Course summary

The Master of Psychotherapy and Counselling (MPsy) is a four-year comprehensive training route for degree-entry applicants who wish to become a practising psychotherapist or counsellor. We educate in the theory, research, and practice of psychotherapy and counselling, complementing professional training in psychotherapy and counselling with the academic rigour of a degree. The degree is an integrated master's degree, which means that an undergraduate degree is combined with a final master's year, leading to a master's level qualification.With consideration to theory, there are a variety of approaches to psychotherapy and counselling that are based on different theoretical perspectives of behaviour change. The degree covers a variety of these theoretical perspectives (person-centred, cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic, existential, strengths-based), focusing on one perspective in depth in the final year. With consideration to research, psychotherapy and counselling is an evidence-based profession. Teaching is evidence-based, and students learn how to interpret, critique, and apply research. They also learn how to conduct research in the context of psychotherapy and counselling. With consideration to practice, students learn, practice, and develop the skills they need to become competent, ethical, reflective, self-aware, and effective as psychotherapists and counsellors. They learn about the roles of psychotherapists and counsellors in a variety of professional settings, and develop the underpinning knowledge, understanding, and skills required for these roles. Subject to passing a ‘Readiness to Practice’ assessment, they also complete a 100-hour, integrated placement that involves providing supervised counselling to clients.
