The Counselling and Therapeutic Practice degree oﬀers the learning and training you need to become a professional integrative counsellor. You'll gain the knowledge, skills and experience to provide counselling across all age ranges, from children and young people to older adults. You will study a range of traditional 'talking therapies', as well as creative and contemporary approaches such as online counselling.
Work placements are an important part of this counselling degree and will fully prepare you for the start of your career. You will have placements in every year of the course, including 150 hours of supervised professional practice. This meets placement criteria for individual accreditation with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
The School of Psychology and Therapeutic Studies has dedicated Placement Officers and strong links with a wide range of local counselling agencies, employers and counselling services to provide you with the supervised practice hours required.
