Counselling and psychotherapy

Our well-established postgraduate diplomas provide professional training and education in counselling. Applicants can choose to follow a programme in either humanistic or psychodynamic therapeutic counselling. Successful completion will provide the basis for professional accreditation with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy when combined with a period of post-qualifying supervised practice.

We also offer an MSc in Psychotherapy which provides the opportunity to deepen and broaden knowledge in this area and is intended for those who seek to make psychotherapeutic work their primary activity.
