Course summary


Explore the person-centred therapeutic process, brief interventions, and different approaches to psychotherapy. Practise core psychological skills, from therapeutic interventions to applied research and consultation. And, reflect on practitioner resilience and self-care.

On this course you’ll explore the theories behind therapeutic methods related to promoting psychological wellbeing, and develop practical research skills.

You’ll study topics including the principles of therapeutic approaches (such as developing positive therapeutic relationships with clients and person-centred care), therapeutic strategies of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), including cognitive restructuring, and brief interventions, such as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and motivational interviewing.

In skills sessions, you’ll complete role plays and scenario-based tasks to practise core therapeutic techniques, such as reflecting, identifying internal/external frames of reference, and Socratic questioning.

You’ll also reflect on practitioner wellbeing and development. Some of the themes you’ll consider include boundaries and safe practices, privilege and social responsibility, and core values and beliefs.

We’ll help you to develop your awareness of self-care through experiential learning groups based on your experiences and you’ll complete a practitioner log and reflective diary, too.

You’ll have the opportunity to complete a service related dissertation, connecting theory and practice, influencing service design and delivery for statutory and third sector organisations or people with particular vulnerabilities.

At Manchester Met, our teaching team includes practitioner psychologists (clinical, counselling, health and sports) with experience in working in NHS and private settings in the UK and internationally.


With further postgraduate training through a professional doctorate or practitioner training with an accrediting professional body (e.g. BPS, BACP), you could develop a career in psychological therapies. We offer a comprehensive theoretical foundation upon which to build your professional skills and practitioner registration. You could go into clinical psychology, counselling or psychotherapy, or a psychological wellbeing practitioner, in the NHS or in private practice.
