As part of this course, you'll:

  • Gain a qualification accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). This is just the first step in your journey to becoming a fully qualified counsellor or psychotherapist
  • Consider a wide range of psychological theories of counselling. This is designed to help you see the Relational Approach in context.

Upon successful completion of our DipHE, you can progress straight onto our BSc (Hons) Therapeutic Counselling (Top-Up).

The course is two years long and is taught on a part-time basis with teaching on campus for one day a week.

You’ll get the opportunity to integrate theory and practice through group and individual supervision. This also helps you to continue your own personal development. During your study, you’ll be given all the help you need to find a suitable work placement.

You’ll have client contact for two, one-hour sessions per week, for a total of 100 hours. You’ll also undertake 20 hours of personal counselling. Your personal counsellor will be part of our university-approved network of professional counsellors. Undergoing clinical supervision with a counsellor is a vital part of becoming a skilled and knowledgeable reflective therapeutic practitioner.
