The MSc Systemic Psychotherapy is a qualifying level course leading to eligibility for registration as a psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Family systems perspectives on theory and practice have been rapidly developing across a wide range of professional disciplines and practice contexts. If you work with adults, children, couples or within the family healthcare field, this is your opportunity to further your knowledge and develop the skills to practice therapeutically at a specialised and advanced level using systemic theoretical frameworks.

The MSc Systemic Psychotherapy course integrates taught clinical practice, theory, personal development and research. It forms Years Three to Four of The Family Institute’s psychotherapy training programme and builds on the Institute’s long experience of teaching psychotherapy. It is designed to meet UKCP, UK Association for Family Therapy and European training standards.
