Course content

Accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), this course will enable you to become a professional counsellor or psychotherapist. It will help you work towards practitioner accreditation with the BACP and could help you develop a specialist role within your current occupation.

You will gain an understanding of relational theory and practice and will learn how to apply your therapeutic counselling and psychotherapy skills with clients. Through clinical practice, you will identify your strengths and areas for development, ensuring you become a capable and self-reflective practitioner.

You will also undertake 20 hours of personal counselling from a network of professional counsellors approved by the University. This will provide you with first-hand experience as a client, and you will be able to link this insight back to your theoretical grounding and research.
