Course summary

The **BA (Hons) Counselling, Mental Health and Wellbeing** degree is designed to offer students the opportunity to learn about a wide range of theories within counselling, whilst enhancing employability in the field of mental health.**Why study this course?**Students on the BA (Hons) Counselling, Mental Health and Wellbeing degree gain an in-depth understanding of counselling theory and its application, along with the acquisition of a range of communication skills.Whilst it must be emphasised that this course does not provide a professional counselling training, and that graduates will not be qualified as counsellors, it does provide an excellent basis for postgraduate training as a counsellor or psychotherapist.Students will develop their counselling knowledge and skills by studying a module on each of the main counselling approaches used in the UK: Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), alongside an introductory and then intermediate counselling skills module. The programme will develop graduates who are familiar with and able to critically analyse concepts around professional judgement and risk in working ethically with others.Students will develop key transferable skills necessary for employment including: the exercise of initiative and personal responsibility, decision-making in complex and unpredictable contexts, and the learning ability needed to undertake appropriate further training of a professional within the mental health profession or equivalent.
