Course content

An intensive foundation in counselling for those who meet elements of counselling in their day-to-day work and who wish to enter this field professionally.

This programme is designed to provide an intensive foundation in counselling for those who meet elements of counselling in their day-to-day work and who wish to enter this field professionally, but lack sufficient experience and qualification to study at postgraduate diploma level. It is particularly suitable for those anticipating an application to our MA in Counselling.

The programme is taught by means of theoretical lectures, seminars, experiential workshops and group tutorials. You’ll study key theoretical concepts that inform the practice of humanistic and psychodynamic counselling and will identify the specific responsibilities and processes of the counselling alliance.
