This is a vibrant course, designed to challenge you professionally, personally, and academically. The aim of the BA (Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy is to provide a professional post qualification progression route from Diploma to a full BA (Hons) award. In addition this course offers a choice of two optional specialist routes.
Route A. Adult. This route offers you the chance to develop your understanding of therapeutic work with adults with a specific focus on sexual issues in therapy. It also offers an innovative module introducing you to the emerging area of digital media in therapy.
Route B. Children & Young People. This route is designed to meet a number of the BACP Competences for working with young people (2014). This will help build skills and knowledge that enable you to develop a clinical specialism with children and young people, with a specific focus on working with creative media.
In the first semester you’ll explore person-centred theory in depth and will develop, present and peer review a seminar paper. You’ll also form study and supervision groups to support your learning. You’ll then develop a fundamental understanding of research in counselling and psychotherapy, which will prepare you for the research project and dissertation undertaken during the last semester.
This level 6 course aims to produce reflective practitioners who can understand and demonstrate the ethical, practical and academic skills and knowledge required of an effective counsellor working principally within a humanistic or person-centred approach. The course aims to enable you to work and contribute at the cutting edge in the field.
