This Counselling (top up) programme from the University of Greenwich 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.
