We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Psychotherapy equip postgraduates with the skills to use therapeutic psychological methods to rehabilitate individuals and improve their mental health.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Counselling, Art Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy and Integrative Psychotherapy. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant Psychology discipline.
There are over a thousand different therapeutic techniques within the field of Psychotherapy. Depending on your interests, you may specialise in any number of traditional and non-traditional techniques, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, dance and art psychotherapy, and even spiritual techniques like meditation.
Courses typically cover ways of improving difficult behaviours, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts and emotions, as well as helping relationships and social skills. Certain psychotherapies are aimed specifically at treating diagnosed mental disorders.
You will usually explore different approaches to psychotherapy through a placement aimed at increasing your vocational abilities, including one-on-one sessions and working with couples and groups.
Psychotherapists may be self-employed, working within private practice, or find employment of behalf of local government to provide public services. Healthcare settings include homes, hospitals and community centres.
