Course content

The PG Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Coaching offers professional training for those who aim to integrate various counselling approaches and coaching in their one-to-one practice.

Broadly speaking, counselling concerns itself with the resolution of internal conflicts and psychological changes. Coaching deals more with goal achievement and behavioural changes that can be measured and perceived.

For example, counselling would deal with the reasons why someone had a drink problem, while coaching would deal with the habit itself.

Although there is some overlap between these two approaches, they are not interchangeable. However, they can be complementary.

This course is answering an urgent need that reflects a general trend towards more open-minded, integrative practice.

You can apply to do the course with a wide range of degrees.

The first year is taken up with counselling training. The second year offers coaching training and an introduction to a specific model of integration, Personal Consultancy.

There is then the option for students to continue onto a third year to complete a full MSc. This third year consists of a module on research methods and dissertation.

As a successful graduate you will be able to apply for membership of and eventual accreditation by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This would require additional practice hours.
