This course has been designed to provide continuing professional development for counsellors or people who use counselling skills as part of their professional role.

The course is also suitable for those who wish to orientate their future work to counselling as a profession, and incorporates the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Counselling.

To complete the programme to Diploma or Masters level, requires 200 hours of supervised counselling in addition to the academic components of the course. Therefore, all students will normally be in a supervised counselling practice environment at the commencement of their studies.

The course will develop your critical understanding of the theory and practice associated with an integrative model of counselling, and of the interrelationship and contested nature of knowledge, theory, and practice within counselling and psychotherapy.

Your practical counselling skills will be enhanced through critical reflection on personal practice as well as engagement with research and evidence-based practice.

The course also provides the opportunity to design and conduct a substantive study using an appropriate research methodology and associated research methods.

Career opportunities

The course prepares individuals to work in a range of counselling occupations and contexts across the statutory, private and voluntary sectors.

The incorporation of the NOS in Counselling and practice elements within the programme will provide students with the opportunity to work towards and to apply for professional registration.

Regular meetings are held with employers and placement providers.
