This course is aimed at qualified counsellors wishing to continue their professional development and those needing a stepping stone to study a masters award in this area.

You will explore the philosophies, values and cultural assumptions underpinning key counselling perspectives. You will work in groups to review your counselling experiences and you will share ideas and thoughts on different approaches in order to improve your practice.

The final project module will help boost your expertise and help you should you need to design and present your own counselling report or study in the future.

There's a real breadth in what you will investigate and discuss, including mainstream counselling approaches such as the relational approach and cognitive behavioural therapy, widely used in the NHS today.

Discussions with other qualified counsellors help shape and invigorate your debates, sharing knowledge and expertise while also allowing for valuable networking and potential entrepreneurial ventures and partnerships.

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

If you are 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 should you want to progress to masters-level study.

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