Overview

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.

Career opportunities

Students graduating from the BA Counselling and Therapeutic Practice course have the opportunity to access Postgraduate courses on offer at the university to further their studies.

The combination of a broad range of information relating to counselling across the lifespan and a range of placement opportunities means that students graduate with a wealth of knowledge and experience, which can be applied to a wide range of career opportunities as well as to counselling more specifically.

We encourage students to consider working in different fields which can utilise their knowledge and skills to improve access to mental health support more widely. These might include Schools Based Counsellors, Primary Mental Health workers, Mental Health Managers, Mental Health Trainers/advisors, Prison/Probationary service counsellors and working for an NGO.
