IKON is a unique organisation culturally, with a long and strong focus on the cultivation of professionals that support mental health and the wellbeing of others.

All of our teaching is based on our philosophy of a grounded, functional and evidence-based humanism and free intellectual enquiry. What is unique about our educational programs and the way you will learn is that you will engage not just with the theory and knowledge related to your studies but you will also learn through personal experience – practicing clinical methodologies you will bring to your professional work following graduation. 

To support you in this, and your own personal journey that is an integral part of being an IKON student, we will ensure that your lecturers, tutors and other staff are readily available to you. You will also participate in counselling and therapy sessions as a client and as a student.

IKON’s unique teaching and learning approach aims to produce graduates who are enabled to continually develop their own potential, and whose skills, knowledge and therapeutic client-centered practice contribute to the creation of an international community of people and practitioners committed to social change, community building and individual healing.

IKON is both a vocational education and a higher education institution of which there are only around 25 in Australia. We deliver nationally accredited qualifications in all capital cities across the fields of counselling and psychotherapy, creative arts therapies, youth work and community services.

IKON is also unique in being an organisation that delivers both national training package qualifications whilst having extensive experience in the development and accreditation of unique, specialised qualifications.

To our future IKON Students, we wish you all the very best with your learning journey and applaud you for being someone who is committed to helping others.

Name: Damian Oklobdzija

Course: Bachelor of Integrative Psychotherapy

I chose IKON as I was looking for something more than the impersonal learning environment common to larger institutions. I wanted to be immersed in a learning environment that was both interactive and challenging.

I found that and more at IKON. It has been a unique opportunity to study at an institution that does not simply teach us what to think, but also how to think. They provide a comprehensive integrative approach to working with individuals that also places a large importance on the relationship in therapy, delivered by trainers who are both passionate, and currently working in their respective fields. This has been invaluable for receiving hands-on knowledge.  

This degree is demanding, yet incredibly rewarding. I feel that I will be well prepared to move into the workforce or private practice upon finishing my studies with IKON.
