Course summary

Make a career change into counselling or enhance your professional practice with a part-time master’s degree in therapeutic counselling with flexible entry options.

Counsellors are essential to the mental wellbeing of a wide range of people in our society. Our therapeutic counselling master's will suit anyone with prior experience in a helping capacity (e.g. social services, nursing or education) who wishes to change career. It can also help you enhance your current professional practice with its insight into the theory and practice of counselling and psychotherapy.

You'll be taught by a team of clinical- and research-active experts, who will provide a range of therapeutic counselling techniques derived from Clarkson's integrative model of the therapeutic relationship (2003). You'll also learn to examine and reflect upon counselling theory in relation to contextual and cultural issues. Graduates of this course will fulfil the training needs for British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accreditation.
