Course summary

Introduction

The approach to counselling at Degree Studies at West Suffolk College is integrative; an approach which has developed over the past half century, as a result of counselling outcomes research. The integrative model involves drawing on a range of theories which help us to understand how human beings develop, how personality and emotional challenges emerge, and how we act in the face of universal issues of our existence such as freedom, death, anxiety and guilt. Integration is also concerned with understanding why and how we are happy to show certain aspects of ourselves while hiding other parts. The aim of integrative counselling would then be to enable access to our whole self.

To achieve these objectives, the course is divided into three general areas; firstly, the professional - students will learn about law, ethics, boundaries and other aspects of professionalism. Secondly, students will learn and practice new skills, at first this will be in the classroom practising on other students, but later this will expand into working in a placement, counselling real clients. Thirdly, the theoretical concepts will be offered to students who will learn how to apply them to their counselling work. Lastly, students will engage in a process of self-awareness which will support their learning and development across the course.
