Course content

The Master of Science in Integrative Counselling and Coaching is a unique and ground-breaking course. It is the only postgraduate course in the UK, and possibly in the world, that offers integration of counselling and coaching practices.

This course provides professional training to those who aim to integrate various counselling approaches and coaching in their one-to-one practice.

Broadly speaking, counselling concerns itself with the resolution of internal conflicts and psychological changes. Coaching deals more with goal achievement and behavioural changes. For example, counselling may address underlining issues and reasons why someone had a drink problem, while coaching would deal with the habit itself. Although there is some overlap between these two approaches, they are not interchangeable. However, they can be complementary.

By covering both counselling and coaching training, this course is answering an ever-increasing need for integrative practitioners.
After completing the first two years of this course you will be able to apply for registered membership of BACP and eventual accreditation (as it is the case with all other training courses, the latter requires additional practice hours).
