Course summary

At Keele University, we’re proud to be consistently ranked in the Top 3 UK universities for student satisfaction, which is testimony to the safe, supportive and welcoming campus we hope you’ll soon call home. The course is accredited by the British Psychology Society. Please note the course is not a practising qualification but provides the first steps towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist or Counselling Psychologist. It will help students meet the entry requirements for the MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy at Keele or elsewhere.Psychology explores human thought, feelings and behaviour, and has strong links with counselling, which adds specific theories about mental health and distress, and development of helping skills. You will gain an understanding of people as well as recognising the complexities that underlie our identities, social relations, emotions and the decisions that we make.This course broadly follows the Single Honours Psychology modular structure with additional modules focusing on counselling theories, skills and personal development, delivered by School of Psychology staff with expertise in Counselling and Counselling Psychology.The psychological content of the course will develop your critical thinking and research skills with an emphasis on how psychology impacts on everyday life. You will learn how to design and conduct your own psychological studies in our well-equipped labs using a range of quantitative and qualitative techniques. Our students graduate ready to use their psychology skills and knowledge to make a real difference. The Counselling element of the course guides you in exploring concepts and debates in counselling, as well as developing practical skills in effective listening, communication, self-reflection and the theory of person-centred counselling.With further training and study, these career routes could include working as a counsellor (either employed or self-employed), psychotherapist, or as a clinical, counselling, educational, forensic, occupational or sports psychologist.
