Course summary

Do you want to continue your training to become a psychodynamic counsellor or extend the age-range of clients with whom you can work? If so, our 2-year Psychodynamic Counselling course may be for you. You will need to have completed a full counselling diploma from another institution or our FdA/BA Therapeutic Communication and Therapeutic Organisations (TCTO) A requirement of the course is that you are in personal therapy or counselling on a weekly basis.

Taught at our Colchester Campus, this course offers a professional qualification to work psychodynamically either with adults, or with children and adolescents. There are two streams for the different age-ranges but much of the course is taught jointly. You will gain a thorough theoretical and practical training, including a supervised placement, enabling you to qualify as a psychodynamic counsellor.

Your future

Our graduates go on to several different destinations, including further study and training in psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, or psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

Many of our students are already professionals, clinical and non-clinical, so return to their existing fields, either in jobs or further training, and use study with us to deepen their understanding of their work.
