If you want to support those experiencing mental health issues, or help to empower individuals, families and groups to accomplish goals and overcome challenges, our degrees in mental health and counselling are for you.
One in four people are affected by mental health problems so demand for skilled workers is high. Our programmes enable you to investigate contemporary approaches to mental health, gain expertise in child and adolescent mental health and wellbeing, train as a mental health nurse, or combine the study of mental health nursing with a second field of nursing or social work.
Alternatively, if you want to train to be a professionally qualified counsellor or psychotherapist, our counselling and psychotherapy degree gives you experience of working with actual clients and enables you to specialise in a person-centred experiential mode of therapy. We also offer a non-qualifying degree in critical approaches to counselling and psychotherapy.
