The DPsych programme aims to develop highly-skilled, well-rounded, self-aware psychological practitioners and researchers who will make a valuable contribution to the profession, both inside and outside the consulting room. Read more
The DPsych programme aims to develop highly-skilled, well-rounded, self-aware psychological practitioners and researchers who will make a valuable contribution to the profession, both inside and outside the consulting room.

A successful graduate of the DPsych meets the standards and competencies set by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS), and is eligible for registration and chartership with those bodies.

The DPsych programme is committed to producing practitioner psychologists who are well prepared to meet the needs of each client and to utilise individualised formulation and intervention, while never losing sight of the relationship at the core of the endeavour.

To support this, the DPsych gives training in three approaches to therapy: existential-phenomenological, cognitive-behavioural, and psychodynamic. The principal model of the programme is existential-phenomenological psychotherapy, one of the foundational influences in the profession of counselling psychology. Existential-phenomenological approaches and counselling psychology emphasise subjective, lived experience; recognise the importance of dialogue; and take a holistic, relational view of human nature and of psychological difficulties. Irrespective of the modality employed, we encourage and develop a “pervasive existential sensibility” in our trainees’ therapeutic work.

This programme is validated by the Open University, UK. In January 2016, a redesigned DPsych was validated by the OU and accredited by the BPS for a five-year period.

Why should I choose this programme?

Counselling psychology trainees at Regent’s have the opportunity to work towards a professional qualification with a highly experienced programme team who are collegial, passionate about the profession, and who treat trainees as prospective professionals.

Trainees benefit from individual mentorship and support with a dedicated personal tutor; from the chance to undertake teaching and leadership in the third year; from strong research support from both supervisors and the curriculum; and from a newly enhanced course structure that affords more time in the second and third years for research and placement activities. Special attention is given to specialisation and employability, and the training aims to prepare its graduates to work anywhere, from private practice to the NHS to specialised settings. Finally, the training takes place on one of the most beautiful university campuses in London, in the heart of Regent’s Park.

At the January 2016 accreditation visit, the British Psychological Society awarded the programme four commendations and no conditions, a rare circumstance and testament to the strength of the DPsych programme. The BPS panel commended the programme for epitomising the profession by putting the trainee and collaboration and its heart. The programme additionally received commendations for the creative and effective teaching and learning methods employed by the team; the diverse and well-thought-through ways in which competencies are assessed; and the support the programme enjoys from the University’s senior management team.
