If you’re a counsellor looking to top-up your qualification to an honours degree, this course will enrich your professional development and practice. It can also act as a gateway to masters-level study.

You’ll shape and invigorate your debates through discussions with other qualified counsellors. You’ll share knowledge and expertise. And you’ll be able to network with peers, potentially developing entrepreneurial ventures and partnerships.

You’ll boost your expertise with your final project module. This helps you design and present your own counselling reports and studies in the future.

Our teaching team comes from a range of counselling backgrounds. They’ve worked with person-centred, integrative, psychodynamic and humanistic approaches. They’ll help inform this course's content and bring a vast array of experience and insight into seminars, lectures and workshops.

By the end of your course, you’ll have shaped and strengthened your own practice and its identity. You’ll also be able to find more opportunities to deliver counselling in diverse settings and communities.
