Course summary

Our Psychotherapeutic Counselling MSc will develop you into a reflexive counsellor who can work effectively with clients on a diverse range of issues.

As anxiety, stress and various associated conditions become increasingly common in today’s hectic world, more and more people are recognising the benefits of counselling.

Taking an integrative approach, this course will help you to develop a range of psychotherapeutic strategies and enable you to begin to call on your own life experiences – to help your clients better understand their feelings and overcome the challenges they face.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MSc Psychotherapeutic Counselling.

Teaching

Teaching includes formal lectures, small and large group work, triads, discussions, guided reading, video presentations, demonstrations and counselling sessions. During the training, you’ll take on the role of both counsellor and client, and explore your own reflexivity and self-awareness. In Year 2, with permission, there will be the opportunity to review audio recordings of actual practitioner-client sessions.

You’ll be required to critique an audio recording of a client on placement as part of the skills portfolio assessment.

Assessment

Among other activities, during Years 1 and 2 assessments include essays and presentations on ethics, theory, skills critiques and personal development activities. In Year 2 you’ll also be assessed on your critique of audio from an actual client session. In Year 3, you’ll be assessed on your research proposal and dissertation.

Careers

When you’ve completed the Postgraduate Diploma/MSc plus 450 client hours, you can apply to the BACP to become an accredited counsellor.
