Virtual Open Day
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. We’re 1st in the North West for learning community (National Student Survey 2022 – Counselling, psychotherapy and occupational therapy).
On this page you’ll find course presentations from our Counselling and Psychotherapy academics, 360 tours of our facilities, videos and features to give you an insight into what it’s like to study Counselling and Psychotherapy at Edge Hill. The presentations and videos are available to watch on demand at any time.

There’s a real focus on personal development on the degree – you get to learn a lot about yourself. I think it’s amazing that your growth as a person is an integral part of the course.
