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.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To equip students who have already completed a substantial, skills-focused training in counselling with a consolidated knowledge of the theories and philosophies that underpin their practice
  • To foster students' self-reflective awareness of their current capacities as counsellors and future continuing professional development targets in support of their lifelong working aspirations
  • To develop students' confident engagement with systematic research in counselling by fostering their critical understanding of relevant research methods and enabling them to undertake a suitable counselling research project of personal interest.
