About Counselling at University of Greenwich

This programme has been specifically designed for practicing counsellors already qualified to diploma or foundation degree level and working in paid employment, private practice or a voluntary setting. It provides a unique opportunity for counsellors to deepen their understanding of counselling theory and practice, to gain more understanding of client issues and how to work with them, undertake a research project and gain a degree at the same time. It also provides a forum where counsellors from a variety of orientations and backgrounds will be able to share information and experience to their mutual advantage. As awareness of mental health issues gradually increases in the public consciousness and more people seek professional help and advice, there is a rise in demand for counselling and for professionally qualified counsellors. Employers are becoming increasing inclined to seek graduate counsellors due to their increased level of skills, knowledge and ability.

Degree structure

The aims of the programme are:

  • To equip students who have already completed a substantial, skills-focusedtraining in counselling with a consolidated knowledge of the theories andphilosophies that underpin their practice
