Course summary

This MSc programme in Counselling and Psychotherapy aims to equip students with the knowledge and expertise to become professional person-centred/humanistic counsellors. The course integrates students’ counselling skills practice with academic study of counselling related theory at Masters level and facilitates student’s personal and professional development, as well as offering them a grounding in research methodology. The course is founded on a person-centred view of personhood and person-centred ways of being and the core training offered by the programme is in the person-centred approach. We accept the overwhelming evidence of the theorists that the major factor in helping human beings change in a desired positive direction is a relationship in which they feel safe, valued and challenged.

Assessment

With the exception of a multiple-choice questionnaire classroom test, all modules are assessed on the basis of coursework. There is a dissertation of 20, 000 words which is a piece of independent research on a counselling related topic of the student’s own choice.

Careers

Keele counselling students go on to work in a wide range of counselling and mental health fields in the UK and internationally as well as progressing on to further study, research or specialist training.
