Graduate Diploma Psychodynamic Counselling

Course Description

Are you interested in how people develop and how they relate to each other, both personally and in organisations? Do you want to make a start on pursuing a training to work therapeutically with children and adolescents/adults?

Taught at our Colchester Campus, this course offers a grounding in psychodynamic theory and its applications. It can be pursued in its own right if you're interested in the psychodynamic approach but also constitutes the first year of our Grad Dip/MA training in Psychodynamic Counselling (if you have taken our FdA/BA Therapeutic Communication and Therapeutic Organisations (TCTO) course you can enter the MA direct).

If you're a psychology graduate, this course is the ideal next step if you wish to progress in the field of psychodynamic counselling. It also provides a route to a counselling and psychotherapy qualification for professionals, such as teachers, social workers, nurses and care workers.

It is not possible to study via distance learning on this course.
