New hori­zons for Lisa

Central and North Burnett Times - - AROUND TOWN -

FAM­I­LIES will ben­e­fit from the skills and knowl­edge of Lisa Jensen.

The Gayn­dah woman has grad­u­ated with an Ad­vanced Diploma of Coun­selling and Fam­ily Ther­apy.

The cer­e­mony took place at Hills Church in Bris­bane on May 10, with fam­ily and friends join­ing Ms Jensen to cel­e­brate the achieve­ment.

Now fully qual­i­fied, she will of­fer pri­vate gen­eral coun­selling to the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett area.

Ms Jensen will study for a Vo­ca­tional Grad­u­ate Cer­tifi­cate which she is hop­ing to com­plete by the end of the year.

“I am not sure what I plan to do with the de­gree yet, how­ever I am en­joy­ing the jour­ney and will con­tinue to coun­sel pri­vately while I wait for a new op­por­tu­nity to present it­self,” she said.

“Build­ing on the skills and knowl­edge gained through the two-year Ad­vanced of Coun­selling and Fam­ily Ther­apy, the Vo­ca­tional Grad­u­ate Cer­tifi­cate is a post-grad­u­ate in­tern­ship which re­quires the achieve­ment of two hun­dred hours practicum.

“This qual­i­fi­ca­tion will al­low me to work as a self-em­ployed pro­fes­sional coun­sel­lor or fam­ily ther­a­pist.”
