Systemic Counselling (PGCert)

Course Description

Systemic approaches to psychotherapy and family therapy have been the cornerstone of The Family Institute’s clinical practice, teaching and research since 1967. The Institute was the first centre in the UK to develop these approaches to problems in living. Forty years on, progress in family therapy has occurred at a rapid pace. The application of systems thinking and practice in health and social care contexts has grown considerably. It has, therefore, become essential to ensure the highest standards of practice, training and qualification in applying systemic approaches effectively within these fields.

This course will develop knowledge and skills that you can apply to your area of practice. It is ideal if you want to enhance your existing expertise, gain new skills for career development or a career change, or address CPD aspects of professional qualifications. The Family Institute attracts a wide range of professionals to its courses, offering the added opportunity of shared learning between health and social care professionals from diverse backgrounds.

Our course and its components are also pre-requisites for further clinical training in psychotherapy or counselling, and aspects of this course may be required if you want to work in various therapeutic contexts. People undertaking counselling psychology training have used this course as part of their portfolio submission. This award also includes the curriculum for foundation and intermediate level training. As such, it satisfies the first two years of a four-year postgraduate training programme leading to professional qualification as a UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) Registered Family and Systemic Psychotherapist.
