This course is particularly suited to students interested in undergoing professional training that will equip them for employment as a clinician in the NHS, the voluntary sector or in private practice.
Our typical applicant is someone who already has experience in working in the mental health sector and understands about working with people.
We will encourage you to develop a flexible, reflective and critical approach to counselling theory, research and practice, and will provide relevant experience to facilitate understanding of the different facets of work as a Counselling Psychologist and how this role is evolving in contemporary employment settings.
The course involves a variety of teaching methods, including lectures, seminars and workshops. You will be required to be on placement throughout your training and to have successfully completed 450 hours of one-to-one supervised clinical practice by the end of the course.
Training placements are crucial to your learning and the development of your clinical competence and confidence, so we aim to enhance your student experience by liaising regularly with your placement managers and supervisors.
