Course content

* Please note that we are not able to sponsor students on this programme for a Tier 4 visa. *

This programme is ideal for those working in a helping profession who want to deepen their expertise. It is also suitable for those who want to start a career in counselling and need to take their first step.

It offers the chance to learn fundamental counselling skills or build on those you already have. You will be provided with an introduction to a broad range of approaches, and will have the chance to put your learning into practice. It is also the required first step for those who wish to proceed to a professional training and become a registered psychotherapist or counsellor.

You will acquire a broad conceptual background in psychotherapy and counselling theory. This involves studying a range of models, including:

  • Humanistic
  • Existential
  • Psychodynamic
  • Cognitive/behavioural

This is combined with the study of philosophical and spiritual perspectives from a range of different cultures.

You will be encouraged to critically engage with each of these theories and to develop your own approach. This will require you to question you own beliefs and assumptions, and to reflect on your personal emotional growth throughout the programme.

Alongside core counselling skills, you will develop communications skills and consider the various practical and ethical issues of working with clients.
