Research into counselling outcomes has consistently demonstrated that it is the quality of the relationship between the client and counsellor that has the most profound effect. It is this quality of the relationship - based on a deep knowledge of the self and the other - that lies at the heart of this course. The theoretical framework is humanistic with the clinical focus on person-centred and Gestalt theory and practice. These schools of thought are best understood within an existential view of life and the individual, allied to notions of freedom of choice, self-responsibility and the search for meaning based on genuineness and self-realisation. Skills development includes working creatively in therapy and explores the theory and methods such as bodywork, imagery and dreams.
Lectures and seminars are offered in each subject and you will also have regular tutorial contact and progress reviews. You will be assessed through written assignments, practical observations (tutor, peer and self-reflection), theory assignments, learning portfolios, presentations, case studies, work with audio, video and transcripts.
