About Us

What makes aifc different?

aifc takes a comprehensive and balanced approach to counselling training that integrates psychology, theology and spirituality. Theology helps us know and grow in God’s ways and increases our understanding of our need for Him. Psychology helps generate an awareness of self, and spirituality involves developing your healing relationship.

Is it for me?

aifc courses are for adults over 18 years of age. Classroom schedules are designed to cause minimal disruption to your normal occupation. You may wish to attend regular classes on campus ( 2 days/week over a 12 month period) or perhaps you would prefer our seminar program. This program involves 13 days of face to face study per year complimented with home/group work and online learning. If you can’t attend any face to face classes you may prefer our online options.     

The flexibility of aifc study options provides you with Full-Time, Part-Time and an Online Supported Mode Program allowing you to study with aifc from anywhere.
