Course content

The MA Counselling provides a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of the person-centred approach. You will also receive training in academic research techniques and have the opportunity to produce an extended piece of research on an area of personal interest.

In Year 1, you will study the module Person-Centred Counselling. Person-centred or client-centred counselling, developed by the late Carl Rogers and his associates during the past fifty years, is underpinned by core principles and attitudes which distinguish it from both the analytical and cognitive/behavioural traditions.

In Year 2, you will focus on the research element of the course and produce a dissertation on an area of personal interest. You will meet regularly to discuss your work with an academic supervisor.
