Course content

This programme is ideal if you wish to qualify and pursue a career as a professional counsellor. It's designed to enable you to develop as a reflective counselling practitioner.

This is a psychodynamic course, aimed to give students solid theoretical foundations as well as basic counselling skills in psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy. It combines classical with contemporary psychodynamic theory and has a strong emphasis on issues relating to diversity and multiculturalism in theory and practice.

The programme offers a full-time mode of study extending over a minimum of two years and a part-time mode of study extending over a minimum of three years.

The curriculum focuses on psychodynamic, psychoanalytic and relational psychoanalytic perspectives. 

Through engagement in a range of learning contexts, including lectures, group seminars, therapeutic skills practice workshops, creative workshops, experiential group work, counselling placements, personal therapy, tutorials, independent study and dissertation supervision, students are supported in developing links between personal, clinical and theoretical knowledge.

Although the training is not an ‘accredited’ course of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), many students on the programme have chosen to complete the requirements stipulated by the BACP to become individually accredited clinical practitioners.
