Psychotherapy MSc

Course Description

Our new Psychotherapy MSc is under development and, subject to final university approval in April 2012, we will recruit the first students in the autumn.

It replaces the current Psychotherapeutic Counselling MA which has provided graduates from both postgraduate diplomas in therapeutic counselling with the opportunity to further their professional training.
The new MSc is being designed to meet the requirements of the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy for the title psychotherapist.

The proposed course will involve two years of study during which time students will have the opportunity to deepen and broaden their chosen theoretical base in practice as well as develop ways of working with complex presentations of human distress. They will also develop skills in research design and implementation specific to the professions of psychotherapy. Students will need to be in therapeutic practice under supervision and attend weekly personal psychotherapy. Modules will include:
- Psychotherapy Practice and Models of Change
- Systemic Interventions: theory and principles
- Complex Presentations in Psychotherapy
- Dissertation module
- CBT and the Relational Paradigm.

Application forms are available from the university website (or you can apply online further down this page) and interviews will be offered in order of application. Please note that places can only be offered following the successful validation of the course.

If you wish to be placed on a mailing list to be kept informed of these developments please email Kath O'Malley on .
