The MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy provides an innovative approach to psychotherapeutic practice that enables you to learn about three different psychotherapeutic approaches; person-centered, attachment theory, and cognitive behavior psychotherapy. A trans-theoretical model is used to provide a framework to integrate these theories to acknowledge the complexities of human problems in a meaningful way.

Past graduates have been employed in a wide variety of counselling settings such as general practice, health and social services, the police, accident and emergency services, HR, education, voluntary organisations and private practice. Students can progress into the MSc after successful completion of the PgCert and PgDip.
