Course summary

Course Summary

This course is particularly suited to students interested in undergoing professional training that will equip them for employment as a clinician in the NHS, the voluntary sector or in private practice. Our typical applicant is someone who already has experience in working in the mental health sector and understands about working with people.

We will encourage you to develop a flexible, reflective and critical approach to psychological and psychotherapeutic theory, research and practice, and will provide you with relevant experience to facilitate understanding of the different facets of work as a Counselling Psychologist and how this role is evolving in contemporary employment settings.

The course involves a variety of teaching methods, including lectures, seminars and workshops. You will be required to be on placement throughout your training and to have successfully completed 450 hours of one-to-one supervised clinical practice by the end of the course.

Training placements are crucial to your learning and the development of your clinical competence and confidence. Our programme has close links with a range of placement providers in East London and we provide you with high levels of support and guidance in securing clinical placements that contribute to your learning and professional development.

Your Future Career

This qualification allows you to work in clinical settings, including the NHS, health and social care, community services, organisational, forensic and third-sector settings. Most of our students secure jobs before, or as soon as, they complete their doctoral training. The course allows you to apply for paid work as a trainee counselling psychologist as you continue to work towards full Chartered Counselling Psychologist status and registration with the HCPC.

You will be eligible to apply for registration with the HCPC and for chartered status with the BPS once you have fulfilled all the requirements of the Doctorate.

Our dedicated academic team has many years of experience of working within the NHS and the third sector. All contribute to the research which has earned UEL’s School of Psychology such a high reputation in recent years and, crucially, all are actively working in clinical settings.

We pride ourselves on enabling our students to gain the necessary academic and professional knowledge and competences that help them become effective, competent, resourceful, safe and ethical practitioners, who can offer high-quality psychological services & are well-placed to achieve their professional goals and aspirations in the current job market.
