Counselling is an activity and profession that provides emotional support for people experiencing problems in their lives. Studying counselling at a post-graduate level involves developing theoretical understandings, practical skills and a high level of personal awareness and resilience.

The first year of this programme begins with an introduction to counselling and practical training in the application of helping interventions, so from the outset you are engaged in skills learning. This foundation year provides counselling skills, and the experience needed to undertake a practice placement.

The subsequent two years involve a combination of teaching in theory, research, practice and professional issues, and self-development, all of which are directly linked to practice placement.

This part-time programme requires one day per week attendance.

This programme includes three exit points, these are
-End of first year: Postgraduate Certificate in Counselling Skills
-End of second year: Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling Studies
-End of third year: Masters (MSc) in Counselling

Why choose this course?

This is currently the only UK programme that provides comprehensive training in the Pluralistic framework for counselling and psychotherapy integration. A key benefit of this approach is that you will train in a wide range of theories and interventions, and learn how best to adapt your counselling approach to the needs of your clients.

Abertay University has a long tradition of providing training in counselling and counselling skills. Our counselling teaching staff are respected within the profession as leaders in their field, and in coming here you will join a vibrant community of practitioners of past and current students.

We have a strong research orientation, and the Tayside counselling research centre is based on campus. There are opportunities for you to be involved in projects that are influencing and developing the role and effectiveness of counselling interventions in modern society.

As a postgraduate student you are part of our Graduate School, a dedicated facility specially designed to promote integration and inculcation of interdisciplinary working in our next generation of researchers.

What you study

The course offers a comprehensive selection of topics on talking therapies, interventions and professional practice.

The core areas include:
-The pluralistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy
-A range of theoretical approaches to counselling, such as Person Centred and Experiential, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis, Existential, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies
-Practice skills in working with clients, and professional skills for working in counselling contexts
-Personal development and self-awareness
-Evidence-based practice and research methods
-Ethical and professional issues in counselling

These core areas are covered in increasing depth over the three years of the programme. In addition you will have the opportunity to take part in workshops to introduce and develop your understanding of mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety, addictions, and eating disorders, along with specific approaches such as solution-focussed therapies, and mindfulness.

In combination with the one day a week attendance on campus, in year 2 and 3 you will take a placement as a counsellor as an essential part of your professional training.

Assessment is through a range of methods including case-studies, theory essays, literature reviews, practice observations, and reflective accounts, along with reports from supervisors and practice placement.

Assessment tasks are integrated in to the course and spread through the three years.

Formative assessment is ongoing and the programme team provide feedback on practice skills and activities in class.
