We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Counselling involve advanced study of therapy techniques aimed at improving individuals’ mental health. When you’ve finished an accredited Masters in Counselling, you’ll be able to apply to become a registered counsellor or psychotherapist.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Counselling Psychology and Therapeutic Counselling, while entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Social Science or Psychology. Counselling programmes come in a variety of forms, from MScs to Postgraduate Diplomas and Postgraduate Certificates.
As a qualified counsellor, you’ll be providing a vital – and sometimes life-saving – service. You’ll be able to work in a range of industries and contexts, and could find yourself employed within coaching and business frameworks as well as in healthcare and therapeutic settings.
These courses examine several forms of professional counselling, including online and distance counselling; child and adolescent counselling; and individual, couples and group counselling. You may wish to specialise in a particular kind of therapeutic technique, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), art therapy or transactional analysis (TA).
Careers commonly include roles in a clinical or healthcare setting such as a hospital or private counselling service. Alternatively, you could work in social welfare with a charity or education institution, or a business-oriented role in a human resources department.
