Postgraduate Counselling and Psychotherapy

Our ground-breaking Masters degree enables you to discover contemporary creative approaches to counselling and psychotherapy.

Combining skills, placements and person-centred experiences across the lifespan, the MSc has been designed in collaboration with, and is approved by, the UK Association of Humanistic Psychology Practitioners (UKAHPP), a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

The programme integrates creatives and expressive arts methods, including the sequential use of drawing, painting, guided imagery, movement, drama, writing, poetry and sculpture, to immerse you in the therapeutic process. You will benefit from a financial contribution of up to £1,200 towards the cost of personal therapy and clinical supervision.

On completion of the programme, and subject to meeting the published criteria, you will have the skills and expertise required to enter practice as a psychotherapist.
