City University London

Course Introduction

The course is designed for psychology graduates, healthcare professionals, teachers, social workers, managers and others who wish to develop their interpersonal and counselling skills and improve the application of these within their professional practice. It is not a professional training programme and is not intended to train you to be an independent counselling practitioner. It is, however, an excellent foundation if you want to extend your knowledge and experience of counselling prior to undertaking more advanced training in counselling psychology or a related discipline.

Course Modules

Modules include: Counselling across the lifespan; counselling skills; personal and professional development; theoretical models in counselling psychology; understanding mental health.

Course Additional Entry

Applicants are required to have an honours degree for entry onto this course. Relevant experience or a recognised professional qualification is preferable, but not a necessity.
