Counselling and Psychotherapy

Counselling and psychotherapy can empower individuals, families and groups to accomplish goals and overcome challenges and difficulties in their lives.

On our Counselling and Psychotherapy degree you will work with actual clients and specialise in a person-centred experiential mode of therapy. On successful completion of the programme you will be professionally qualified as a counsellor and psychotherapist.

We also offer a non-qualifying degree in Critical Approaches to Counselling and Psychotherapy. This course introduces you to different models of counselling, enables you to participate in personal development activities, and develops the empathic skills and effective group work needed for employment in the helping professions.
