This course is accredited by theBritish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy(BACP), so you can be sure it's relevant and recognised within the psychotherapeutic and health care profession. The course will help you to further your career and become a BACP accredited and autonomous counselling practitioner.

The MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy provides an innovative approach to psychotherapeutic practice that enables you to learn about three different psychotherapeutic approaches; person-centered, attachment theory, and cognitive behavior psychotherapy. A trans-theoretical model is used to provide a framework to integrate these theories to acknowledge the complexities of human problems in a meaningful way.

You'll be encouraged to develop your understanding of the theoretical, social, cultural and ideological contexts in which your clients perceive, confront and manage problems. You'll also consider and analyse major trends and orientations within integrative therapeutic work and develop your ability to identify and use appropriate sources of supervision within counselling practice.

Apart from the first module of the first year, you'll need to provide clinical supervised practice in your own place of work or in your placement. This will allow you to put your enhanced knowledge of counselling and psychotherapy into practice and is an important element of the course. The hours of clinical practice vary for each academic year.

The teaching will vary, depending on the module, to provide you with the most effective learning strategies. You can expect to learn through debates and discussions, experiential exercises, problem-solving, lectures and tutorials. Assessments also vary from written assignments through to practical assessments and a final dissertation at the master's stage. Your personal tutor will support you in your studies.

We're proud to say that our courses are closely mapped against the health and social care sector. This ensures that our curriculum is up-to-date, providing you with the assurance that your learning is current and relevant. This does mean that we do have to respond to national changes such as government policy.

    Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management

    Testimonial from Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management, student at University of Derby

    “Any student who really wants to progress with their learning will not be disappointed when joining the University of Derby. I would recommend all ambitious students interested in the spa industry to come and join the MA International Spa Management course for a brighter future!

     I really enjoyed studying in Buxton. It is a very calm and beautiful place where I have been successful in building good relations with the local people. I will be so sad when I leave because of the memories of some great times I have had here. I feel blessed with the knowledge and experience I got from my tutors, and have enjoyed each and every moment.”
