One of my firends is a consellor, too, and became one with the main purpose of being able to emigrate to OZ. However, from what I gather Medicare changed the funding arrangements and now doesn't pay for counselling and therefore counsellors are no longer in great demand or on the 'Wanted List'. He thinks, one would have to have a degree in psychology now to emigrate uing that particulate field of expertise. This is only second hand info, though and if anyone know differently I'll stand corrected.
