Course summary

Welsh Government policy enshrines the provision of counselling in schools, responding to this challenge - and to the demand for greater professionalisation of counselling and psychotherapy in Britain – Wrexham Glyndŵr University continues to offer this popular courses. The initial diploma is aimed at providing you with a general professional qualification in counselling. This course may help your career by adding valuable understanding and skills to anyone working in related professions. Our courses are grounded in the person-centred approach to give you the ability to provide empathic, authentic relationships which will develop effective therapeutic interaction. The delivery and content of the courses are based on a contemporary understanding of the theory and practice of Carl Rogers and the contributions of other theorists within this therapeutic modality. These include but are not limited to Gendlin, Mearns & Thorne, Warner, Greenberg, Rice & Elliott. In addition, play and expressive therapy are covered in light of person-centred practice and theory, criticisms are considered, and attention is paid to research informed current developments. There are several areas that are important to becoming a competent counsellor/psychotherapist. These are all addressed within the course and include: Emphasis on the personal development, self-awareness and psychological maturity of the trainee; developing the ability to write and practice reflectively, developing the ability to apply theory in practice; understanding and applying ethical principles in your work; and professionalism in practice.
