The Bachelor of Counselling (Hons.) aims to produce counsellors who are capable of providing the best counselling services to community members in need, including individuals, groups, couples, families, mentor and more. The Bachelor of Counselling program is the cornerstone of developing competent counsellors. The program is designed in accordance with the requirements of the Counsellors Act 1988. A competent counsellor is defined as a counsellor who meets the requirements of professional counselling training as prescribed by the Malaysian Board of Counsellors (LKM). This healthy development is in line with the government’s efforts to increase the number of trained counsellors as gazetted in the Counsellors Act 1998.


The program emphasizes counselling skills in individual and group sessions. The mastery of effective counselling skills enables the counsellor to perform better counselling services and thus provide a therapeutic effect to clients. The counselling service offered by the counsellor is based on the ethical principles of supporting services.
