Our Master’s course provides professional education for developing particular qualities in relationship with others, enabling individuals to discover their own resources for a more creative, optimistic and autonomous way of being that is key to counselling.

Our Clinical Counselling course builds on the University’s reputation of offering quality professional training in counselling for a number of years. The course is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and our MA is one of a few accredited MA courses in a university setting in the country.

The course reflects the ethos of the person-centred approach to counselling, although there is the opportunity to explore other established approaches.
