
In the latest data from the Australian Government, the average monthly payment for a person who had an employment related disability was $1,200, compared with $1.50 for those with a disability related illness.
“It’s the stigma around disability and mental health that is still the biggest barrier for many people to getting employment and finding a job.” “
People are still in denial about what is going on,” Ms MacKays chief executive said.

She added that there were also a lot more people quitting their jobs than there were hiring.
“We have more people who quit their job than we have people who want to work.”
It’s a trend that has been echoed by many other industries, with the number of self-employed people dropping by 14% between 2012 and 2016, according StatsCan.
But a report by the Workplace Safety Commission found that there was a lack of data on the number and type of injuries experienced by those employed.
And the commission recommended that the government provide a national database of workplace injuries.
“As an employer, you have a duty of care to ensure that employees are well taken care of,” Ms Kalles said.
