Course Summary

Overview

This programme provides professional training that leads to eligibility for registration as a counselling psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and chartered status with the British Psychological Society (BPS).

This programme is at the leading edge of international developments in counselling psychology practice, research, and theory; and brings together contemporary understandings from person-centred psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioural models of therapy. There is a strong emphasis on your identity and employability as a practitioner psychologist, including skills in assessment and formulation, leadership, service evaluation, psychological testing, qualitative and quantitative research methods. The programme attracts a diverse group of trainees who have gained relevant experience in fields such as counselling and psychotherapy, research and academia, and the NHS, and who are passionate about becoming counselling psychologists.

The course is based on a pluralistic relational philosophy that values diversity and promotes individual empowerment and social change. This means that we respect and value a wide range of approaches to psychological intervention and research, view relationships as central to wellbeing, and seek to enable trainees to make a positive difference both at an individual and social level through their clinical and research work.

Career Options

As an HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist you will be qualified to work in a range of settings, including the NHS, the voluntary sector and private practice. As well as providing psychotherapeutic interventions, your work may include providing clinical supervision, service management, teaching, research, and consultancy.

Modules

The aim of this module is to introduce trainees to person-centred psychology - theory, practice, research, and philosophical underpinnings. The module will help trainees to develop a critical understanding of person-centred and experiential therapies, as well as an appreciation of the relevance of these models of therapy to their identities and practice as counselling psychologists. Within the broader relational pluralistic philosophy of the programme, this module thus helps trainees begin to critically explore a range of psychological models and possible approaches to therapeutic intervention, and to begin to think about links between empirical evidence, theory and practice.
