Graduate Diploma – Christian Counselling

My Christian counsellor encouraged me to consider studying with aifc. A defining moment post study has been stepping into an office where I was the one counselling others! My life has come full-circle.


Diploma – Christian Counselling

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.
