• develop your understanding of the theoretical, social, cultural and ideological contexts in which your clients perceive, confront and manage problems • engage in in-depth consideration and analysis of major trends and orientations within integrative therapeutic work • adopt an informed and critical approach to the professionalisation of psychotherapeutics with particular reference to ethical issues • identify and use appropriate sources of supervision within counselling practice • develop skills in working from an integrative position with your clients • carry out a piece of research related to the theory and practice of integrative counselling practice (Master's stage).
I have found studying this course very stimulating and have gained a sound theoretical base from which to develop and gain confidence in my psychotherapeutic practice. In addition, I have appreciated the support and encouragement shown by the academic staff.
