Maria Tan

I have encountered all sorts of mental health conditions, and I wanted to be in a better position to help people. By studying with aifc, I felt I would be best equipped to help those around me.

Rhonda Newton

I was at aifc open day, and my heart started beating really fast. I felt the presence of the holy spirit all over me, and I felt God was saying to me, “this is for you. I want you to do this.”

I like how at aifc there are like-minded people - all the students, and even the lecturers, their insights and having the biblical Christian foundation, that was what really drew me to it.

At aifc, our sole focus is to train and equip Christian Counsellors. More than just a counsellor, a Christian counsellor trusts in God and listens to His still small voice above all else.

It’s a big difference.
