The job prospects for counsellors has reached a new all-time high. Over the past five years employment in this sector increased by 57.1% to 30 000 (compared to a growth of 10.9% for all occupations). More than half of workers (64.5%) are employed full-time. Employment growth over the next five years is expected to grow very strongly (3.2% per annum compared to 1.8% for all occupations).
