Course summary

This course allows you to study Counselling as a single honours degree, giving you an in-depth knowledge of the subject. This programme is aimed at students who wish to become Counselling practitioners. The programme adopts an integrative approach to counselling practice with an emphasis on embedding knowledge of integrating elements of the major theoretical approaches and counselling methodologies. Students will study and learn practical counselling skills in integrated counselling, including elements of humanistic, psychodynamic and Cognitive behavioural approaches. Course themes explore a range of counselling modalities, from more traditional talking therapies through to contemporary wellbeing and creative approaches. Students will engage in a diverse range of assessments, including written coursework, projects and practical counselling skills to demonstrate their learning. Specifically, our counselling course will offer you the opportunity to learn about a wealth of topics, such as self awareness, diversity, mental wellbeing and supporting clients facing a range of difficulties and issues. You are likely to explore different Counselling approaches, including psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive Behavioural therapy and mindfulness.There is no one-size-fits-all method of teaching at BGU – we shape our methods to suit each subject and each group, combining the best aspects of traditional university teaching with innovative techniques to promote student participation and interactivity. You will be taught in a variety of ways, from lectures, tutorials and seminars, to practical workshops, coursework and work-based placements. Small group seminars and workshops will provide you with an opportunity to review issues raised in lectures, and you will be expected to carry out independent study.We recognise that individuals come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, so we use a variety of assessment strategies on our courses. In Counselling, assessment is carried out using wide-range of approaches, including written assignments, coursework, essays and reports. You will carry out a small number of oral presentations, produce portfolios of research material, and undertake some practical assessments.Find out more: https://www.bishopg.ac.uk/course/coun/
