Counselling and Psychotherapy

Listen, empathise and provide support that shapes lives. We’ve designed our BA for students who already know they want to qualify as a therapist. And our BSc opens up wider opportunities by diving into the political and social context of counselling.

We’ll help you explore theories, policies and practice, and you’ll also spend time testing your abilities. On our BA you’ll have the chance to offer therapy sessions to real clients. Whatever your ambition, you’ll be ready to make a difference in a variety of settings, from hospices to charities, prisons to private healthcare.

On both our courses, we financially support individual therapy.

We have an extensive network giving our students plenty of placement opportunities.

Our graduates stand out to employers. Whatever your ambition, you’ll be ready to work across a variety of settings.
